Book Launch

My class is finally launching the print version of our anthology this Thursday. everybody is invited:

On the night there will be wine (lots of that), readings (plenty – everyone is reading a 2 minute section from their piece in the collection), finger food (some of that), and Paul Murray! (there can only be one)

Everything will be going down in the Printing House in Trinity College, which is very good at hiding in plain sight so here is a map:

And if you just can’t wait until Thursday our ebook is available on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk for the very reasonable price tag of $4.91. My short story, “Mrs. Culann’s Dog”, is the first in this collection therefore the first half of it is free as part of amazon’s first chapter samples deal, so please give it a go.

Public Reading at Cúirt

So it’s been awhile since I posted (I know, I know, don’t look at me like that). As cheeky as it might be to not post for ages and then do some self-promo here we are, at this intersection of business and cheekiness.

My class is launching their anthology at the Town Hall bar in Galway tomorrow evening (Sat 28th April) at 5pm. I will be reading from my short story “Mrs Culann’s Dog.” And to make up for the aforementioned cheekiness there will be free wine on the night! How about that now? Everybody is welcome to attend, we have plenty of wine and readings from a great variety of writing styles planned. Nuala Ní Chonchúir will be launching A Thoroughly Good Blue.

Next week I will start posting again about other stuff – mainly writing and reading as usual – and hopefully I’ll have a good explanation for my absence. Ta ta for now!
