Sleeping Cat Books is bringing out their anthology Trip of a Lifetime next Saturday, 1 December. My short story, The Field of Reeds, is part of the collection. I haven't read the book yet but it seems the stories are quite varied and the work looks like a lot of fun. It was certainly a great experience working with the editor, Ms. Sarah Holroyd. The following is the promo for the book and the contest they're running for it. Hope you enjoy.
Take the Trip of a Lifetime!
And you can win a free travel mug! Announcing the release of Trip of a Lifetime: An Anthology.
What is your idea of the trip of a lifetime? Is it relaxing on a sandy Caribbean beach? Traveling through parts of Europe? Or do you prefer to stay closer to home and travel through your imagination? Sometimes the trip of a lifetime can be the one you never expected to take. And sometimes a trip becomes quite memorable for the wrong reasons.
In this collection of short stories, poetry, and non-fiction, you will find our contributors' ideas of the "trip of a lifetime." Perhaps you'll find your own ideas in these pages, or perhaps we'll spark the desire for you to go out and make your own memories!
To celebrate the release of this anthology in both paperback and ebook formats, Sleeping Cat Books will send a Trip of a Lifetime travel mug to one reader chosen at random (see website for image). The rules for entering this drawing are below.
