Bookangel UK are delighted to announce the 2018 Stephen Memorial Book Award.

Open to published books featuring cats of distinctive character (whether in lead or supporting roles), the award is to commemorate the first feline member of the club. The 2017 award brought over 100 entrants featuring cats large or small, magical or mundane

For 2018, we are partnering with Cat Chat, a charity which provides online homing services free of charge to cat rescues across the UK. Cat Chat has been running since 2000, and estimates that they source homes for over 8,000 cats every year. For each book entered, we will donate £1 of the entry fee to CatChat. Each donation enables them to help more cats out of shelters and into homes.

The 2018 award will be open to entrants from 1st April to 31st July 2018 and will take submissions from books on Amazon, Kobo UK and Smashwords among others. First prize is a certificate, web badge, £100 Amazon UK voucher and a catnip mouse. Three runners up will get certificates and £25 Amazon UK vouchers. Winners will be announced on 1st October 2018.

The 2017 winner was “Tigger: Tales of a Cosmopolitan Cat” by Suzanne Heywood, the memoirs of one cat’s adventures on three continents, detailing encounters with everything from squirrels to dogs to bemused quarantine officers. “Tigger” will be free to download from 26th-30th March, for all the cat-lovers out there.
