The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - NEWS -

More than a dozen works have been se­lected as fi­nal­ists for the High­land Book Prize 2018.

The longlist in­cludes a num­ber of up-and­com­ing au­thors, to­gether with those of more es­tab­lished writ­ers, in­clud­ing Val Mc­Di­armid.

The ti­tles were cho­sen by a 80 vol­un­teer read­ers who had to whit­tle down this year’s en­tries from 56 works to the “best” books with a High­land con­nec­tion in 2018.

The High­land Book Prize is or­gan­ised by Mo­ni­ack Mhor Creative Writ­ing Cen­tre in part­ner­ship with the Ul­lapool Book Fes­ti­val.

Cen­tre di­rec­tor Rachel Humphries said: “I think we have a re­ally strong longlist for the sec­ond year of the High­land Book Prize.

“It’s lovely to see more fic­tion books on the list this year, in­clud­ing two crime nov­els, a genre that was not rep­re­sented last year.”
