I'm in Litro!

My story, The Explosion of Josiah Bounderby, is live at Litro today.  The February print edition, Issue 92, can be found in various London tube stations and other places around the country (and world!) - check the website for details.  I'm really happy with this - I'm in the same issue at Charles Bukowsi!  And the editor's introduction to the issue says my piece will 'knock you for six'.  Hurray!

I've spend the afternoon so far crouched on the living room floor with bits of paper, a pen, and a highlighter, trying to arrange plot-points of the novel, and listening to Elbow's Leaders of the Free World - not even the whole album, just the song, on repeat, for hours.  I'm not sure what this says about me, but I feel quite organised, even if I haven't gotten dressed by, what is it?  Three pm?  Isn't this the writer's life?

Yay! Thank you! There's a list on the website of places where it's available - and it's free, which of course always helps!
