Get'm Young, my new collection of stories, just made the long list for the inaugural 2022 Republic of Consciousness Prize, a very fancy new prize only for small literary presses in the US and Canada. (I'm so thrilled!) The prize been awarding adventuresome small presses (and books) in the UK since 2017, but now they have come to North America.
If you have time to join, please put this Zoom event and a reminder on your calendar:

I'd love to see you there and feel friends cheering And Other Stories, Get'em Young and me.
I'll be reading from Get'em and talking about the book with all of the five judges, my genius editor Jeremy Davies and the brilliant authors and translators of the nine books on the long list.
The shortlist will be announced sometime after this event. Crossing fingers for Get'em Young!
See you there!
