Congratulations to Alison Love whose new novel has just been published by Quartet Books. The Girl From the Paradise Ballroom was launched last week at Daunt Books in Holland Park, London. Alison says: ‘Like many writers I’ve had a lot of ups and downs in my career, so it’s thrilling to see my third novel in print. I’m also delighted that a German edition is coming out next summer.
‘Being shortlisted for the Bristol Short Story Prize has been hugely helpful for me. It’s not just that it boosts your confidence: it also makes publishers more interested in your work.’
We wish Alison every success with the novel.
Alison’s short story, Sophie Stops the Clocks, was shortlisted for the 2013 Bristol Short Story Prize and published in our Volume 6 Anthology.
