I have two lots of exciting news to share this week.
First, I had a 100 word story ‘Undoing Life’s Choices’ accepted for publication in ‘Chronos: An Anthology of Time Drabbles’, which is already available for pre-order here, and will be published on 10 September 2018.
I’m especially excited for this because two wonderful writers from my online writers group, Kelly Matsuura and Aislinn Batstone, also have pieces in this anthology. So nice to be published alongside such wonderful writers! 🙂
I’ve been sitting on my other exciting news for a few months now: my novella ‘What the Tide Brings’ is being printed as part of The People’s Library project – in their words:
The People’s Library is a contemporary artwork with a uniquely Tasmanian library at its core. Over 150 authors bring this performance library to life through readings, discussions and live events. Join us throughout September where a groundswell of public telling awaits.
And what’s very exciting, and somehow synchronistic with my first piece of news, is that two of the terrific writers from my local writing group are also having their books printed as part of this great project; Pearl Maya, and Isabel Shapcott. And as this project is Tasmania wide, it includes other wonderful writers and friends of mine, Freya Su and Lee Morgan.
I’m so looking forward to seeing everyone’s work in print.
The website is now up (click here to check it out) so you can see all the authors involved, and if you’re going to be in Hobart at all during September, there’s a calendar on the page choc-full of events, so make sure you call into the Salamanca Arts Centre to see all the amazing stories by Tasmanian authors.
I’ll have more news about this in the upcoming weeks, so keep your eye out for more details. 😊
