Updates from the North

It has been a while since I posted anything, but now there is much to say.

As Editor in Chief of Nordland Publishing, I have the honour of being involved in some stellar projects. In addition, I am a member of a local writing group in Oslo (the Oslo Writer's League) and we have a new book being launched.

So, the first news is the announcement of my story, "Night Folk" which is appearing in Some Shape of Beauty, the fourth release from the OWLs. This book, as are all the OWL publications, is a great vehicle for enabling new authors to get their name in print. The quality of the writing is very high, and as there are some 200 members in the group, you can imagine that the selection process has to be, well, selective!

The book is launched on November 10th, and I will be there to help promote and generally give it a good sendoff. All proceeds from the book go to the charity Redd Barna (Save the Children) so it is both a good book and a worthy cause.

The launch will take place at Grunnerl√łka library, a lovely old building, with a great presence.
