Chris Cleave goes for Gold

Bestselling author, and client and friend of Bookswarm, Chris Cleave is riding from London to Paris in June for Geoff Thomas Foundation. As he explains:

While researching my novel, Gold, I spent time at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children shadowing a paediatric haematologist. I was in the room when he delivered ominous diagnoses to very distressed parents, and it’s not something you forget. The science that Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research funds will create better outcomes for some of the children I met, so I’m riding for them.

We’ve sponsored him in this worthwhile act of inspired lunacy – and if you would like to do the same, here’s his Justgiving page.

New British Sports Book Awards website out of the blocks

Bookswarm has created a new look for the website of the British Sports Book Awards, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year in style with a dinner at the prestigious Savoy Hotel in London on 21st May. The star studded event will celebrate the very best in sports book publishing from the last year with new awards being added to the line up. This year there will also be a special award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Sports Writing’ that will be presented this year to Nick Hornby, author of the ground-breaking novel ‘Fever Pitch’.

As well as redesigning the site we also migrated it to our favourite Content Management System, WordPress – so now the BSBA team are in total control of their content.
