Cornish Short Stories: A Collection of Contemporary Writing was officially published on 2 April with books due in shops and pre-orders to be dispatched on 9 April. It’s wonderful to see the culmination of so much work find its way out into the world.
The image on the left is one of four beautiful woodcut illustrations by artist Angela Annesley included amongst work by nineteen Cornish writers including Tom Vowler, Katherine Stansfield, Cathy Galvin, Rob Magnuson Smith and many more new and established voices.
An unexpected Easter gift was a proof copy of my novella, Travelling in the Dark, from Fairlight Books. It is everything I could have hoped for – a gorgeous design, creamy paper and a surprising substance given it is a novella. Fairlight Books will be at the London Book Fair from 10-12 April in Hall 6, Stand 6F 100, so do stop by and say hello if you are passing.
