Stinging Fly Summer Issue and my flights issues

I’m so happy to have another story in The Stinging Fly, I really feel an affinity with this Irish magazine – despite my Scottish roots. Ye Dancer, a story I first started writing almost three years ago, will be in their Summer Issue – guest edited by Sean O’Reilly. Happy days! I just wish I could justify the cost of the flights to Dublin to pop along to the launch night.

Unfortunately, I can’t and to be honest, would probably feel too bad about what would have had to have been a really flying visit anyway. Still, would have been a nice trip – especially as it’s my birthday month. Nevermind though, stories in print are always pretty awesome presents!
