I’m very pleased and proud that one of my stories, The Longest Night, was selected to be part of the new Writers Abroad anthology Foreign Encounters,available from 24th October at http://www.lulu.com/shop/writers-abroad/foreign-encounters/paperback/product-20450826.html
Here’s the official Press Release with all the details:
Online writing group Writers Abroad are proud to announce the publication on Wednesday 24th October of their new anthology, entitled Foreign Encounters.
An encounter can be a chance meeting, a planned get-together or even a confrontation. This collection of stories, non-fiction articles and poems features a variety of foreign encounters: with family, friends, lovers, animals, cultures, or just with one’s own prejudices and preconceptions.
Foreign Encounters is the third anthology published by Writers Abroad, an online group of ex-pat writers. All the contributors are, or have been, ex-pats living in places around the globe. Author Julia Gregson, a former ex-pat whose bestselling novel East of the Sun won the Prince Maurice Prize for romantic fiction, has written the foreword.
Following a call for submissions, Writers Abroad received 231 contributions of which they selected 95 for the anthology. They include 16 poems, 38 short stories and 41 non-fiction articles. Since Writers Abroad is a virtual writers’ group, all the work to produce Foreign Encounters has been done online.
All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Books Abroad, a charity which coordinates the donation of free books for schools throughout the world, believing that education is a crucial aspect of human progress. The charity celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and has supplied over 1,600 schools with desperately-needed books.
Foreign Encounters is available from Lulu, price €9.99 (approximately £8.00), from Wednesday 24th October, when this link will become live: http://www.lulu.com/shop/writers-abroad/foreign-encounters/paperback/product-20450826.html.
