Stop Waiting For Friday – Book News!!!

Good morning everyone

I’m like a proud mother hen today, as my writing group, The Imagine, Write, Inspire Group, (IWI’ers), have just published their second book – a collection of short stories!

I have been given the wonderful honour of writing the introduction to the book.

The excitement over this collection is only mahoosive within the IWIers, as is the effort that each member has put into their own stories!

I’m so proud of each of them and it’s a joy watching them get more confident with their writing every day. They are all working away on their own manuscripts and I know that it won’t be long before more of these hit our bookshelves, so watch this space!

The theme of the collective is ‘Stop Waiting For Friday’ and the diverse, poignant, thought provoking and captivating stories that came from that are truly wonderful.

The writers involved in this collection are :-

I Hope You Dance by Lorraine McCormack
Inside The Mulberry Box by Denise Kenny
A Life Changing Day by Ciara Murphy
Through Rose Coloured Glasses by Adelle Kenny
Every Star In The Sky by Grainne Plaxton
