Irish Book Awards
Well, the IBA dinner was on Wednesday night and Gallows Lane didn't win, but we had a great night anyway. Thanks to all who supported the book by voting.
One of the nicest parts of the evening was meeting the other nominees, Arlene Hunt, Tana French and Alex Barclay who won the award. All three are very charming, very talented ladies. The Irish crime fiction scene is not dissimilar to the MNW family - a group of writers connected by their love of books and glad to be given the chance to write and to be published. It's an honour to be part of both.
