Multi-talented artist Polly Hope launches her first ebook
WritersReadersDirect is proud to announce the first-time publication of a short story collection by artist/writer Polly Hope. 'Three True Stories' is a highly entertaining collection of traveller's tales, now available at the WRD ebookstore.
"Polly Hope never fails to surprise and delight with her work, whether it's fiction or opera, a piece of textile art or a painting," says Susan Barrett of WritersReadersDirect. "I'm thrilled to be publishing her collection, Three True Stories, making them available for the first time. The stories are written in true Polly style, full of energy, colour and interest. With backdrops drawn from Translyvian, Greece and the London Underground, love and desire are entwined with ancient myth and religion, a heady mixture to while away any length journey."

Set up by novelist Susan Barrett, WRD takes advantage of the digital revolution to provide original fiction and nonfiction in digital formats for reading on handheld devices such as iPhones, iPads, Kindles and the Sony Reader. Short stories are particularly suited to the medium. What lifts WRD out of the ordinary is its total independence. It has no connection with any print publisher, self-publishing firm or eReader manufacturer. Only original fiction and non-fiction works of a high standard are accepted for publication as ebooks. As the eBookandroid reviewer put it, (www.ebookandroid.com 30.03.11) : " The site is well set up and all works well, so wandering around it - as I did - is easy ... I wish this site all the best, and hope that many writers and readers head on over to it and help make it into what I feel it richly deserves to become - a largish, friendly place for writers and readers of new writing to find each other."
