Congratulations Saradha Koirala!
‘Learning to love Blue’ has won the award for Best YA Fiction 2022.
It’s incredibly rare for a self published book to be a finalist, let alone win its category, and this book was a true labour of love. Saradha poured her heart and soul into it and it shows. I know I loved editing it.
If you want more, read Saradha’s first book about Paige, ‘Lonesome When You Go’, published by Mākaro Press in 2016 and also edited by me!
It’s been an amazing journey with you, Saradha. I’m so proud to see your book recognised!
