What happened to the Terry Pratchett Prize?

A Kill in the Morning was previously shortlisted for the Terry Pratchett prize . It didn’t win, losing out to The Hive by Alexander Maskill. However, Simon Taylor, Editorial Director of  Transworld, was sufficiently impressed by my novel to enter it into the normal acquisitions process at the publishing house. This morning the acquisitions committee at Transworld offered to publish A Kill in the Morning . Simon Taylor commented:

A Kill in the Morning  was one of the standout prize submissions from the off and has a lot of fans at Transworld, who not only loved the story (such fun!) but were also hugely impressed with both the writing and the confidence of the storytelling.

What is A Kill in the Morning about?

A Kill in the Morning is a spy thriller set in an altern­ate 1955, where the Second World War ended in 1941 with a peace treaty. The Nazis are still in power in Germany and engaged in a nuclear-armed cold war with Britain and the Soviet Union. The logline is:

After his mentor is assas­sin­ated, a British agent attempts to carry out a revenge attack on the chief of German secret ser­vice, but when he reaches Germany everything he thought he knew about the world is brought into question.
