Update – Event More Excited ‘Lost’ – Writing Magazine

3 Aug

Very excited that my short story Lost, which won second prize in the Writing Magazine’s 750 words competition, is now available to read on the Writers Online website, although you may need to be a subscriber to access. Great to get feedback to in the judge’s comments section.

Update:

Just found out that the story is also in the printed version of the magazine – unfortunately mine doesn’t normally arrive until Saturday, so need to make do with a photography sent via the lovely Ethly Smith, whose book Changed Times is out now.

If you manage to read the story I’d love to know what you thought. And you just know you’re going to get a photo of me with the magazine tomorrow, with a big grin on my face.

A Good Way to Start the Day

8 Jul

With a yipee and a cheque for winning the Writing Magazine’s 750 word competition. You’ll be able to read my entry shortly online, but for the moment I’m just going to sit here with a smile on my face. 100_0791 - Copy

Oh, and in case you’ve forgotten, since I’ve only mentioned in 3 times – All the Places I’ve Ever Been is still on a Kindle Countdown deal, although it ends in exactly 1 day 13 hours, from time of writing – basically you need to get it by tomorrow!!!

Holiday Reading – Cheap (but Great Quality)

3 Jul

Right folks, time for another Kindle Countdown Deal for All the Places I’ve Ever Been (99p for next two days, then going up in increments for a few days before it returns to its normal price).

All the Places I’ve Ever Been is a coming-of-age novel set in the late 1980s. It follows teenager Meg Burns on a round the world journey as she flees from a violent attack in Glasgow to travel with Australian rock band MindSet. Streetwise but emotionally immature, each new city brings opportunities and challenges. The band gives Meg the security she has never had, but when support turns to control and secrets re-emerge, she needs to decide who she can really trust.

 

No matter how far she runs, Meg can never escape the past.

If you’ve already bought it, I’d love it if you could share this link with your friends, and add a review on Amazon (even if it’s only a word or two). If you haven’t already bought it – what are you waiting for – you won’t get it cheaper.

If, like me, you don’t actually own a Kindle (I’m still struggling with a Nook, which I think is going to be upgraded very soon), then you can buy a print copy, online, or in person if you see me out and about.

Happy Holidays.
