Foreign and Far Away: now available as an ebook

Foreign and Far AwayJust a quick post to announce that Writers Abroad‘s fourth anthology, Foreign and Far Away, is now available as an ebook from Amazon.

Every year, Writers Abroad publishes an anthology and donates all proceeds to a charity.

My contribution, Floating World, is a short personal essay about life in the Mekong Delta, and some of the challenges faced by those who live there. I’m very pleased to have a story in one of the Writers Abroad anthologies for the second year in a row.

So far, we’ve donated £500 to Book Aid International from sales of the paperback. This charity sends half a million books to schools, libraries, universities, hospitals, prisons, refugee camps and rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa and beyond. Please help raise more for the people who benefit from Book Aid International’s hard work. Thanks!
