First Look at Knight Fall – Reminiscent Exile #3

Okay, team,

As promised over on the new¬†Facebook page, when we snuck past 200+ likes, I’d post the first few chapters of Knight Fall. Well, here we are:

Knight Fall – Chapters 1 & 2

These are raw chapters, a few edits away from gold, but strong enough to stand on their own! Looks like Declan doesn’t get to enjoy any downtime!

Cheers,

Joe

Shortlisted for the Hot Key Books & Guardian Young Writer’s Prize

Some excellent and rather humbling news, everyone!

My young adult novel, The Rig, has made the short list (top five out of hundreds) for the Guardian and Hot Key Books Writer’s Prize next year at the London Book Fair. This is exciting on many levels.

But also deliciously validating.

My time spent in the word mines chopping away at this story was not in vain.

Now, unfortunately there’s a bit of a wait to find out if I come out on top – around March, 2013 – but to have made it this far is simply wonderful, and taking a look at some of the competition, I fear I am in remarkable company. I am also the only dude in my category, which is somewhat intimidating on certain levels.

So yeah. Good news is good.
