I’m thrilled that my short story, A Taste of Paradise, has been published in the No Bindings Magazine and podcast in Bristol. Come along to a launch event (more details below) or listen to the Ujima Radio Babbers Show on Monday 9th July!
Easy reading with large print!
Did you know 10% of us are dyslexic? I believe everyone deserves a paperback that’s easy to read, so I’m thrilled to have published a new large print dyslexia-friendly version of crime thriller Up In Smoke. There are traditional paperback and e-book editions as well (all links I’ve given are for Amazon UK, but the book is also available on other Amazon sites and on iBooks, Kobo etc). My Trail series of crime thrillers and an earlier book, After The Interview, are already on sale in a choice of formats – find out more here.
Do you have an old copy of Up In Smoke?
If you have an old copy of Up In Smoke – with a cover decorated with dollar signs – let me know, and I’ll replace it with a new one. I’ve made a few tweaks to the book, and I’d like you to have the most up to date version – with artist Paul Humphreys’ brilliant new book cover, above. Just email me at aaabbott[at]aaabbott.co.uk. I’ll send new e-books anywhere in the world and swap paperbacks in the UK (to send back your paperback, email me for my address, please. I’ll send you a new book, signed, as soon as I receive yours).
Do you like meeting writers? I love meeting readers, and I’ll keep you posted about live readings of my fiction both on this page and in my newsletter (sign up here and get a free e-book). Here’s what’s coming next:
Bristol publisher No Bindings is publishing my tale, “A Taste of Paradise” in their latest magazine and Ujima Radio podcast series. I’ll be heading to the launch evening at Bristol Central Library on 23rd May (with jazz music, readings and a panel discussion) and reading my short story at Henbury Library on 6th June. It would be lovely to see you! Both celebrations are free. The Henbury event, from 2 to 4pm, also features a free repair café – so bring your broken-down toasters etc and our nimbled-fingered friends might make them as good as new for you!
That brilliant beer haven, The Gunmakers Arms in central Birmingham, is hosting a Summer Fire fiction night on Monday 9th July, from 7 to 9pm. I’ll be reading a story, and it would be great to see you there! Book FREE tickets here.
