Well, here it is. At long last, the first Forgotten Scotland mini-read entitled, 'Sheep and Other Stories'.
Now available on Amazon for the princely sum of 79p.
I've re-worked the title story 'Sheep' slightly since it first appeared in the Scottish Book Trust New Writer showcase anthology. this is the problem with dreams (no, it's deliberate that there's no capitalisation-believe me, you'll find out why) has never been submitted or read anywhere else (other than in my head, over a dining room table) and Tales From The Peninsula is a modified version of a story I had published, some time ago now, in New Writing Dundee anthology.
I hope you like them. In my view, there's not nearly enough published works on the subject of sheep (however loosely), particularly when you consider their prominent role in Scottish history- and the multi-layered underworld of knitwear.
There's another Forgotten Scotland mini-read (2) coming hot on its heels, in September. Set in the remote places far from Edinburgh and Glasgow in Pre-Referendum Scotland, the Forgotten Scotland mini-read series focuses on the lost and small voices at the fringes of modern day Scotland; the sheep rustler searching for identity under the motionless wind turbines; the list-making dreamer seeking the perfect revenge and the teenager finding her calling in a faded former seaside resort.
People make guesses as to the locations of some of the stories. They are always bits of lots of places, like a road map of a subjective mind, but these three, roughly, you could stick a pin around highlands, Tayside and a number of unspecified sea-facing locations in Argyll.
