|Ten stories. No prisoners.|
Well, now he has."
My first short story collection was published on Kindle and Smashwords in April 2012. Something Nice has sold incredibly well for a short story collection and has picked up some terribly kind reviews over the years.
I spent much of the first decade of the new century quietly racking up small competition wins and magazine / e-zine publications with my short stories. One day I realised that all the rights had reverted to me, and that I had a sizeable back catalogue of professionally-edited stories.
The rest is, as they say, history. I sometimes miss the original cover: a photo of a pint of beer next to my writing notebook in a pub garden. I thought its home made simplicity was sort of charmingly inept. But Lawston Design did a stunning job on revamping the title in 2014, and I've never really looked back.
