Ways of Seeing by Rick Vick

How we came to publish this one

Rick came to us when he visited our web site after seeing something about us on social media. It was clear to us that his writing was of a good quality, so we went ahead and agreed to publish.      

The title

This came to us as we went through the final stages of editing. It was a phrase that he’d used and indeed the pieces collectively offer us a way of looking at the world.        

Some notes about the process

Sadly, Rick passed away as were in the process of editing. However his friend Steve Wheeler, another writer and a well-qualified editor, took over the process on his behalf. It was a real privilege to be able work with Steve and with Rick’s family on making this such a super little book.    

The cover

Of course this is another of our little square books of flash fiction. The art work for the cover is also one of Rick’s pieces.      

Some notes about style

We have a mixture of short poems, short stories and glimpses of life.

Who we think the reader is

Rick has a big following and no doubt other creative writers and academies will find his work interesting. As ever with flash texts, the reader will read a piece and let it sink in for a day or so before moving on to the next. And as ever they can be read time and time again and still bring something new.    

What else

What would normally be the 50-75% share of the net sales revenue is being donated to the Nelson Trust “a charity that brings belief, hope and long-term recovery to people whose lives have been torn apart by addiction and the multiple and complex needs that come with it”.
