The week began with preparation for a talk entitled, A Feast of Flash Fiction and Short Stories at Worthing Writers at the Chichester Festival. It was not a highlight of the festival, it scarcely created a flicker let alone a spark. Although we did our best to tweet, we had an audience of precisely five. Not to put too fine a point on it, if Patricia and I had been organising this, instead of just going along with it, there would have been a different outcome. When I think of all the work that went into our book launch, in comparison to a poster and a few tweets, I am not surprised nor disheartened, because next time, if there is one, we know how to make it work.
I was extremely pleased to receive two great editorial reviews over the last week. The first one from Lincolnshire Life about Ranter’s Wharf and the second from Ingenue Magazine about Search for the Light.
