100 STORIES FOR HAITI


Less than 2 weeks after the spark of the idea was lit, the 100 Stories for Haiti anthology of short fiction is ready to go to press. This initiative was all started by Greg McQueen. I answered the call for subs sent out by Greg, and I got a story in. I see some pals with stories also included: Billy O'Callaghan, Tania Hershman, Joel Willans, Vanessa Gebbie and Sylvia Petter. I recognise other names too. And it's all for a great cause, as we know.

I had somehow failed to notice in the subs guides that the story submitted should be feel-good. Mine isn't really but it's in there anyhow. It's called 'Juno Out of Yellow' and is about nudes and art and infidelity and what kids should not see.

The full list of 100 stories and their authors is here at the anthology's site. I'll let y'all know when it is available to buy. It will be sooooooon.

Very cool! Put me down for a copy. I'm involved in another wee fundraiser that kicks off at the United Arts Club tomorrow night. On a nude tip and all :-) Cheap life drawings, basically - details here; http://pjnolan.blogspot.com/2010/02/help-haiti-arts-club-drawings.html

Oh, I wasn't involved. Did I give that impression?! I didn't mean to. I just saw a call for subs and sent in a story.
