I’ve just had the final set of proofs through to check for the forthcoming anthology ‘Ruins Metropolis’ from Hadley Rille books, which will contain my short Story ‘In the Precinct of Amun-Re’.
The guidelines for this one were to write a story based on a picture – the picture that will form the cover of the book – you can see it here. The story had to feature the woman in the picture as the protagonist and be set in the ruins where she is standing.
I took the ruins to be the temple of Karnak and set my story there, but it is in fact Temple of Horus in Edfu, which looks very similar.
It’s going to be really interesting, when I get my contributor’s copy, to see what all the other authors came up with!
So, since it’s raining and I’m now feeling in an Egyptian mood I think we’ll go and see some mummies this afternoon.
