Willesden Herald: New Short Stories 11

Yes, I put together this collection of short stories. If you like it tell your friends. If you don't like it, tell your enemies.
Unboxing

If you read the book, a review on Amazon or elsewhere would be very welcome, no matter whether positive, negative or mixed.

Available from: WaterstonesPowells, Amazon.comAmazon.co.uk, Book Depository & other online booksellers.

Book Depository, which is also owned by Amazon, offers this with “free delivery worldwide.” Sounds a bit too good to be true, no? If you successfully order from a research station in the Antarctic or the heart of Amazonia, I’d love to hear about it.

To order from a local bookshop, quote publisher Willesden Herald, ISBN 9780999527764, which they can find in their Ingram catalogue and order for you.

If you want to avoid buying from Amazon, and don’t want to buy from Powells or Waterstones or order from your local bookshop, I have a small stash of copies, which you’re welcome to have at cost. If that appeals, contact me to by email to arrange.

Reading for this

Black History Month

I’ll be there supporting this with Willesden Green Writers’ Group, on Friday at 8 pm, reading a bit of one of my stories that touches on immigration. It’s a self-contained part of “The End”, which is the first story in All Those Endearing Young Charms. (And yes – before you ask – the last story is called “The Beginning”).
