There is so much going on in the literary world that I thought I’d do my 10 notables list today:
1) Julie Innis’s book, Three Squares a Day with Occasional Torture is available from Foxhead Books. Also the talented Christopher Allen writes a stunning review at his fantastic blog, I must be off! Three Squares a Day with Occasional Torture by Julie Innis, a book review by Christopher Allen. And if that isn’t enough, head on over to THE HAPPY KILLJOY – More Thoughts on “Three Squares”.
2) Then, while you are visiting Foxhead Books, check out Sheldon Compton’s The Same Terrible Storm. Sheldon recently had a book launch with publisher Stephen Marlowe, and blogs about it here: The Book Launch and Baked Beans
3) Gill Hoffs new book Wild is out! This collection is sure to be amazing! And read what Marcus Speh says in his review: Wild by Gill Hoffs (Paperback)
4) While there, check out Vestal Aversion by Matt Potter (Paperback)!!! 31 stories in all, bound to make you double over with laughter! Matt is currently on a world tour and I can’t wait to meet him at the KGB event next Saturday, June 23.
