Anne Hill, Sussex Life magazine Must-Reads for May 2020

25 April 2020

Sussex independent publisher Myriad Editions has joined forces with Creative Future and New Writing South to produce Spotlight Books, a collection of stylish, pocket-friendly novellas and poetry by writers from under-represented backgrounds.

Of the first six books, five are by Sussex-based authors. Tara Gould is one, with a beautifully-written tale of a motherless girl growing up to become a mother struggling against her destiny.

Hove resident Georgina Aboud’s story is very different: a disjointed account of scenes and events in an actress’ life as she prepares to return to the stage.

Judging by these excellent little books, Spotlight Books deserves success.

I've always adored miniatures - tiny cosmetics, dolls house figures, mini bar bottles and Neopolitan chocolates (remember?) So I was delighted to receive these small-but-perfectly-formed Spotlight books from @myriad_editions for my #weekendreads.
