Today we got confirmation from Arts Council England that our application to Grants for the Arts, ‘A Route For Fiction’ has been successful. It’s great news for us and for writers. There’ll be a few good books on the way.
We’ve three stunning novels set for release this year, including one in translation, and this award will really help us get behind these titles and help them find the audience they deserve. The award also gives great support for us to afford time to develop some manuscripts in our Few Good Books submission round. We recently longlisted a number of titles from that round and we can now confidently draw up a shortlist in the coming month or two. It goes without saying that the award will allow us to pick up more titles than we would have been able to without it.
The hard work starts now, but we look forward to it and offer our sincere thanks of gratitude to Arts Council England for supporting us.
