Hookline Novel Competition short list 2012

Posted by Yvonne Barlow on Thursday, June 7, 2012
Our reading groups have voted and we have our short list of authors for this year:

Ainscow and the Children of Fire by Paul Beatty of Manchester Metropolitan University

The Net by Andrea Case-Rogers of Manchester Metropolitan University

Charlotte by Andrew Chesney of Anglia Ruskin University

The Ivy Stone by AJ Morgan of University of Wales

Caelica’s Bridge by Victoria Owens of Bath Spa University  

An interesting point to note is that three of the five are men - so far Hookline has published only one male, Trevor Bloom and his historic tale of The Half-Slave. So it is good to see men finding favour in the mostly female reading groups. 
If you would like to know a little more about the stories these writers are telling then please go to our index page.
