SILVER THREADS OF HOPE
The cover has been released for Silver Threads of Hope, the short story anthology edited by journalist and broadcaster extraordinaire, Sinéad Gleeson. The book will be published in September by New Island, it contains 28 new short stories by Irish writers and is in aid of Console, the suicide support organisation. Songwriter Adrian Crowley gave permission to use a line from his song 'Bless our Tiny Hearts' as the title and Martin Gleeson designed the cover.
I have a new story in the anthology called 'Squidinky' - it features tattoos (I like what I like), grief and third-age friendship. I know Colm Keegan has a story in there too and I am looking forward immensely to reading all the other writers' stories. I believe they include ones from Roddy Doyle, Anne Enright and Emma Donoghue. Stellar!
