The Selfies Award: congratulations to Jane Davis

IMG_20190313_091823_500

Yesterday I attended the London Book Fair for the first time ever, thanks to BookBrunch, who provided free tickets to everyone on the Selfies Award shortlist. In the morning I spoke as part of a panel of four on the experience of self-publishing; then I met up with a friend and we went out along a very wet Kensington High Street to get some lunch and agree that the whole thing was very impressive but a bit overwhelming, and then I was back in time to wander around the fair a bit more before the awards ceremony.

The Selfies Award went to Jane Davis for Smash All The Windows (just under my arm in the picture), and it’s very well deserved. I can’t think of anyone who puts more work into making self-published books into a really high quality product, or, for that matter, anyone who does so much to support and encourage other authors in the field. Congratulations, Jane!

  1. HI KATHLEEN, I HOPE YOU ARE WELL. THEY SAY THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LOSER, YOU EITHER WIN OR LEARN FROM THE EXPERIENCE.
    I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE PART IN THE AWARDS NEXT YEAR BUT I AM UNSURE ABOUT THE PROCESS. IS THE AWARD BASED ON THE BOOKS YOU WROTE OR ON YOUR BLOG AND WERE YOU INVITED TO SUBMIT OR DID YOU CONTACT BOOK BRUNCH. IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU COULD EXPLAIN THE INFORMATION IN YOUR BLOG.
    I LOVED THE PHOTO AND LIKED THE WAY YOU PRAISED JANET, BEST CHINA

    • Thanks China! It’s based on my latest book. The process is a little bit complicated – you have to subscribe to BookBrunch and you then get access to the link where you can upload your book and give some background about your marketing plan. They may change it next year. I heard about the competition on Twitter.
