Lloyd Markham's Bad Ideas\Chemicals shortlisted for Wales Book of the Year 2018

I'm really pleased that Lloyd Markham's debut novel has been shortlisted for Wales Book of the Year! #proudeditormoment We've worked long and hard on this book and it is great that it is starting to get the recognition I feel it deserves! As his housemate Crystal Jeans is also shortlisted, it'll be fun to see their friendship break into tatters as the announcement day gets closer too ;)

& I'm chuffed for Tristan Hughes and Hummingbird too, an enchanting, haunting exploration of place and the personal that I urge you all to read.
