Congratulations to Alix Hawley, author of ALL TRUE NOT A LIE IN IT, and winner of the 2015 Amazon.ca First Novel Award! We had a blast together in Toronto, and the honour couldn’t have gone to a nicer person. Not only that, but Alix’s writing is the stuff author dreams are made of: pristine, sharp prose, with mellifluous rhythm. I very much look forward to reading with her in the future. All the nominees were wonderful; check them out here: Sean Michaels, Emma Hooper, and Guillaume Morissette.
