Cough... cough... please meet my beautiful new baby! This is the press announcement from the publisher which went out today:

New Title: Messages by Sarah Salway & Lynne Rees
A wilfully unusual and creative book, Messages is what can happen when two talented writers share their words, without meeting. Using email, 300 pieces of exactly 300 words were exchanged, each one returned within a time limit of 72 hours. Links between the pieces were made creatively – words, theme, character, object, form, or even mood. In all, the project took eighteen months to complete and the results are now available in book form.

Messages is beautifully produced in a book 8" square, and features a cover based on original artwork from Tony Crosse. Scheduled to be officially released on the 22nd of May, we have a limited number of pre-release copies currently available and they are well worth investing in with a RRP of £10.
