I’d love to see a new category for the WA Premier’s Book Awards

Today the State Library announced the 2016 WA Premier’s Book Awards shortlist, the books from which the category winners will be selected.  Crilum didn’t make the shortlist unfortunately, but I am pleased that the judges accepted it for review and a few people know about it now.

I think that my book may have had a better chance had there been a category of independently published works.  All of the books that did make the shortlist were backed by big publishers and I have to think that carried a lot of weight with the judges.  Another thing is that I’m disappointed that a ‘longlist’ wasn’t released.
