Flash! has lift off! Win a free book...

I just listened to the first Afternoon Reading program with my flash stories and I am feeling quite emotional. The readers, Nicola & Tom, and Jeremy, the producer, at Sweet Talk, did the most wonderful job, I thought. Thanks all of you for the lovely messages through Twitter and other channels! Can't wait for tomorrow's program. If you missed today's, check here shortly, you should be able to hear it again for the next 7 days.

Now for that book give away! To win a signed copy of The White Road and Other Stories, the easy question is: Which stories from today's broadcast are taken from the book? (Hint: the list of stories is on the BBC, and the book's Table of Contents is here.) Leave a comment below and I'll pick a winner at the end of the week. Happy Flash!

I have the book (including Mugs, Heavy Bones and Plaits), but I'm going to post on behalf of my mother, who is more like a fountain pen than an upright piano. Wonderful readings!

Tania Hershman said...

Thank you, Clare! Should I put you in the hat on behalf of your mother, the fountain pen?

Mugs - Heavy Bones and Plaits. My Mother is a thermos flask of tea : )

Will listen again during the week because it was just so wonderful to hear the stories.

Readers had the best voices!

These stories were from book:

Heavy Bones

Will return for Part II reading.

My Mother - the fountain pen - would love to go in the hat, Tania, thanks!
Jo - I'm intrigued!

Hi marisa, they are amazing actors, eh?

Jo, your mother sounds very comforting!

CK, she's in!

Skippy, we never force anyone's mother to comment!

Had never heard of you before yesterday when, on a train from Leeds to London, I caught the Readings and was totally captivated. I will certainly buy your book and listen again.

Dear Anon, thank you so much for stopping by, so glad you enjoyed my stories! I hope you find something to enjoy in the book, too.
