Some of our readers may have noticed a dearth of material appearing on this blog over the last few months. There has been a change, a mini-revolution, I would not go so far as to say a rebellion, but a take-over.
The novelists have won. That does not mean that the short story writers have been beaten into submission, rather the group has developed into a distinctive novelist group and the short story writers have not one but two other groups. However, we lucky beings retain the name of Scribes and the blog. Having said that, as keeper of the blog, I would be happy to accept submissions from the short story groups, otherwise, our blog may be somewhat lacking in original work. The offer is there, take me up on it, please.
Other news – the novelists’ group has grown and we have two new lady members and one new gentleman. One of our group, Angela Petch has a contract from Endeavour Press to publish her books, Now and Then in Tuscany and Tuscan Roots. Angela has also been very busy and successful with her short stories. She is now a doyenne of short stories in Prima and People’s Friend. Look out for her story in the October issue of People’s Friend.
Patricia will be publishing her book of naughty limericks in time for Christmas. A definite stocking filler and there will be more about that anon.
