Sometimes when I’m not writing novels, I do short stories and flash fiction as well. I’ve been doing this for as long as I can remember, not for any particular purpose or audience, and the stories pop up on my personal blog when you least expect it.
Anyway a few months ago, I got an email from a friend of a friend, asking if I’d write one for him.
“I’m part of a team of recent graduates who have interned at various UK publishers, but are struggling to break into the industry due to shortage of jobs and high number of applicants for few junior positions,” he explained. That’s a story we all know by now…
Rather than give up, they decided to try their hand at small-scale publishing. The result is a company called Bamboccioni Books, and their first short story collection should be coming out next month. And my story is going to be in it, in print and everything, which is rather exciting, although since OKing the proof I’ve thought of several changes I’d make if I was writing it again… But such is life.
I’m not sure of the exact release date but will keep you posted. In the meantime you should probably check out their website.
