We are over the moon to announce that five MM Agency authors have been longlisted for The Guardian‘s Not the Booker Prize, currently in its twelfth year.

The award relies on public nominations, and now the general public have voted for their favourite novels published between October 2019 and September 2020, the list is further whittled down to a shortlist of three.

We are thrilled that each of the brilliant books below have been chosen – and encourage you all to get voting. The shortlist will be announced on 17th August.

And so, without further ado, we give you the longlisted MM authors, and their brilliant books:

Rona Halsall and her twisty psychological thriller, One Mistake, published by Bookouture.

Abigail Mann’s hilarious debut, The Lonely Fajita, published by HarperCollins / One More Chapter.

Beth Morrey’s “coming of old” stunning debut, Saving Missy, published by HarperCollins / HarperFiction.

Clare Pooley’s gorgeous uplit novel, The Authenticity Project, published by Penguin Random House / Transworld.

Lesley Sanderson’s edge-of-your-seat thriller, I Know You Lied, published by Bookouture.

It is such an achievement just to have been longlisted for this prize, and we send huge congratulations to each and every one of these authors.

We have everything crossed for 17th August!
