In good company

I'm thrilled to have one of my stories published in a real-live, used-to-be-a-tree, crisp-when-you-turn-em-pages book! Not only is that very exciting (it's my first), but some of my writing friends are also in Miscellaneous Voices: Australian Blog Writing #1, as well as some great Australian writers (fiction and non-fiction), including James Bradley, Alan Baxter, A S Patric and Angela Meyer. My lovely friend Amanda also has a poem in there. It's good to be included in such company, I must say.

Also a big shout-out to writer and publisher Karen Andrews of Miscellaneous Press - she conceived the idea for this project last year, when debate was raging among the intelligentsia over whether anything published on a blog was any good. Karen seemed to think it was and, voila, the idea for a book was born. She put a call out for Australian bloggers to send in their best work and I was fortunate to have 'No Sanctuary' selected for the anthology.

The press launch will be held at Readings in Carlton, Melbourne on 14 April.

You can order the book here. Postage (within Australia) is free on purchases before 1 April. While you're visiting Miscellaneous Press, check out Karen's book for kids - Surprise - my little ones love it.
