Launching Sunday 10.10.2010 – Chinese Whisperings

Filed under: published works — Annie Evett @ 7:41 am

Thank you so much to everyone who has continued to support and read my work – both here and on my fiction site Annies Musings

No doubt you will realise I have been involved with a global literary project called Chinese Whisperings over the last six months. I have been involved with an incredible bunch of talented writers, patient and experienced editors and feel so blessed to have been included in this anthology.

I am so excited that I’m allowed to  unveil the cover art by Lucas Clevenger for the two books here, side-by-side:

Chinese Whisperings are proud to present these two volumes for purchase starting 10 October 2010 (that’s Sunday) and invite you to read an incredible journey of stories interwoven together like never before.
Both books have the same beginning but from there, one decision made by a woman to either retrieve or abandon her suitcase takes the reader by the hand on a wild journey through countless lives.

The Chinese Whisperings website has 750-word excerpts available for all of the stories – so please go and read them – it will make your mouth water and your imagination yearn to read more.

My  story, “Kanyasulkam” is featured in The Yin Book and you can read a taster (750 words) here.

Here are the official blurbs and author lists for each volume:
