So this year the novels that gripped my heart in their fist were Anne Tyler's Digging to America, Mark Haddon's A Spot of Bother and How to Talk to a Widower by Jonathan Tropper.
As well promoting the More Tonto Short Stories anthology at Durham Lit Festival I've been redrafting a novel... writing lots of stories and thinking through ideas for my next novel... My most recent short story Defying Gravity is being featured in this December issue of Laura Hird's website.
I'm hoping 2008 will be the year that my novel gets published and so I get to spend the year touring bookshops and shamelessly self promoting... fingers crossed!
Anyone who wants to come along and show some support then please come to The Blue Room in Newcastle on 2nd March 2008 which I'll be reading at - very exciting stuff...
Oh and there's about five half written plays to finish and that film script in the corner that I keep ignoring - still...
Rosalind Wyllie's short stories are featured in Tonto Short Stories, More Tonto Short Stories and Tonto Christmas Short Stories. During December you can get a free copy of More Tonto Short Stories and a free download of Tonto Christmas Stories - see more details here.
