A Willesden Mug (not THE Willesden Mug, though...)
I’m reading in Bloomsbury in London on Saturday next, the 10th April, at 5.30pm, for the Willesden Herald Short Story Prize Event. At the Charles Dickens Museum, no less. How very literary!
Four of the shortlisted writers will be reading: myself, Wena Poon, Henrietta Rose-Innes and Tom Vowler.
This event sees the lauch of the anthology New Short Stories 4 which features 14 new stories by new and established authors from around the world. The complete list can be seen here.
Someone will bring home the much coveted Willesden mug. There's a one in ten chance of me winning it, so I'm not holding my breath. But I get to go to London!! That is prize enough. I need a break after the last two weeks which have been very up and down. Meaning mostly down.
According to Amazon (and they know everything, right?) today is publication day for my novel You. So, happy publication day to me! And, no, I do not have copies of the book...
