The Court of Broken Knives has been shortlisted for the David Gemmell Morningstar Award for best debut novel of 2017. I am honoured and delighted by this, David Gemmell’s books had a great influence on my own writing and it’s an amazing thing even to have been nominated. And I would very, very much like to win!
