Congratulations, Linda, on being long-listed. You're up against formidable competition, but I wish you the best of luck. I thoroughly enjoyed your book. As my teen daughter said: "It was freakin' awesome." Unlike the rest of her family, she's not much of a book reader, so that's high praise.

Just read the Guardian.UK announcement....how exciting! Congratulations. Thank goodness it's a long, slow process; lots of frocks to try on.
This has quite made my day.

Delighted for you - and a very well deserved nomination it is. Good luck and let's hope the panel members have their wits about them . . .

Woohoo!!! So exciting -- and exciting for us, too, to have our fashionable yet literary friend make the list. Wonderful. We'll now have to monitor for the short list and send "Linda thoughts" to the panel members.
