Animals won a Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize 2015! The book will be promoted in WH Smith stores over summer. (It is also part of their Fresh Talent promotion – double whammy from WH Smith, cheers!) I’m phenomenally grateful to the judges as the prize will make a big difference both to Animals and to the next book I’m working on. The prize money means writing time. So thank you, Jerwood, very much!
