We are delighted to announce that the Amazing Book Awards are back!! Almost as if we had predicted what a poopstorm 2020 was going to be, we have spent our well imposed fallow year regrouping, planning, priming and preparing for 2021. It’s going to be epic! It’s going to be awesome!! It’s going to be the BEST year ever!!! And we really hope you want to join us for our 10th Birthday next summer. Sadly, we can’t give you an exact date for the awards night just yet, until we find out what’s occurring with them pesky GCSEs. But pencil in a Friday in late June, early July and you’ll be about right.

We’d also like you to send us your Long List suggestions. Remembering we are looking at the June 2018 to May 2020 publishing window. Please could you send these to Sally asap As soon as we have the Long Long List ready we’ll arrange a skypey-zoomy-type call (as getting together face-to-face isn’t really an option yet) to get the Long List ready for launch in late October. You’ll then have until January to contemplate and vote for the books you would like to see on the Shortlist, which will be announced on Monday 1st Feb. 2021.

Lastly, thank you so much for all your support over the last 10 years! We are so grateful for everything your patronage and friendships.

Take care everyone, and looking forward to hearing from you soon.
