Six Red Pennies




Releasing a major-squee. My short story, Postcard Wings above Blackpool Sands, is to appear in issue one of KV Taylor's The Red Penny Papers - I should book a train seat and celebrate atop the legendary Blackpool Tower.

Beware, champagne corks (or more likely candy floss sticks) expected to tumble down mid party.

*Side Note: When the tower opened in 1893 it cost sixpence to go to the top - I wonder if they were red?

Thanks, Adam.

With Katey at the helm, it's going to rock (ooh - I feel a Blackpool rock pun budding).

Sixpence is cheap for a tower. They should have got two :-)

Congrats on the acceptance...

Woot! And maybe, even, squee.

Well, you already know how thrilled I am. But let me say it again: eeee!

Wish I could share a bottle with you. Think of me as you're throwing corks at the unwitting Blackpool vacationers. (And residents, but I'm sure they know better than to venture too near.)
