Costa Book Awards


I am one of the Costa Book Award judges this year.

The Costa Book Awards is the only major UK book prize that is open solely to authors resident in the UK and Ireland and also, uniquely, recognises the most enjoyable books across five categories – First Novel, Novel, Biography, Poetry and Children’s Book – published in the last year.

I’ll be judging the First Novel category. If you’d like to download the entry form it’s here. The deadline is 26th June. Looking forward to reading the entries.
