Kaleidoscope, the fifth anthology published by the online, ex-pat writing community Writers Abroad is now available for purchase on Amazon (The link is for Amazon in the US, but you can order a copy of Kaleidoscope from your own country, wherever you live). The anthology is also available on Lulu.
I am pleased to announce that my short story City of Lights is included in this anthology. Hope you will enjoy. I certainly appreciated the opportunity to write about the theme of light. You can read the press release, right below, to find out more.
Kaleidoscope is a dazzling collection of flash fiction, short stories and poetry, written by expats (or former expats) around the world on the theme of light, as 2015 is the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies.
The stories and poems selected for Kaleidoscope evoke many varied interpretations of light: from a force that dispels evil or illuminates to one that can be destructive, from sunlight to firelight, or from the glow of an Arctic summer night to the brilliance of a Mediterranean afternoon.
This anthology is dedicated to two writers and members of Writers Abroad, Mary Davies and Jäny Graf, who both died in June 2015 during the planning of Kaleidoscope. Two pieces written by them are published in the anthology.
Author Chris Allen, who lives in Germany, has written the foreword. His writing has appeared in a wide range of publications. A finalist at Glimmer Train in 2011, Chris Allen has been nominated for Best of the Net and the Pushcart Prize twice.
All proceeds from the sale of Kaleidoscope will go to Room to Read, an international charity striving for a world in which all children can pursue a quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world.
Kaleidoscope contributors live in, and have written about, more than 30 countries across every continent. To find out more, and for a complete list of contributions, please go to the Writers Abroad website, www.writersabroad.com
