The shortlist for the 2012 Awards has been announced. If you are a regular reader here, you will have heard about Red Ribbon before. Louise Phillips is a fellow blogger and an award winning writer.
Her debut novel, Red Ribbons, has been nominated for a Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards 2012.
It is a monumental achievement, I'm just thrilled for her. I first met her via Twitter and have since met at bookish events. She deserves my vote and your vote, too.
