LATEST WRITING SUCCESSES

Hello again and Seasons Greetings

I’m home from my trip to Thailand where I enjoyed some phenomenal diving… more of that in the New Year.

In the meantime, several writing successes occurred while I was away.

I wrote a couple of stories for Café Lit.

The first story: Sex and Socks and Rock 'n' Roll was published on the 2nd December


Patpong, Bankok

Red Hibiscus


The second story: Santaphobia was published on the 15th December

Frangipani

Pink Hibiscus

The Best of Café Lit 4 Anthology was launched. I was delighted that one of my stories was chosen for the anthology.

Finally, I won second place in the 2015 Alfie Dog Short Story Competition. Licking an Ant's Bottom was a story I thoroughly enjoyed writing and I was satisfied with the result, so it was a real rush when my belief in its merit was vindicated.

If you’d like to read the story for an extremely modest 39 pence, the link to Alfie Dog is HERE


All in all, it’s been a great end to 2015 and I'm all fired up for more writing projects in 2016.


Wishing you a happy and successful New Year!

    1. Thanks, Jo. Yes, my first Christmas in West Cork was lovely, if a little chilly after past Christmases in Fiji and Spain!

  8. Hi Susan, I tried to post this several times before Christmas but kept getting a notification that your email address didn't exist(?!). Hope this gets through now you're back.

    Congrats on being the runner-up in Alfie Dog Fiction's story comp. When I saw 'Licking an Ant's Bottom' on the shortlist I thought a) I must read that to find out what it's about, and b) I wonder who wrote it? I should have guessed it was you, knowing your interest in wildlife!

    Congrats on your other successes too - onwards and upwards!

  9. Hi Linda - I've no idea why you were getting that notification! Anyway, your post has got through now. Thank you for your kind comments.
    I was delighted when I saw that the Alfie Dog winner was someone I knew and I downloaded your story. I thought it was excellent.
