News from Townsend 11, the writing collective Iâ€™ve belonged to for years here in San Francisco:
Firstâ€”Volume 1 of our new book series, No Fixed Destination: Eleven Stories of Life, Love, Travel, was originally published in July as a Kindle book. But now we have made it available at most e-book stores:
- Amazonâ€™s Kindle Store
- Appleâ€™s iBooks Store (buy through the app)
- Barnes & Nobleâ€™s Nook Book Store
- Diesel e-Book Store
This collection of 11 personal essays, memoirs, and true stories from Townsend 11, a group of award-winning writers, takes readers on emotional journeys and adventures from California to Croatia to China and back, Ethiopia to Egypt, England to New England, and Hawaii to Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Nextâ€”Volume 2 of the series, No Set Boundaries: Eleven Stories of Life, Misadventure, will be published in a few days on the Kindle Store, and through other e-Book outlets a few weeks later.
In No Set Boundaries, you can witness a Catalan ritual in Barcelona, shop the Italian way, freeze on an English beach, deal with prejudice in Ethiopia, backpack down a frightening road in Cambodia, rest in a California garden, and glide along on a French canal. Youâ€™ll learn about a bent zucchini thatâ€™s not a vegetable, try to help lost travelers, break a leg on a mountain trail, and dash through an ancient city in India.
And finallyâ€”Volume 3, No Definite Plans: Eleven More Stories will be out this fall. More on this as we get closer to publication.
Townsend 11â€²s authorsÂ are:Â Jennifer Baljko, Carol Beddo, Jacqueline Collins, John Dalton, Larry Habegger, Dana Hill, Barbara Robertson, Bonnie Smetts, Jacqueline Yau, Bill Zarchy,Â andÂ Y.J. Zhu.
My contributions: a story in each volume, our website, and cover photography on Volume 2.
No Kindle? No iPad? You donâ€™t have to own an e-reader like a Kindle, iPad, Nook or other tablet to enjoy our e-books.Â You can probably read them on a device you already own.
