The Whole Desolate Day is now available on Kindle!



So pick your poison. It’s exciting to see the collection in so many countries.


Four years since its first call for submissions, The Whole Desolate Day, is now complete and available. Thank you to all the authors who submitted their work. It’s been a long process but well worth the wait. It’s a beautiful book.


To purchase your copy please visit: The Whole Desolate Day. Or you can find it at amazon and Amazon UK. Will also be available on Kindle soon.

Any authors who are interested in purchasing more than one copy, send me an email and I can work out a discounted price.

The Whole Desolate Day is currently undergoing a massive outcry for submissions. An anthology on addiction which was slated to be published in 2013 was unfortunately put on a back burner by its editor for reasons closely related to the subject matter.

All previously accepted work will still have a home in The Whole Desolate Day. If you are an author who submitted work to this anthology in either 2012 or 2013 your work is still accepted and will appear in the anthology.

If you are just discovering this anthology now please read the submission guidelines and consider sending your work.

The goal is to publish by Autumn 2015.

Submission deadline is January 15, 2015.
