The list of authors with stories accepted in Caroline Smaile’s charity anthology in aid of  One in Four has been published. It’s full of some great writers, many of whom I know in passing or fairly well via the social power of the interweb. It also features my name. I’m super-pleased to have two 100-word stories work accepted for inclusion in the collection. Here’s to it raising lots of cash for a very worthwhile cause.

The stories included in the collection had to be inspired by songs. For those interested, the songs that provided inspiration for my stories were this:

Neko Case – This Tornado Loves You

and this:

Los Campesinos! – In Media Res

Can’t wait to see what tracks had other people scribbling stories.

A couple of other exciting bits of news in the announcement post are:

  • Becky Adams (she designed/hand-stitched both the covers for Caroline’s novel ‘Like Bees to Honey’ and novella ’99 Reasons Why’) has agreed to design the front cover
  • There is talk of a singer-songwriter, mid-1980s pop-teen-idol-star writing the foreword.

Congratulations to everyone who got a piece accepted. Now let’s promote the arse off this and get lots of cash to a good cause.
