KOALA Honour Award

On Thursday 3 November, You Choose: Alien Invaders From Beyond the Stars got an Honour Award at the KOALAs, NSW’s annual children’s choice awards, in the Fiction for Younger Readers category. How cool is that?

Even cooler… the other Honour Award went to Jacqueline Harvey’s Alice Miranda at Camp. I feel very privileged to be in such great company.

Sadly, I was not able to attend the awards ceremony, so the organisers asked me for a short video acceptance to play on the day. Of course, I couldn’t just record an ordinary thank you speech. Instead, I took inspiration from my book’s title and created a tacky alien invasion vid. Hope you enjoy it…
