Breaking News - Linda Gillard's Novel, STAR GAZING, has been Shortlisted for Inaugural Robin Jenkins Literary Award

Linda Gillard's novel STAR GAZING has been shortlisted for the inaugural Robin Jenkins Literary Award for new writing about the Scottish environment. See http://tinyurl.com/58gnth

The award is sponsored by the Forestry Commission Scotland. The winner will be announced at the Edinburgh Book Festival on 24th August at a ticketed event where the shortlisted books will be discussed.

Linda says... "It's long been an ambition of mine to be involved in an event at the Edinburgh Book Festival. I never expected my first appearance would be as a shortlisted author! I must say I'm very chuffed - and a little amused - that STAR GAZING has been shortlisted for Romantic Novel of the Year and a literary award for environmental writing. Not bad for a love story about a grumpy, middle-aged blind woman. "
