A taste of A Wild and Precious Life

Dear supporters,

To those of you who have supported our recovery project: a HUGE thank you. We have had such a great response so far and the pledges are coming in daily. We have raised 15% of our funds in the first couple of weeks, which is good going. And is only possible because of all your support.

We have a way to go yet, so please spread the word if you haven't already. It's amazing how small pledges - a book here or there - add up. We are also planning to apply for funds from the Arts Council again, so we'll see how that pans out.

In the meantime, one of our favourite stories to feature in A Wild and Precious Life, 'Telling Blue', by Astra Bloom, was published by For Books' Sake 'Weekend Read' today http://forbookssake.net/weekendread/telling-blue/. It's a beautiful told tender tale about enduring love in the face of trauma. Astra is a very talented writer. If you like it, please forward the link. It's only going to be up for a week. 

A wonderful taste of what's to come from the anthology.

Again, thank you and have a lovely weekend.

Lily and Zoe
