A Cool Review for Shine in the Guardian

Shine by Candy Gourlay
'A precious and important novel that also explores exile from neighbours, family and country. The book is about reinvention and the faces we present to the world, whether it be in person, on a postcard or on the internet, all wrapped up in an exciting and perfectly paced story with a disturbing and dramatic climax.'
Philip Ardagh, The Guardian

IT'S FOR REAL! Tall Story arrives in the post

It came in the post today!

It's for real! Candy holding her freshly pressed book

Dontcha just love the silver embossed text?

And look! I'm featured on Tracy's terrific Tall Tales and Short Stories blog!

I'm so happy I could give away a copy of my book!

In fact ... why not?

The Tall Story book trailer is going to be finished within the next few days and I'm trying to get a whole bunch of my blogging friends (and relatives) to post it at the same time - our very own WORLD PREMIERE!


The idea is we all post the trailer on our blogs and facebook/or other profiles at the same time! Simple!

In abject gratitude, I am offering world premiere people an advance viewing of the trailer on a password protected site - AND a chance to win a freshly minted copy of TALL STORY before it's in the shops!

If you would like to join us - and you don't have to live in England to join - please send me an email on mumatwork AT blueyonder.co.uk with the subject header 'World Premiere'!


Oh someone pinch me.

But not too hard.
