We Need Your Help - New Short Story From Benjamin Myers

Why?

Last week Gracie Cooper from Little Toller contacted me about distribution, bookshop closures and sales falling off a cliff. So we put our heads together and came up with a plan. I asked Ben Myers if he would let us publish a short story.

Of course he said Yes, because he's a star. You can buy it here:

And you'll be helping Little Toller and Bluemoose Books continue to find, nurture and develop great new writers and stories.

Thank you

Kevin, Hetha, Lin, Leonora, Annie.

This is the the third short listing Ronan has had since we published his debut twelve months ago, launching Leonard and Hungry Paul at Hodges Figgis, Dublin on March 20th 2019.

 

Winners will be announced at The British Book Awards, #Nibbies as they are called, on Monday 29th June at The Grosvenor Hotel in London. The last time I was corralled into a suit, I wandered around the awards ceremony in Dublin with the security tag still attached to my trousers. It was an anxious time and I will try to do better in June.
