When passing the trophy  over, previous trophy winner, Julie Miller, posted:

Congratulations to Peter Long on being the third recipient of the BBA Perpetual Trophy.

The Brisbane Book Authors Perpetual Trophy is awarded to any BBA member in recognition of outstanding achievement and dedication, and for inspiring others.

I chose Peter for this award for many reasons, including his constant support of other authors within our group and the wider industry. He consistently shows up at many of our book launches, always with a kind word or two, and he brings a wholesome sense of humour that always makes us laugh.

He is a true gentleman, sincere and compassionate, with a beautiful view of the world and the people in it. His passion for history and sharing its stories makes for great reading, and I’m eagerly looking forward to his next book.

Humble, hardworking, and dedicated to his craft, he has inspired me more times than I can count, and I know many others feel the same.

I’m honoured to call this great Australian author a valued colleague and a treasured friend.

Please raise your glass with me, to Peter.
