Bob Hale and Laurie Kolp interview us & 20% off book orders in the UK and US

20% off all books at Lulu 

Great News - have just sent us an email. We've got a discount code for you all to get 20% off all book orders in the UK and US. The code works once per person, and expires on Monday. 

Here's the text from Lulu:

This is the UK code:
Enter coupon code GIANTUK305 at checkout and receive 20% off your book order. The maximum savings for this offer is £100. Sorry, but this offer is only valid in Pounds and cannot be applied to previous orders. You can only use this code once per account, and unfortunately you can't use this coupon in combination with other coupon codes. This great offer expires on 7 March, 2011 at 11:59 PM, so don't miss out! While very unlikely, we do reserve the right to change or revoke this offer at anytime, and of course we cannot offer this coupon where it is against the law to do so.

The code for the US is: GIANT305. Terms and conditions apply.

Here are the links to the different formats: the paperback, the hardback gift edition, and the ebook (pdf)

We've been showing our copy off to our friends today, we're both really pleased with how it looks and feels. Reading it again reminds me how many pieces of wonderful writing there are, and how rich and varied all our worlds are. Keep writing. 

Interview with Bob Hale

small stoner Bob Hale keeps a blog called The Hitting The Road Blues. Fiona and I answered his questions about the river of stones project and, the book, and it's online now:

Where did the idea originally come from?
Fiona: I don’t know really – it was one of those ideas that just appeared from the blue. I thought it’d be nice to encourage more people to write small stones, and people like a challenge, so one-a-day during January felt like the right thing!
Read the whole thing: A River of Stones on The Hitting The Road Blues.

And here's another lovely piece just up, on Laurie's Conversations with with a Cardinal.

If you want to interview us for you blog do let us know, we're happy to answer questions. Email me (Kaspalita) or Fiona.


  1. Apologies if you bought the book just before this post. We didn't know there's be a sale this weekend.

  2. Got my copy – digital. Thanks for including my haiku Kaspa and Fiona. I hope the book sells well.

  3. And what about Canada?! I have a friend who contributed. Normally, such books are anthologies and participants pay a small fee, and get a free book out of the deal. It doesn't seem fair you are using their work for free.

  4. Sorry Jenn, it was Lulu's promotion, not ours. We didn't charge a fee for entry and there are 320 people in the book. We are offering a free PDF to contributors.
