Award Shortlisting for Witchstruck

From £2.84 on Amazon
My Tudor novel WITCHSTRUCK, written as Victoria Lamb and published by Corgi for Young Adult readers, has been shortlisted for an award administered by the Romantic Novelists' Association.

The award is Young Adult Romantic Novel of the Year, and the winner will be announced, along with winners in other RoNA Awards categories, on February 26th in London. Awards will be handed out by Judy Finnigan and Richard Madeley.

As you can imagine, I'm very pleased about this shortlisting. The shortlist is extremely strong and it's an honour to be in such brilliant company.

Witchstruck is the first in the Tudor Witch series. The second book is out in July 2013, entitled Witchfall.

 Jo Cotterill, Sweet Hearts: Model Behaviour, Red Fox (RHCP)
Laura Jarratt, Skin Deep, Electric Monkey/Egmont
Marie-Louise Jensen, The Girl in the Mask, OUP
Victoria Lamb, Witchstruck, Corgi (RHCP)

"Twilight meets The Other Boleyn Girl in this gripping and passionate tale of Meg, a spirited young witch learning her craft amidst the danger and intrigue of sixteenth-century England."
