Updates and Introductions: Part 5

Things are still chugging along behind the scenes. We are knee deep in edits and proofreading, and very close now to finalizing the line up, with just one story to come in, and a few left to read/confirm. It looks like there will be over 30 stories included in the anthology which makes it a real bargain!

In just a few short weeks now, we’re hoping to have the digital version available. It’s endlessly exciting thinking about that. I can’t believe that time is passing so quickly – April will be here in no time, and you’ll all be able to read the wonderful stories we’ve selected.

Speaking of stories, I’d like to introduce you to two more of our authors. It’s great we have so many fabulous female writers on board!

Kate Mahony has an MA in Creative Writing from Bill Manhire’s course at Victoria University. Her short fiction has been published in Best New Zealand Fiction Vol. 6, Turbine, Her magazine and the online International Literary Quarterly, Issue 14. Disoriented was previously published in Takahe 71. She teaches classes in short story writing at the Adult Community Education Centre at Wellington High School.

Helen Lowe is an award-winning novelist, broadcaster and poet. Her latest novel, The Heir of Night, the first in The Wall of Night quartet, is newly published in the USA, the UK, Australia and NZ, with recent foreign rights sales into the Netherlands and France. Helen’s first novel, Thornspell, was published by Knopf in 2008 to critical praise from Kirkus and Booklist, amongst others, and won the Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best Novel: Young Adult in 2009.
