Short story to be published in new book by O'Brien's Press

Evening all, One of my short stories (a very, very short story) has been chosen, via a competition on RTE Radio 1's Book Show, to be published in a new book of very, very short stories by O'Brien's Press. The story is about 180 words (see what I mean), is called Nasturtiums and is about loss and learning how to let go. It's the first short story I've finished in the past year, as I've been slogging my way through the last few chapters of the blinking novel, so I'm very happy that's it been included. A number of the chosen stories (maybe mine, maybe not) will be featured in tomorrow night's live broadcast of the Book Show of RTE Radio, which is coming live from the book launch at Twisted Peppers in Dublin from 7.30pm to 8.30pm. The book itself is a limited edition, so I'm not sure how you, or indeed me, might go about getting a copy. But when I know, you'll know.

  1. Okay, if anyone is interested in buying that book of really short stories then info on how to do that is below... Knock yourself out. But, fair warning, it doesn't seem to be for a charity, nor is anyone getting any sort of royalty cheque out of it. So, buy it if your into it, but in the knowledge that you're not saving the world.
