I’m thrilled to bits and even my lovely new Ether colleague, Suzanne Rosenwasser at … Write Here … is ‘tap-dancing from across the pond’ for me today! I’ve just heard that four of my short stories have been accepted for publication by Ether Books. The first story; ‘The Time to Sow’ will be available to download for free from today, from the Apple App store, and the following three will be available over the next ten days or so – and they’re only 59p!
Short stories are perfect for mobile phones and will no doubt provide a fantastic revival of the short story genre. If you have an iPhone, iTouch, iPad or Mac (Blackberry and Android devices will be included during 2011), Ether has a wonderful variety to offer from well-known and new authors, including Hilary Mantel, Fay Weldon, Penelope Lively, Alexander McCall Smith, Lioneal Shriver, Maggie O’Farrell and many more. Take a look at their website at http://etherbooks.com and you could soon be reading one of Sir Paul Mc Cartney’s essays! I feel so privileged to be part of this wonderful community.
