2019 was a hell of a year. A year of hell.
2020 looks almost the same so far, except for this:
My first book, “The Room Next Door”, it out now! And that’s A Good Thing. For me, and hopefully also for you!
Released on 20th January and published by Markosia, it’s a collection of 49 pieces of short writing – mostly stories, but with a couple of bits of poetry and experimentation in there – first written between 2006 and 2018. Early versions of a lot of them were originally posted up at Elephant Words, and all of them have been polished up and made shiny for this collection.
I’m hoping to write a lot more about the book in the near future, including a little bit about the launch party that happened last week, and a bit of a look behind the curtain on what it’s like being a newly published author.
In the meantime please do buy my book! And tell everyone you know about it!
Yes, I know one more piece would have made 50, which is a much more pleasing number. I’d like to pretend I had a good reason for that. I’d like to.
If you don’t know what Elephant Words is, ask me in the comments or somewhere else, and I’ll maybe write a post about it. It was swell.
