I’m delighted to say that I’ve been chosen as the winner in the Fiction category of the Big Book of Hope Ebook with my story Flashes of Entropy and Hope. This story was created out of a series of interrelated flashes I have written for a project in progress Flashes of Sadness and Light.
My fellow winners are for non-fiction: Orla Coffey with Flashlight and for poetry Fr. David Keating with Now is All I Have. Beginnings by David Fairclough is the highly commended fiction entry and will also be included in the book.
Congrats to fellow winners and also to the shortlistees. The ebook is in aid of The Hope Foundation’s work with the street children of Kolcatha (Calcutta) and will be launched by the end of April. It will include work from authors including Brian Keenan, Ivy Bannister, Kate Kerrigan, Monica McInerney, Sarah Webb, Sinead Moriarty, Noelle Harrison, Bill Cullen, Jim Power, Liz McManus, Senator Ivana Bacik, Dragon’s Den’s Norah Casey and many more.
