Edinburgh Review

Posted by sallyhinchcliffe on November 26, 2012

Edinburgh Review Issue 136I’m delighted to announce that the next issue of the Edinburgh Review will include a short story by me: Abigail’s Father (nothing to do with Abigail’s Party …)

It’s the first short story I’ve worked on for some time; I enjoyed the change of pace (and the ability to get something completed!) I’m very grateful to the Review for accepting it and I look forward to seeing the new issue, entitled No Shouting Out, as it looks like it has some great writers in it – I shall be in good company.

I’ll also be attending the launch at Waterstones on Princes St at 6:30 pm on Thursday 29th November. Among others, Thomas Legendre will be reading, a nice coincidence as the last time I was doing anything literary in Edinburgh it was in an event with him. Truly, Scotland is a very small world indeed.

New short story coming soon

Posted by sallyhinchcliffe on May 10, 2010

A brand new short story – All in Foreign – will be coming out at the end of May in Dumfries’s newest publication, the Fankle.

I should confess that I’m the editor, so it’s not all that surprising that I’m in it (but all of the pieces were chosen strictly on the basis of merit of course!). It’s a brand new venture and very exciting – you can read more about it on the Fankle website.

Copies will be available by post, watch this space as I’m still working out how to get PayPal working on the site

I will be signing copies at the Dumfries branch of Waterstones on February 14th – yes, Valentine’s day. More details to follow. Meanwhile you can read about this and many other exciting literary events on Bookarazzi’s latest Lit Bits

Paperback and Book at Bedtime

Posted by sallyhinchcliffe on September 4, 2008

Here’s a sneak preview of the new paperback cover:

New paperback cover design

And if you peer closely, you’ll see why I’m so excited. Yes, Out of a Clear Sky is going to be Radio ‘s Book at Bedtime from September 22nd. And continuing on the radio theme, there’s a nice quote from the Radio 5 Book of the Month programme I did back in May

I’ll put up links to buy it – all of you who haven’t shelled out for the hardback yet, that is – when Amazon have got the page sorted out. At the moment they’re claiming the paperback is by some imposter called Sarah Hinchcliffe…

Leave no Tern Unstoned

Posted by sallyhinchcliffe on May 15, 2008

Tuesday lunchtime saw me in a basement in the bowels of Heffers bookshop in Cambridge, busy defacing my own books. Sorry, signing them. As these were for the serious collectors, I was ‘signing, lining and dating’ them – writing a line from the book, as well as my signature and a date. And there were a lot of them – one collector had ordered six. I hope he (and somehow I think it was a he) has a glance at the text before he puts it away in a darkened vault, or eBay, or wherever they are destined to end up. Fortunately, Richard from Heffers had chosen a variety of lines – including ‘leave no tern unstoned’, and ‘birds, the feathered kind’ (but not ‘look at the tits on that!’ thank God) as well as the opening sentence – so I had a little variety. And he fed me a lovely sandwich lunch, introduced me to two charming ladies from his book group and sent me off with a bottle of wine, so I’m not complaining. It was an interesting glimpse into the world of the serious book collector. A bit like the world of bird watching, perhaps?

Well, actually it wasn’t too difficult as Flighty found these at the bookshop he worked in, having ordered them and placed them there himself. But it’s nice to see it facing out on the shelves:

And even nicer to see it in the window:

Thanks Flightbuff! (I think he chose the other book in the window as well, don’t you?)

Well, as of today, my book is out in the UK. Indications from friends are that Amazon started sending it out a little early, but this is the official publication date. Unfortunately, it’s also the week I chose to move up to Scotland and I am without email or even a phone line, and miles from the nearest bookshop.

I haven’t yet seen any copies of OUT OF A CLEAR SKY on the shelves of a bookshop yet – any sightings gratefully received…
