Memory Bones

Last year, a very good friend and a kick-ass writer asked me to write a foreword for his forthcoming short story collection. My immediate reaction was 'hell yes'. I love said friend's short stories and he's a pretty kick-ass person too, and funny (funny is essential).

Now, said short story collection is available to buy as a hardback from the man himself, Mike Stone, and it is a beautiful thing as you will see if you scroll to the bottom of this post were said cover is revealed in all its gorgeousness (art is by Mark Cartlidge). The paperback and eBook are forthcoming from Graveside Tales

Trust me, this is a fabulous collection. Of course, if you don't trust me perhaps you'll trust Graham Joyce and his opinion of Mike's writing - "Mike Stone is a vivid and exuberant writer and a terrific storyteller." Now for the book...

Thanks for this, Cate. Your foreword makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

So if anyone is interested in a signed hardcover, feel free to email me at inspiral at aol dot com. Put "Cate sent me!" in the subject line and I'll knock £3 off the cover price*.

*Usually £15

You're welcome, Mike. It's an awesome collection.

Thanks, Deborah.
