One World has Arrived!!
The One World anthology has arrived!!! This is me with my copy and a new haircut, which looks better in real life....hmmm... the hair cut not the book.
The whole thing seems amazing. A group of writers (click to see all of us) get together virtually, in the internet. They submit stories to each other, crit them, polish them up and make a collection. Then a couple volunteer to send the collection out to a publisher and VOILA! We have a book!!
Yeah Yeah Yeah!
BUY IT HERE! (though it looks not just yet- keep checking AND Amazon seems to forgot all the rest of the writers.... hmmm.. .....)
All proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders.
AND there are BIG names in there like Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (who knew some of the writers in the group and early on agreed graciously to submit a story), same goes for SA/PEN, Caine Prize winner Henrietta Rose-Innes- my story is right between theirs in the book- does that mean anything? Am I superstitious? (Likely answers: No, Yes) And we have the Super-Big Gun- Jumpha Lahiri.
We all knew writers would lead the way.
