Last year my wonderful creative writing students wrote a collection of short stories for Christmas. (See the photos of the launch above.). This year we are doing the same thing.
Our booklet is a mixture of fairy tales, spooky stories and adult contemporary fiction, written by authors ranging from eight to seventy-one years old!
Last Christmas the response to our booklet was overwhelming. The book launch was packed out (not enough drinks to go around) and the booklets were a complete sell out – I had to ration out the numbers of books I could sell to each family unit! This year, however, we shall have plenty; we are printing 300 copies and they shall be on sale in Skerries Book shop from mid December.
I am really looking forward to the launch, which takes place at 6pm on Friday 11th December in Skerries Mills. There will be nibbles, drinks and hopefully a few readings. It will also be a unique opportunity to get booklets signed by the authors.
Everyone is welcome – family, friends, Grannies, Uncles and Aunts!
Hope to see you there!
