I’ve got some good news for you if you’re the sort of person who likes to go into actual physical shops and buy books. Oh yes. *drumroll*
I’m pleased to announce that you can now buy my short story collection, Hooves Above The Waves, in the Fruitmarket Gallery bookshop!
That means if you’re not into your Amazon and Smashwords ebook goodness, you can now buy it in two Edinburgh bookshops, what with Blackwell’s South Bridge stocking it too. TELL ALL YOUR EDINBURGH FRIENDS.
And there’s more. Umbrellas Of Edinburgh, which contains one of my stories, is now into its second print run, selling 1000 copies in two months. Not too shabby! You can buy direct from the publisher here, or pop into Waterstones/Blackwell’s for a copy. And if you’re still hovering in the Scottish Writers section of the latter, I hear there’s a really good short story collection by a UNESCO Emerging Writer, by the way. AHEM.
If you’d like a taste of some of the other Umbrellas writers, you can pop along to Golden Hare Books tonight for a pre-International Women’s Day shindig with poetry, cake, and homemade gin. And if you’ve bought a copy of my stories in one of the other lovely bookshops and would like it scribbled on, I’ll be at the Museum of Childhood all afternoon tomorrow, helping edit Wikipedia for IWD. Hurrah. And on that note, it’s back to the editing coalface. (Which would be easier with some gin. Maybe buy my book and help with the gin fund?)
