The category winners have been announced!

Another week, another prize list…but this one’s worth paying attention to. The Category Winners of the newly established Nero Book Awards have just been announced, and we love the line-up! The awards aim to highlight great authors and outstanding reads in four categories: Fiction, Debut Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Children’s Fiction.

The judges were asked to choose the books they would most want to press into the hands of friends and family for their quality and readability, and their choices are here!

Debut Fiction: Close to Home by Michael Magee

Non-Fiction: Strong Female Character by Fern Brady
