Right now I'm working on my first collection of short fiction - check out the new book! tab for more info. Download the Gimbal story app to listen to In Zero Gravity, one of the stories from the book (available in itunes shop - details below). I'm now in the home stretch, and the book will be coming out with Comma Press this autumn!
The beautiful Tramlines short story project that had me writing my way around Zagreb's tram network last year has now grown into a full blown app: Gimbal - a literary navigator that takes you through cities around the world by text, image and sound. Transfiction called it 'beautifully intuitive', and I say this is the ideal treat for fiction lovers and map enthusiasts alike.
Read about our launch at the London Book Fair, and then get yourself over to the itunes store to play with it!
To unlock a new story by the stellar David Constantine (recent winner of the Frank O'Connor Award - yes, I really do mean stellar!), just tweet @commapress or @gimballing [your greeting/philosophy/nugget here] #gimbal , or share the post on facebook. Christmas gift in words.
I had the great honour of reading with one of my literary favorites in October at the Manchester Literature Festival. Sara Maitland launched her new collection of stories, Moss Witch, and I valiantly tried to maintain focus onstage when all I really wanted was to drop all pretense of performance and listen to her talk. If you missed it, you can watch on youtube, here. OH, she's good.
