Publishing Days Pass Like a Shadow by Paula R. C. Readman


  How we came to publish this one

We’ve known Paula for some time. Her short stories have appeared in many of our annual anthologies, she has been published on CaféLit and in the Best of CaféLit collections and she has also appeared in our Waterloo books.

Paula is always very supportive of any of our efforts so it was a pleasure to publish this collection for her.      

The title

A very fitting title for this collection.       

The cover

The cover image is ethereal. Paula worked with our designer on this. The angel’s face appears on the front of the book and the blurb is spread across it’s wing on the reverse.    

Some notes about style

I didn’t edit this one but several of the stories have already appeared in our anthologies. We’ve started anonymous submissions though I did recognise Paula’s style when one of her stories came in recently.

There is a firm voice here. The author keeps us guessing throughout the stories. I guess we like her style generally.        

Who we think the reader is

These stories are all an easy read but at the same time they promote a few thoughts.  This collection therefore is for the thoughtful reader who also wants to be entertained. For the reader who like to look at the darker side      


The book continues to sell steadily though has not yet covered all of its set-up costs.  We could do with a few more sales, however. If you’d like a copy, click on the image and you’ll be taken straight to Amazon.  

What else

This is one of three books that Paula has had published this year. So, nothing  happens for years and then three come along at once. I can personally recommend all three.
