Playing with the Moon a 'Hidden Gem'


I've discovered that Playing with the Moon is one of the one hundred on the long (so actually very long) list for World Book Day's Hidden Gems initiative in the UK.

The basic idea is that readers vote on the 100 titles to create a shortlist of ten books, which will be discussed in reading groups and libraries and generally widely promoted. Then a final title will be selected.

This is all very exciting and unexpected.

Elsewhere on the site there's a short story competition and other activities aimed at children and schools.

Fantastic, Eliza!

Is there any way we can vote or otherwise lobby you into the final ten?

Thank you, Faye and Tim. Yes, anyone who would like to vote can go to: www.worldbookday.com/spreadtheword/

and click on See the Books. Then enter 250-300 for page length, UK for Where in the world (in the options at the top right) and PWTM should appear at the bottom of the screen.

Thanks for the support!
