It has been a wonderful, hectic week: West Cork Lit Fest on Monday; Miss Emily came out in North America on Tuesday; I've been writing yet more promo articles for the novel (which brings me close to Emily again); I've been having phone interviews with the USA and a face-to-face one with Glucksman House NYU; I've had the launch of the Italo-Irish anthology Lost Between on Thursday in Dublin and there have been interviews, reviews and articles galore about Miss Emily. Including one I wrote for the Huffington Post.

And today the Irish Times reviews Flash Fiction International, the Norton anthology, which features my Frida Kahlo story: 'Ní Chonchúir’s The Egg Pyramid is one of the collection’s strongest tales, transforming the brutal facts of Frida Kahlo’s relationship with Diego Rivera into a moving, tragic meditation on betrayal.' My stars are clearly aligned this week :)


Anyway, I promised the results of the Miss Emily giveaway today so here they are:

The copy of the US edition of the book goes to Kathy McClung.

The 'Hope is the thing with feathers' fridge magnet and Emily cards go to: Sarah Barry.

The St Brigid's cross and Emily cards go to: Susan T.

Congrats, ladies. Please send me your postal address to nuala AT
