The London publisher Unbound is now seeking backers for my new novel, Quays. It’s a Manhattan-set Jazz Age drama of love, death, madness, literature, booze, politics and sex – what’s not to like? I’m really proud of this novel; if you enjoy my stories, PLEASE think about making a pledge.
Head over to https://unbound.com/books/quays, where you can find out more about Quays, pledge your support, and choose from a range of bookish rewards. With Unbound, you get to play a real part in turning a manuscript into a published book – so much more fun than just turning up at a bookstore and picking a copy off the shelf.
For updates, links and conversation, you can find me on Twitter at @RSmythFreelance.
My short fiction has appeared in Structo, Foxhole, The Stockholm Review, Riptide Journal, The Stinging Fly, The Fiction Desk, Litro, .Cent, Haverthorn, The Lonely Crowd, Firewords and Vintage Script. As a journalist, I write for publications including The Guardian, The TLS, New Statesman, New Humanist and New Scientist, and I’m the author of four non-fiction books.
