This year saw the launch of the UK’s latest literary prize – the Page Turner Awards. Created with the goal of “changing writing careers”, the eBook Award sought out the very best work by national and international self-published authors, and the Writing Award searched for unpublished writers actively looking for a literary agent or publisher. Entrants from both awards were picked over by a prestigious judging panel comprised of bestselling authors and publishing industry veterans.
Among the winners in this year’s inaugural Awards is Eastbourne-based travel writer Robert Fear, who received a special commendation from the judging panel for his captivating memoir, Summer of ‘77: Beaches, bars and boogie nights in Ibiza.
We spoke to Robert, who was the top scoring UK author in the eBook Non-Fiction Award category, about his achievement and his writing.
