Sorry for the long silence – it’s been a bit crazy with my dissertation, part-time job, new-job-hunting and working on my novel! But I’ve been working on the University of Southampton Creative Writing Society’s anthology as the sole editor and I finally finished it this week! You can view it here.
It contains my short story Darren, as well as the poems Lucy Couldn’t Say No and Dear Sylvia Plath, which have all appeared on this blog. There will also be a University of Southampton MA Creative Writing Anthology out soon (which I’ve done a bit of proof-reading/copy-editing for) which will contain my short story Chance, which hasn’t been posted online yet!
Hope to have some more posts soon!
Found there was an issue on BigCartel when trying to pay with Paypal – this problem should be fixed now!
My copies have arrived! I’ve set up a bigcartel store which you can access from my blog’s sidebar, and this is the only place you can get a signed copy🙂 You can also get copies from Amazon through print-on-demand! I won’t ship copies myself until Tuesday as Wednesday is the official release date, and I’m still working on making an ebook version available, so hopefully that should be up on Wednesday.
Some good news🙂 The book is all done and I’m waiting on a test copy from the printers. This does mean that the book most likely won’t be available in print on the release date, but it WILL be available as an eBook (which is cheaper). I want to make sure the book looks good before I order more copies or set it up as print-on-demand. If all goes well, I should *hopefully* have print copies available in May, but the 20th April remains the release date for the digital version!
So…I’ve been finishing up with the collection (only formatting stuff left to do) and I am happy to announce the title, cover and release date!
So, drum roll, please…
I might make minor changes, but this is largely it! And my (hopeful) release date is 20th April 2016, which, appropriately, is the one-year anniversary of the beginning of a lot of the crap I have written about.
Even if printed copies don’t make it by 20th April, I will make sure the eBook version is available. Details about that will hopefully be in my next post! I’m going to bulk-order some printed copies, which will make it cheaper than getting them printed individually on demand.
Let me know your thoughts🙂
