The Great Edinburgh Story Shop Line-Up 2016

Time to follow up last month's far from subtle hint about my other writing news. No, my novel has not found a friendly literary agent or an eager publisher; it hasn't even been sent to any, but that's my project for the summer (and now I've announced that here, I must do it...)

At the beginning of June, I learned I have been selected for Edinburgh City of Literature's 'Story Shop' at the International Book Festival this year. Each day of the festival, one 'emerging writer' is chosen to read an original short story to an audience in the Spiegeltent. It's a ten minute slot, it's FREE, and I'll be reading a short story I've written called The Merry Dancers.

Obviously, when the organisers contacted me, I assumed they had made a monumental mistake, but a meeting and subsequent photographic evidence suggests I really am one of the Edinburgh Seventeen!



Okay, it's a bit like Where's Wally? but I'm right there, in the back of the picture, in the blue (honest).

There's a masterclass coming up and a recording session so that you can hear a taster of each story on the City of Literature Website.

So, this will be almost all of my 15 minutes of fame. Please come along and bring all your friends, neighbours, children, and any strangers you can drag in off the street - my only worry is being the first Story Shoppers ever to read to a sea of empty seats...

It's Tuesday 23rd August at 3pm

Okay, boast over. But I'm making the most of it because when will I ever have the chance again to appear at the world's biggest book festival - and get a pass to the author's yurt!

Hope the sun is shining on you as July takes off

  1. How sad that I don't live closer (the South of England to be exact) as I would have loved to have heard you. Well done for being chosen and, yes, make publication of your novel your next priority... I'll be checking up on you!
