The awards are organized in conjunction with Bookfest@Singapore 2013 (which will be happening in December), along with the National Arts Council and the National Book Development Council of Singapore. Voting is open until 30th of September (you can vote for your favorite three books in each category), and as a nice bit of promotion, the book is discounted 20% in all Popular shops until 30th of November.
Also in the English (Children) category are three other Epigram Books titles: Sherlock Sam And The Ghostly Moans In Fort Canning by AJ Low (aka my good friends Adan Jimenez and Felicia Low-Jimenez), Justice Bao: The Case Of The Missing Coins by Catherine Khoo, and Whoopie Lee: The Big Spell Off by Adeline Foo.
If you’re a Singaporean citizen or permanent resident, please give the ballot a look; as an incentive, you’ll be entered in a drawing for $50 Popular vouchers and a one-year Popular card if a book you’ve chosen wins. So vote today!
