On April 2nd, Fight Like A Girl launches in Bristol. This anthology contains fifteen stories with a focus on female fighters. One of the interesting aspects of this project is that the authors, publishers, editors and artists are all women. My story, The Coyote, focuses on factional conflict within the city of Brighton, where I lived for 4 years.
I was looking forward to being at the launch – to catching up with friends and watching the demonstrations. Yet, in the past 6 months, we’ve bought a house, my day-job has moved around my shift hours, we got married, went on honeymoon, my husband moved jobs, we adopted cats, and I had to replace my car. In energy levels, time allowances and financial funds; we are short.
And therefore, I am sad to say that I will not be attending the anthology’s launch party.
As I won’t be attending a convention this year, this launch was something I’d hoped to soften that blow – a chance to talk writing with friends and share the joy of publication. However, my family and well-being comes first.
This week is your last chance to attend the party!
All the details of the launch party can be found in my previous post. In short, there will be a weapons demonstration, swordplay, discussions about the role of women, readings from the anthology and a buffet! I’d highly recommend it, if you’re in the area.
