BYT: Fiction Book of the Year

The Art of Contraception = Fiction Book of the Year

winnerYes, it is true folks. The lovely people at Welsh Icons decided my debut collection of short stories deserved to be Fiction Book of the Year in their Welsh Icons Awards 2010. Which was a pretty good way to end the year.
You can also read my prose poem 'Postcard to Seattle' in the current issue (3) of Leaf Writers Magazine. It was highly commended in their Travel Writing Competition.
In other news, Bugged is now available as a Kindle Book priced at just £3.39 so you'd be daft not to snap it up. There'll be another top reason to have a Kindle from springtime, when my novella 'Arrivals' will be available to buy as a Kindle Single, a few months later than originally planned, but worth the wait I reckon :) Watch this space for a party announcement!
Love HurtsI hope you've had a lovely festive season. I have read a huge pile of books and written a new short story. This year I'm hoping to get a one woman touring spoken word show together and some fun poetry releases. Talking of poetry, I have a poem in the edible poetry journal Poetry Digest. It will feature on free cakes at the launch in London this Sunday 16 January. For you none FB types this takes place at The Bell, 50 Middlesex Street, London E1 7EX between 4 and 6pm. Come along and eat some lovely poems nom nom nom.
I am also teaching a poetry workshop for Academi next month. Love Poetry for the 21st Century with Susie Wildtakes place at Academi's Glyn Jones Centre in Cardiff Bay on Tuesday 8 Feb between 7 and 9pm. The workshop is free but you need to email Academi to be on the list: post@academi.org
I think that is all I have to tell you today... apart from Happy New Year!
