Carousel Aware Book Award 2016

Little did I know that it is possible to almost jump out of the window from excitement - wheelchair and all - when reading an email.

The cause for the excitement?

... That my Into the Light book has been SHORTLISTED for the very first Carousel Aware Prize for Independent Authors (The CAP Awards) My book is one of five in the Best Non Fiction category.

The winners of The CAP Awards will be announced on the evening of Tuesday the 25th of October in The Teacher’s Club,  Parnell’s Square, Dublin at 7pm. To express your interest in attending the awards night please register here  "There will be a raffle for Aware on the night, with prizes such as many of the CAP entry books amongst other gems... To get us started, we hear that Dubray Books has a particularly juicy prize up for grabs."

The award is on aid of Aware,  an Irish Charity Educating and empowering people to look after their mental health. Their mission statement is:" Aware undertakes to create a society where people affected by stress, depression, bipolar and mood disorders are understood, free from stigma, and are encourages to accesss appropriate therapies.

I hope you can join us on the night, and while I have you here, I would like to thank all of you who have believed in my Into the Light  project and have supported me throughout the making of it and since its birth exactly a year ago.

Love and light to you all.
