The Bed Book of Short Stories

Modjaji Books is an independent publisher in South Africa who publishes writing from women in Southern Africa. They have been very successful despite their small size. They have won awards for their poetry books, and their novel, Whiplash, was shortlisted for last year's Sunday Times Fiction award.

I was honoured to be asked to help compile a collection of short stories around the theme of bed -and now the book is ready for pre-orders! It has a fantastic collection of writers including flash fiction star Liesl Jobson; author of the hilarious book Exhibit A, Sarah Lotz; and our new up and coming short story writer Gothataone Moeng, among many other fabulous, talented writers. See the list here.

Modjaji Books is one of the publishers attending this year's London Book Fair which is having a South African focus. In celebration of this upcoming event, they are having a sale on their new titles, including the Bed Book.
Support a very special publisher.

Yeah for Modjaji!!

Oooh, great! Can we get a review copy for The Short Review? Maybe they could send me a copy when they come to London? I can't review it because I know you (we have a policy about that) but will find a reviewer who can!

Congratulations! It's got to be a lot of work compiling the stories. I hope it gets lots of notice at the London Fair.
