Vote for The Fair Queen in the Indie Fantasy Book Awards!

Thank you so much to everyone who nominated TFQ in the first round of the Indie Fantasy Book Awards 2020! With your help we managed to get into the top ten and go through to the final round!

The votes are now open and it’s even easier this time, all you have to do is click the link below, enter your email address and click on my book and submit! 🙂

I’d be so grateful if you could spare ten seconds to vote for me, I know I’m up against some really big indie authors, but every vote counts and will help me to reach more readers.

Thank you so much if you do take the time to vote! Voting is open until Feb 28th, and I’m planning to do a price drop in the final week before the winner is announced, so if you haven’t read The Fair Queen yet and have been thinking about buying it, you might want to wait until it goes on sale. I’ll let you know here when the discount goes live.

I’m also going to be over on my Instagram account reading snippets of the book on my Stories and maybe even going live over the next few weeks, so if you don’t already follow me over there feel free to pop over and say hi @lyndseyhall.

Catch you later! 🙂



Help The Fair Queen win Indie Fantasy Book of the Year 2020!

Hi lovely folks! I’ve got a tiny favour to ask of you today, if you can spare me thirty seconds.

TFQ is up for Indie Fantasy Book of the Year 2020, and 14 Jan is the last day for nominations. The top ten go through to the next round, and I’m currently around 15th place so I’d love a few more nominations!

Nominate TFQ (and your favourite 2020 indie fantasy releases) here.

Thank you so much for helping me to reach more readers! I appreciate your help in getting my first book baby into the next round of the awards.

If I win I’ll do a giveaway on Instagram and email you here to let you know about it!

Stay safe and well.



The Versatile Blogger Award

Thanks to Nicola @ Thoughts on Fantasy for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award back in August! I’m a little behind on tags, clearly, so let’s jump straight in.


Versatile blogger award Lyndsey's Book Blogger



  1. Thank the bloggers who nominated you and share their links.
  2. Nominate at least 10 bloggers for the award and provide links to their blogs.
  3. Also inform them about their nomination.
  4. Reveal 7 facts about yourself that your readers may not know.

7 Facts About Me:

  1. My favourite animal is the dolphin and I actually got to swim with them in Mexico a few years ago, which was one of my big bucket list dreams!
  2. I just started journalling this New Year, and I’m finding it so useful for downloading my thoughts and easing my anxiety and stress. I’m no artist so it’s not a beautiful bullet journal like some, but it’s mine and I love it.
  3. I’m originally from High Green in Sheffield, which is where the Arctic Monkeys are from, but I’ve never met any of them. My childhood babysitter’s son served them in the local pub once though…
  4. My dad named me Lyndsey after Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Man, who is obviously a man, but whatever, Rumours is the greatest album ever written.
  5. I’ve recently become completely obsessed with true crime, especially the podcast My Favorite Murder by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. I’m going to their live show in Manchester with my friend who introduced me to the podcast in May and I cannot wait!
  6. My eyes are kind of hazel, they’re basically green with a ring of brown around the pupil, so when the sun shines on them they look super green, but in dim light they just look brown.
  7. I can’t dance or sing, plus I’m terrible at sport. I haven’t got a competitive bone in my body so I just don’t care about winning enough to try when I’m not naturally talented. I believe there’s room for everyone at the top!


I’m not going to nominate anyone as I’ve been a bit disconnected from the blogging community recently (being pregnant is more all-consuming than I expected!) so if you fancy sharing 7 little-known facts about yourself, feel free to pinch this award!
