This is the final
leg of voting in the finals of The People’s Book Prize.
We are delighted
that Seven Days to Tell You by Ruby Soames is a finalist in the fiction category.
It is tough for a small publishing company like
ours to rise – we may have great stories, terrific writers and a wonderful
niche in allowing reading groups to choose what goes to print. But what we
don’t have are the finances for a publicity campaign.
So this competition is an excellent opportunity
for Hookline to air its wares.
To refresh your memory Seven Days to
Tell You is the story of a woman whose husband disappears only to
return three years later asking for a week to prove his love. Why did he
disappear? Should she take him back?
Seven Days to Tell You was a favourite with our
book groups and was published in June 2011.
If you haven’t yet read the novel but would like
to, I will email you a pdf of the work – a testament to my belief that you will
enjoy this novel.
Deadline for voting is May 30 – if you voted in
the earlier heat, then you don’t need to do so again – votes are cumulative.
Registration is necessary for The People’s Book
Prize ballot, but it only takes a few minutes and it prevents fraud.
