ABSOLUTE PROOF and SLAY IN YOUR LANE Shortlisted for the National Book Awards

We are delighted to announce that ABSOLUTE PROOF by Peter James has been shortlisted in the Audiobook of the Year category of the Specsavers National Book Awards, with SLAY IN YOUR LANE by Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinene shortlisted in the Popular Non Fiction category.

The National Book Awards celebrate the best and most popular books of the year and the winners will be announced on 20th November at an awards ceremony presented by Zoe Ball.

ABSOLUTE PROOF is an international thriller which asks some of lifes biggest questions: what would it take to prove the existence of God? And what would be the consequences? The false faith of a billionaire evangelist, the life’s work of a famous atheist, and the credibility of each of the world’s major religions are all under threat in this gripping tale.

From education to work to dating, SLAY IN YOUR LANE recognises and celebrates the strides black women have already made, while providing practical advice for those who want to do the same and forge a better, visible future. Illustrated with stories from best friends Elizabeth Uviebinené and Yomi Adegoke’s own lives, and using interviews with dozens of the most successful black women in Britain, SLAY IN YOUR LANE is essential reading for a generation of black women inspired to find success in every area of their lives.
