Hostile Takeover published by Spineless Wonders

My Carmel Bird Award longlisted story Hostile Takeover has just been published as an esingle by Spineless Wonders as part of the Amanda Lohrey Selects Series.

Here’s the blurb: ‘Z works within Treasury, in a government where knowledge and alliances are power, and people are bought, used and manipulated. Z is blindsided when he learns that he has been “bought” by the highest ranked official of a dangerous government agency, who took advantage of a sinister new law. Now Z must indulge her every whim and request. Will he ever find a way out of her grip? Claire Corbett’s convincing characters and intriguing narrative gives an insight into an alternative reality that is scarily convincing. It will keep you guessing to the very last page.’

The Carmel Bird Award: Amanda Lohrey Selects

I entered the Carmel Bird Award for Women’s Long Short Stories last year and am pleased that my story, Hostile Takeover, was selected as part of the longlist of twelve to be published as Amanda Lohrey Selects. (All stories were read blind.)

The 12 stories will be released serially as eSingles over the coming months (mine will be in December) and then the whole collection will also be available as an e-book.
