ACW member Allison Symes has had a short story published in an anthology.

The Best of Cafelit 5 - Edited by Gill James. Publisher: Chapeltown Books (as mentioned Bridge House Publishing, Cafelit and Chapeltown are all interlinked).

Blurb: Each story in this little volume is the right length and quality for enjoying as you sip the assigned drink in your favourite Creative Cafe. You need never feel alone again in a cafe. So what's the mood today? Espresso? Earl Grey tea? Hot chocolate with marshmallows? You'll find most drinks in our drinks index. If you're reading the cafe's copy and you have your Kindle or iPhone with you, why now download the Kindle version? Or browse the CafeLit web site for more examples of CafeLit stories?

She has also had a short story published in a further anthology 

Baubles - an anthology Edited by Debz Hobbs-Wyatt and Gill James. Publisher: Bridge House Publishing.

Blurb: The challenge was to write a bauble of a story. So we have a varied selection of snippets that sparkle. Once again we feel privileged to publish this fine group of writers. Each story is different and glitters in its own way. Enjoy!
