Today I received the exciting news that the anthology ‘The Good Life in Galicia 2018’ has been published. Whoo hoo! It has been a long wait from the closing date for submissions on 1st August, for me a participant, to publication, but an exciting journey all the same. Leading up to the deadline the ideas, the drafts, the edits, the nerves and finally submission. After the deadline date, further edits by a professional editor, accepting or not the advised edits, submitting photos to accompany my pieces and the wait.
The anthology contains my piece of fiction titled ‘Here be Dragons’ a children’s story about a treasure hunt and the return of a long lost family member. My second piece is non-fiction ‘Roof, Table, Door, possible Turner prize winner?’ and tells the story of how John and I recycled timbers, we found on a bonfire, and created useful objects.
The stories, poems and non-fiction pieces are about Galicia, written by people who live here or who have visited.
The editor has published the anthology on both Smashwords and Amazon and therefore widely available, so there is no excuse not to buy this excellent book about this little known part of Spain. Take a look and see what you think of our corner of the world and perhaps this year you will be inspired to visit or live here and post an entry for this years collection. Don’t forget the deadline is the 1st August.
