We are looking for writers to work with us on our shorties project.
Shorties are easy reads - whimsical little extracts from the classics you loved as a child, never had the time to read , snippets of engaging reads from newly published fiction - try before you buy on kindle or bookstores.
What makes shorties different is that they are printed pocketbooks - to be made available across travel networks in Bexley South East London as a trial . The idea is to scale up to other London Boroughs if successful as an alternative to the Metro, Evening Standard and the Stylist for fiction lovers.
Ad's are minimal.
Writer contributions for recent publications are a maximum of 1500 per piece - fiction only.
We would love to work with you.
Please respond to E Ikerionwu (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details.
All the best,
Please feel free to share this round your networks if this is not for you.

Nice web! (Yours).
Great Idea! I shall participate as proper so to do. How do you spell "appropriate"?
LOL! Yes! Please do!
I adore The Fortune Hunter. Its one of the very, very few books I have read more than once just for the clever dialog and great characters.
The only romance books I think worth reading are by Georgette Heyer and I generally read historical detective books. It's only at Christmas that I read books without murder and mayhem. I picked up the Mistletoe Test (primarily based on our shared last name) and quite enjoyed it. Enough that I purchased the Fortune Hunter. What a great read. In terms of wit and characters it's equal to any Heyer book, in terms of plot its right up there with Venetia.
I know the book is the second in a series but I think it has far more impact if its read as a stand alone as I did.
I think that Georgette Heyer is a one of a kind author but I now have the Fortune Hunter sitting along side Frederica, Faro's Daughter, Venetia and the Grand Sophy on my bookshelf.
Well done! and keep writing.
Wendy, you just made my day. Thank you so much for your lovely comment. To share a shelf with the Grand Georgette is an honor indeed. I do hope we turn out to be cousins of some sort. LOL!
I'm delighted that you enjoyed The Fortune Hunter. It's prequel, Falling for Chloe, is much "fluffier" but you might enjoy the Heyer references. I hid several Georgette Heyer Easter Eggs in that one. ;)
One day I may produce a sequel to The Mistletoe Test, since I didn't quite resolve the situation with Felicity and Gavin ... that's one of my "back burner books." But I am possibly the world's slowest writer, easily distracted by other all-consuming projects, so that kiss under the mistletoe may be as far as they get. I rather hope not, since I'm fond of them and would like to give them a happy ending!
Have you read any of Georgette Heyer's mysteries? They're not quite as good as her romances, or at least that's the general consensus, but I like them.
Thanks again, and happy reading!
Your possible cousin Diane
