Sorry blog readers. I’ve been quite and unexpectedly poorly and although I’m on the mend now, it is going to take me a while to catch up with things. Sadly I’ve had to back out of my last two Too Much Information gigs as well as a couple of other events I was planning to attend / workshops I was planning to teach. Sorry if you bought tickets. If it’s any consolation, no-one in the world hates being ill more than me (possibly the Mr hates it more, as it’s his job to stand over me and prise the computer out of my hands).
I hope to be back to blogging again soon, as I have some good news to share as well as some up and coming projects I want to write about. For the time being, I’ll get to your message / email / voicemail / while I can, don’t worry about me and check out these links:
Bugged, a mass overhearing / creative eaves dropping project I’m taking part in – developed by Jo Bell and David Calcutt and launching on the 1st July. Here for more. I’m really excited about this, and have spent some of my time languishing in waiting rooms, hospital wards, clinics and pharmacies scribbling down my over hearings for this project…. can’t wait to read yours.
Next, Rainy City Stories and Creative Tourist are teaming up to run a short story competition and I’m on the judging panel. You can find out more, including how to enter and all about the prizes, by clicking right through to here.
Not So Perfect – Nik Perring’s story collection. I’ve read it and liked it and will be blogging about it better soon, but until I’m able to, take a look at the online buzz surrounding the launch via Nik’s blog here.
To coincide with the US Launch of A Kind of Intimacy, a guest blog by me about one of my favourite books in the on-line version of Elle (I know, and trust me, whatever you’re giggling about at the back, it occurred to me first). Along the same lines, a blog about finding Annie in Borders – face out, no less (we don’t have them here anymore…) by my friend and fellow writer Brian Centrone. Thanks Brian!
That’s all for now. See you soon… 🙂
