What with jetting about the interweb on the blog tour and sorting out the local book launch, I quite forgot to post a link to the post I wrote for the MMU Novella blog, in which I talk about why I think Beside the Sea is an important work that deserves and demands to be read. Please, read the post then go and buy the book. It’s challenging reading but also essential.
And if novellas are your thing and especially if you are planning to enter the MMU Novella competition, you should check out the many other great posts by some darn great writers, all about the novellas they think are worth your valuable reading time.
