My husband is forever getting parcels in the post and I, who love getting post, have to content myself with the pizza menus and the dull letters addressed to ‘Dear Homeowner’.
However today, it was my turn.
Someone had sent me a book!
The title excited me, ‘Barcelona to Bihar – stories that travel with you’
It was obviously someone who knew I’d lived in Barcelona and had seen it and thought of me.
And then I opened the book and discovered my name was printed inside it!
At the beginning of the year my short story ‘Five Pound Short’ made the Top 20 of the Earlyworks Press short story competition and the result is this beautiful anthology in my hands.
It contains 20 short stories that take you across the world and offer you hours of escapism.
This is what the editor said about it:
‘Taking in letters from Africa, from the Solomon Islands and from previous centuries; witnessing potentially murderous mountaintop encounters with goats and even trolls, navigating a European tunnel, an English bell tower and a social divide wider than the Australian outback, the mind of the reader must twist and turn, encompassing many miles and many moods, before coming home with a view from another planet as to what it might mean to be human.’ – Kay Green, editor.
I only have 20 books to sell so if you would like one for you or perhaps as a gift to someone else, don't leave it too late!
The anthology costs £8.99 (including post to UK) and you can pay via paypal
