Writ­ers con­tinue with their train of thought

Group hop­ing for suc­cess to ri­val their award-win­ning first an­thol­ogy

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

The Amer­sham-based au­thors from the group, Just Write, will launch ‘De­layed Re­ac­tion’ to­day, Thurs­day, Novem­ber 19 in Cafe Africa, Amer­sham.

One of the writ­ers, Liz Losty, said: “Our first book – Spilling the Beans – won the Writ­ing Mag­a­zine 2014 award for Best An­thol­ogy and our suc­cess­ful run of sales en­abled us to do­nate £1,000 to the Royal Mars­den Can­cer Char­ity.

“Spurred on by this suc­cess we de­cided to release a sec­ond book of short sto­ries – but with a dif­fer­ent set of char­ac­ters and cir­cum­stances, the only thing they have in com­mon is that they are all trapped on a de­layed train – so De­layed Re­ac­tion was born.”

As with the group’s first book, Spilling the Beans, there are 10 sto­ries that are com­plete and stand alone.

How­ever when the sto­ries are read as part of the col­lec­tion, the reader dis­cov­ers more about each of the char­ac­ters, their lives and their com­plex lay­ers. For each of them this will be a life chang­ing jour­ney but for very dif­fer­ent rea­sons. Sales of the new book, De­layed Re­ac­tion, will also raise money for the Royal Mars­den Can­cer Char­ity.
