Kaleidoscope Anthology Published

12 Oct


Writers Abroad has just published their latest anthology, Kaleidoscope, to mark the International Year of Light. It features my fun little piece of flash fiction, ‘Lux Italiana‘ (Italian Light), and while I’m not going to pretend that half a page from me is worth the £5.99 cover price, there is also lots of other good fiction, non-fiction and poetry from various ex-pat and ex-ex-pat writers, and all profits go to the charity Room to Read, which promotes literacy in the developing world.

Kaleidoscope is available on Amazon and Lulu, and as today (12th October) is the launch day, there is also a Facebook event from 10am to 6pm with regular competitions and prizes, so pop over and have a look. And then buy the book, of course – if not for yourself, then as a (whisper it) Christmas present for any ex-pats or ex-ex-pats who are on your nice list.
