Fred's Poem: Being an Inky Judge

To celebrate the 2019 Inky Awards Shortlist and Voting we are letting the Inky Judges take over the site! Here is Fred waxing lyrical about being a 2019 Inky Judge.

My Experience as an Inky Judge – by  Fred

Books, books everywhere

So many you are pulling out your hair

You must read them all

That task is not small

The shortlist, a fight to the death

Will you take your last breath?

I’m just kidding it wasn’t all that bad

20 free books (I was quite glad)

all free and you have to read them

There may be a tiny bit of mayhem

The shortlisted books were hard to choose

They were all so good I don’t want any to loose

A range of books so different from the rest

These YA novels are the very best

This stuff is quality it may not be your regular scene

But if you don’t read them it might be you I have to glean

Book reference to Scythe… read it and you will know

What the rage is all about, now, off you go

Vote now!
