Glad tidings from Derby! This weekend, at a wonderful ceremony during the EdgeLit literary festival, the Gemmell Award for Fantasy 2016 winners were announced. We’ve got to tell you, we were absolutely delighted!
Firstly, our Megan E O’Keefe, author of Steal the Sky (part of the Scorched Continent series, which also includes Break the Chains and Inherit the Flame) won the Morningstar Award for Best Fantasy Debut! *Throws glitter* Alas, Megan couldn’t make the ceremony, what with living in California AND spending the weekend celebrating her birthday but the wonderful Matt Dovey collected on her behalf (see
