My Dad’s a Goldfish – And now for something different

cropped-goldfish-87-1254566814ncva1.jpgAnd by different, I mean totally unrelated to dementia or Goldfish. As followers of this blog know I have been posting rather infrequently over the last few months. One excuse reason has been that I’m in the process of converting the material from this blog into a proper memoir.

I have another excuse – I’ve been working on the publication of a short story collection – and it’s now up there  as an ebook on Amazon.

Here’s the back-of-the-book blurb:  Shot through with flashes of humour the stories here will entertain, amuse, and make you think. Mary Smith’s debut collection of short stories is a real treat, introducing the reader to a diverse range of characters in a wide range of locations. A donkey boy in Pakistan dreams of buying luxuries for his mother; a mouth artist in rural Scotland longs to leave the circus; a visually impaired man has a problem with his socks; and a woman tries to come to terms with a frightening gift – or curse.

At only 99p (just over a dollar if you are across the Pond) it’s so much cheaper than a cup of coffee – and you can re-fill re-read it as often as you like.

It’s already got a couple of reviews on Amazon UK, one of which, on LindasBookBag blog,  had me wearing a huge grin all day. You can read it here. There’s also a sample story on Marcia Meara’s blog.

The ebook is available now on Amazon.

I promise I’ll get back to the Goldfish and dementia in my next post but I’m so excited at getting my new book out – first fiction I’ve written for ages – I wanted to share with everyone.
