I have waited a long time to be able to say this... and we're here! Next week, BBC Radio 4 will be broadcasting a whole week of my flash stories on the Afternoon Reading!
Because the stories are so short, there will be 5 or 6 per day in the 15-minute slot which has uptil now only ever broadcast a single story. So: 16 stories in total, on Tuesday June 29th, Wednesday June 30th and Thursday July 1st, first broadcast at 3.30pm UK time and then available online as Listen Again programmes for 7 days afterwards.
In honour of this exciting event, I am going to be giving away one signed copy of my book on each day of the broadcast, and all you will have to do is answer a very simple question. So stay tuned, pop back on Tuesday, and find out how you can win!
In the meantime, I went to hear my stories being recorded by the ever-wonderful Sweet Talk Productions in London a few weeks ago, here are pictures of the amazing Nicola Walker (soon to be seen on our screens again as "Ruth" in Spooks) and Tom Goodman-Hill doing their thing in the studio!
