Two Blackbird authors, Diana Morgan-Hill and Jacqui Lofthouse, have been longlisted for the 2017 People's Book Prize. If their books, Diana's Love & Justice in non-fiction, and Jacqui's The Modigliani Girl in fiction, get enough votes from the public they'll be joining Valentina author S. E. Lynes at the glamorous black tie awards ceremony in May.
We had 3 authors in the finals last year - Susie Kelly, Tanya Bullock and Diane Chandler. Diane went on to win the main prize of the evening with her debut novel The Road To Donetsk. Can we do it again?
