It's TRUE!!!!! Everyone at Salt Publishing is MAD.

SEND IN THE MEN IN WHITE COATS....
Finally, I can reveal the exclusive news that everyone at Salt Publishing is totally mad. I have sent the truck to pick them up, but check out THIS TOUCHY-FEELY EXPERIENCE before the truck gets there and carts them all off to the Asylum for the Utterly Bewildered. SEND IN THE NICE NEW UNIFORMS..
Short Circuit is back from the printers... YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!
And I bet you don't get THAT SORT OF THING from ordinary publishers. Oh no.
Bring back the waxed moustache, the corset and the hyper-gusset. And stop having FUN. This is a TEXT BOOK. It is NOT FUNNY. And certainly NOT TO BE ENJOYED. Writing short fiction is a dry, serious, painful passtime. You do NOT enjoy learning to write short stories. STOP NOW.

(If you insist on finding out more, you could click on THIS LINK to the publisher's SHORT CIRCUIT webpage, but you'll have to put up with a gigiantic and irrelevant photo of the Editor.)

Yipee - can't wait to read it. Yes, they are all mad but don't they look HAPPY in their madness!?

Marvellous, Vanessa - even made me laugh & shout with glee on your/Salt's behalf (and I've got the flamin' 'flu!). Good luck to all & most of all to the book - or 'merde', as they say instead of 'good luck' in these parts.

Thanks all... sorry about the flu, Minnie - it seems to be everywhere.
