Earlier this year I was invited to the Specsavers Nielsen Bestseller Awards to receive two silver awards for The Acccident and The Lie (for sales of over 250,000 copies).
It was SUCH a glamorous affair. The wonderful Mariella Frostrop was the MC and so many amazing authors were honoured with awards including Paula Hawkins, Maggie O’Farrell (I had a bit of a fan girl moment when I realised I was standing behind her in the queue), Peter James, Phillipa Gregory, Dougie and Tom from McFly, Jill Mansell, Clare Mackintosh and so many more. It really was a ‘pinch me’ moment and one of the most magical nights of my career.
Here’s a selection of photos from the official website and by my friend Rowan Coleman who came with me,
And here’s a video of me being interviewed after I received my awards (terrible freeze-frame!).
Not long now until THE FEAR is published (22nd March). I have been so chuffed with the reaction from authors and readers who’ve received advance proofs and am excited and nervous about the book coming out.
I’ve just started writing my sixth psychological thriller and life is becoming increasingly hectic as I try and balance writing the first draft with posts for the blog tour, articles for magazines and websites, and answering Q&As. I need more hours in the day.
