The YA Book Prize (UK)

unnamed

Good morning, everyone!! Were you aware that it’s contest time!?

I have recently received a notification from The Bookseller (a website I definitely recommend to all bookworms) about a wonderful new contest that is in the works. I know the announcement comes a little bit late, but I didn’t get it myself until a few days ago! And if you have some interesting YA draft hanging somewhere, this could be your chance to showcase it 🙂

Want to know the bases and how to enter? Please do go on reading!

Where Have I Been!?

20171019_141534

Well well well — it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Hope you haven’t forgotten about me yet, because I’m back!

So what have I been up to? Quite a lot, actually! In these past few months, I left my bookselling job in Oxford to move to Barcelona, where I became a project manager at an international translation company.

Uncharacteristically enough, now I work on the medical devices division, coordinating clinics and labs with translators so that they can promote their products overseas. I’m saving lives, people!!

During my stay in Barcelona I have survived a terrorist attack (my office is really close to where it happened), a controversial referendum, a declaration of independence, and just generally a lot of noise on the streets. Who knew life in Barcelona would be so hectic!

As for my creative side, I’m happy to announce that I’m translating SirenSong into Spanish! Coming to your nearest bookshop earlier than you think 😉

I may also have another announcement to make, but that will come in time…

So how are you all? Did you miss me a lot? 🙂
