Our publishing house’s first book Nicosia in Dark and White won a prestigious POYi Book of the Year award
It snowed in Nicosia (this happens less often than a leap year)
Wrote a new short story

A good week indeed

It’s only January but things have already been real busy.
A lot of new writing and lots of different projects in development. We are making travel plans for later in the year. Book Ex Machina is getting a site revamp.
But here’s a little sneak preview of a tasty literary treat we call Matchbook Stories.
Each matchbook is a tiny story in prose or poetry form. They are stories about meetings fleeting and temporary, about moments and places, invoking the feeling of real matchbooks. A few words that can be carried in a pocket and shared with a friend, or perhaps a stranger.
The first four made their debut in a Nicosia Christmas market. But there will be more on the way.
To kick off the project me and Matchbook Stories poetry editor Lee Jing-Jing contributed two each. Mine: Paris, Las Vegas and Cha Cha Chicken. Jing’s: An Old Wives’ Tale and Last Fall.
In due time we will post ways to buy and submission guidelines. But in the meantime, this is a sneak preview.

In early September Book Ex Machina went to Hamburg for Photo+Art Book Hamburg ’11
We also wandered around and took in the scenery.
Visited with friends.
Ate nice food.
And took some pictures.
