A few weeks back I mentioned that I’d had a story, The Visitor, accepted in a charity anthology called Being Me.
The anthology includes a total of sixteen stories about people suffering isolation or discrimination as a result of being different, and proceeds will be going to the Being Me charity.
And the good news is that the book is now available to pre order on both Amazon and Smashwords. (Delivery due on 1st November, which is when it becomes fully available to buy.)
So don’t risk missing out – head over to Amazon now to register your interest. And I’ll be back in the next few days with an excerpt from The Visitor and a few more details about both the story, and the book.
I had some lovely news on the writing front the other week, but have been so busy dashing around I’d completely forgotten to pass it on!
Those of you who’ve been following me for a while may remember a short story of mine called The Visitor, which appeared in the Queer Dimensions anthology from QueeredFiction. The book contained some wonderful sci-fi stories, and I’ve always been fond of mine. Sadly, QueeredFiction went out of business several years ago, and the book, and my story, were out of print.
The good news is that The Visitor has been re-born, and will soon be appearing in charity anthology Being Me, from Dreamspinner Press. It’s had a minor make-over with a few howlers ironed out and a somewhat improved ending, but basically it’s still the same tale of time travel, lost opportunities, and the fight to make a better world.
I don’t yet have full details of when the anthology will be available, but will post them, plus cover art, and info on the Being Me charity, as soon as I do. Hopefully this time the story will do more than ‘just visit’, and will stay for a while!
