And more importantly, it’s positive!

We have some super exciting news! We are proud to announce that The Green Press has published it’s latest novel, First Aid Kit Girl by first-time author, Lynsey Rose. You can buy it here, and it will be on Amazon very shortly.
The book is a black comedy, a story about oppression, hope and self-harm. Read Lynsey’s Next big thing interview to find out more about what the novel is about. You can also like First Aid Kit Girl on Facebook.
£70,000 was needed to fund renovations and the first year of operation to help save Kensal Green Library, and at the time of writing, £73,856 has been pledged, including a £1,000 donation from Willesden Green Writers’ Group, which will now get its name on the wall of the library.
The Green Press is populated with writers from this very talented group, so we’re very proud to have helped played a part in saving the library, and look forward to holding events there in the future!
Clare Sandling‘s story, Smirnoff Vodka – One Litre, was selected for reading at the Liar’s League this week. Which, along with an event at Tales of The Decongested, makes it the third time in 2009 for this Green Press writer to have her work read aloud for London audiences.
So this week’s podcast is a recording of Clare reading her story How To Win At Scrabble And Life, live at Willesden Green. Download, listen, and let us know what you thought of Clare’s story.
I’m too scared of losing a finger in the machines that make our books, so I can’t tell you what the press sounds like. But if you want to know what our authors sound like, that’s a different story. Specifically, a story called Marula Beer, read here by author Andrew Mayne, in the first of our series of podcasts.
Let us know what you think, as we’ll be making more audio content available soon.
