The People's Book Prize

Posted by Yvonne Barlow on Monday, May 21, 2012

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.

If you enjoyed the novel, we would love your vote.
