I’m delighted to say to that ‘Voraces’, the French edition of ‘Ancient Appetites’, has been shortlisted in France for the ‘Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire 2011′. It’s in the category ‘Roman jeunesse étranger’, (number six on the list of categories on the award’s site). I’m up against some pretty tough competition. Here’s the full list for the category:
- Le Sortilège de Pierre de Cornelia Funke
- Voraces de Oisin McGann
- Alcatraz (Série) de Brandon Sanderson
- La Confrérie de l’Horloge de Arthur Slade
- Léviathan de Scott Westerfeld
The winner will be announced during the Etonnants Voyageurs Festival in Saint-Malo, which takes place between the 11th and 13th of June. I’m also delighted to say I’ll be there doing some events – and having a bit of a holiday – so I’ll get to hear the result live! ‘Coincidence?’ I hear you ask.
