My new publication is the first printed book in which all the writing is by me, rather than being a contribution to a collection. It is a novella, and is also by far the longest piece I have so far had published.
This is one of three works selected for publication from the entrants to the recent Grist chapbook competition. The other two are ‘Cowboy Genes’ by Wes Lee, and ‘A Call In The Night’ by Gabrielle Leimon, both collections of short stories. You can read a review of the three works by Jim Greenhalf of the Bradford Telegraph & Argus here:
You can order ‘Escape Kit’ from here:
The launch party was held at Queenie’s Coffee Shop in Huddersfield, near the Lawrence Batley Theatre. It was hosted by Rebecca Legg, and was a resounding success. Gabrielle Leimon and I read extracts, and Michael Stewart read on behalf of Wes Lee.
I thank the editorial team for their speed and professionalism: Michael Stewart, Jayne Edge, Sarah Milne, Kate Pearson, and James Whitely.
