Mosaic of Air Cherry Potts ISBN: 978-1-909208-03-2 FANTASY/SCI-FI/ CONTEMPORARY
Sixteen short stories from a lesbian perspective.

We’ve always received a great deal of support from libraries, (Lewisham, Kensington & Chelsea and Greenwich in particular) helping us with venues for readings and more high profile events, like the Solstice Shorts Festival which has been hosted by Better Libraries in Greenwich for three years now, and our Anniversary party being held at Manor House Library in Lewisham (managed by V22), and want to return the compliment. Our only stipulations are that the library pays for the delivery, and that books go into stock, and aren’t sold to raise funds. That way we both benefit, as our authors will receive Public Lending Rights fees.

Our first take-up for this offer has come from Merton Libraries and the books are packed and ready to go!
