For the last few months I have been involved in Nelson's STEM Writing Group - STEM standing for Second Tuesday of Every Month (which has, in fact, extended now to the second and fourth Tuesday of Every Month (SFTEM???)). This Wednesday at the Honest Lawyer Country Pub we will be launching our second Lunch Books collection of writings from the group. Each book is designed to introduce or feature four different writers from the previous collection who are a part of the group, and I was fortunate enough to be allowed to contribute four of my stories to this collection. The collection has a wide range of topics, from exploring the worlds of different cultures, to war-time conflicts, from private investigator mysteries, to exploring space and time. It is bound to be a collection that all readers will find something enjoyable in.
We have a fabulous woman who runs the group, but because she has a very busy schedule and couldn't commit full-time to the collating and production this time around, I offered my services and helped to edit and get it ready before sending it to the printers. One of the writers also contributed her own painting for the cover. And keeping with all things local, it was printed by Copy Press who reside in Tahunanui and do many publications.
All are welcome to the event which starts at 5:30 and will feature a special guest who has come up from Christchurch to open the launch for us (so secret that not even I know who it is!!).
5.30, Wednesday November 23rd The Honest Lawyer Country Pub, end of Songer Street, Monaco (Nelson, New Zealand)
