I'm very proud to announce that the Oslo Writers' League (formerly the Oslo International Writers' Group) will publish its second anthology this month. All the Ways Home is a multi-genre collection of pieces by members of our group. Short stories, essays, and poetry on two themes especially pertinent to expat life: Crossroads and Identity. Once again, all profits from sales of the book in print or digital form go to Utdanningshjelpen , a Norwegian volunteer organization that assists students in developing countries complete their secondary education through scholarship programs.
My nonfiction piece, Sinober , is included in the anthology, but that's not the only reason I'm excited about this book. The tenacious Zoë Harris , Editorial Director of Grimbold Books--the publisher--asked me to act as Poetry Editor for the collection. That was a treat! Also, my best friend, Cindy Lackey , was commissioned to do the cover art for the book. It was a rare pleasure to witness the inner workings of an artist's mind, and I love the way her concept turned out.
Finally, most exciting of all, we're doing another launch event! ( Details on Facebook ) And you're invited!
