Bamboccioni Books Audio

For those of you who haven't yet found your way over there - and how could you not have done? -  you can listen to me reading an extract of my story, Keeping Mum, over on the Bamboccioni Books website. There is also a little mini interview with me. As much as it's always excruciating to hear my voice on a recording, I'd love it if you popped over to Bamboccioni and took a look around.

Keeping Mum appeared in Bamboccioni's inaugral anthology, Beyond the Horizon: Short stories of discovery. Derek Thompson has also recorded an extract, and over the next few weeks the other authors will be doing the same. If you like what you hear then you can buy the book in paperback, or you can wait until the e-book comes out later this year if you are better with technology than I am!

Bamboccioni Books are a new, independent publishers who welcome submissions of books by unpublished authors. They are especially willing to look at novels that might not fit into the specific genres required by larger publishing houses. If you think you have something that might interest them, then why not get in touch?

  1. Hi, Chloe, do you feel differently about yourself as a writer now that you've been interviewed and recorded?

    1. Not because I've been recorded! But being commissioned to write for this anthology was really different from what I'd done before and has definitely made my cover letters feel more professional. Somebody actually seeking you out to write something always looks/feels good!

  2. I hate to hear my recorded voice too, but you're braver than me and I thought your reading was good!

    1. Thank-you very much. I dont' mind reading live (though I've only done it at one event), but somehow recording is much worse isn't it?

  3. I would rather have needles stuck in my eyes than do a live reading!
