A massive congratulations to our young adult author, Estelle Maskame, who has won the Arts Award at the 2016 Young Scot Awards!
Estelle attended the glittering Young Scot Awards Ceremony on Wednesday evening (27th April) at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. The event was hosted by Radio DJ Edith Bowman, and Estelle was one of three finalists up for the Arts Award.
Since its launch in 2006, the Young Scot Awards has celebrated the inspirational contributions of thousands of young Scots who have made a real difference to communities across Scotland, recognising the amazing achievements of some of Scotland’s truly remarkable young people.
Since signing a book deal for the trilogy at the age of 17, Estelle is now enjoying international success. Her DIMILY series has been published across the world in 11 countries so far, including the USA.
Estelle is fresh off of a European publicity tour, meeting fans and press in Helsinki, Berlin and Madrid, with more planned trips for this summer. Estelle recently headlined at YAY! YA, Scotland’s first teen festival, and was also shortlisted for a Romantic Novelist’s Association Award for the Best Young Adult Novel 2016.
The B&W Team were at the awards ceremony to celebrate Estelle being a finalist. We are all absolutely delighted for her and look forward to publishing Did I Mention I Miss You?, the final book in the DIMILY Trilogy in July this year!
