It's National Short Story Week this week, a chance for all of us who love the form to support and praise it.
You can find out more by visiting the Short Story Week website here. You'll find all sorts of interesting stuff on there including a piece by me on giving radio interviews.
There's also more information on 'Women Aloud' the fantastic audio book of short stories released to celebrate Short Story Week. You can find my review of 'Women Aloud' on Bookersatz.
In further exciting news you can now see the wonderful 'Tears and Laughter and Happy Ever After' website here.
And you can see my brand new website here.
Sadly, during short story week, Radio 4 is intending to cut down on the number of broadcast short stories. You can also read about this and how you might want to comment on it on the National Short Story Week website.
As ever, a mix of good news and bad news, but here's hoping that in the end the good news will outweigh the bad!
