Sour Saturday

On a trawl of the internet, I noticed that the electronic version of Phantasmagorium (edited by Joe Pulver) is now available to purchase. It features my story 'The Sour Aftertaste of Olive Lemon' along with stories by Edward Morris, Cody Goodfellow, Ann K Schwader and Michael Cisco.

It's the first day of my summer holiday today (not that I'm going anywhere more exotic than my back garden or maybe Blackpool) and we have actual sunshine with the promise of more to come. I was expecting to spend the week in pink Wellington boots. I shall have to de-mothball the summer wardrobe (which is in fact a lie as, despite the weather, I tend to wear t-shirts all year long).

Day one has gotten off to a productive start. One short story finished, one biography made up (well that was the brief - actually made up bio's are so much more fun and easier to write than real bio's), and about to type up an old short story and thus start the beginnings of a new short story collection that I've been meaning to do for forever (okay, a few months). What is with the lies today?

I LOVE that story. And man, that cover is effing brilliant.

Enjoy your staycation--those are the absolute best for dual purpose productivity and relaxation. Mmmmm.
