Publishing Success for Distance Learning MA Student

Date: 31 January 2012

Congratulations to Andrew Keir, who completed the MA in Creative Writing by Distance Learning in September 2011, and whose novella, Bloody Flies, is going to be published next month.

Bloody Flies is a sequence of glimpses into expat life in the opening decade of the twenty-first century and the shifting morals that occur when Middle-East meets West. After the death of Leo's father, Leo and Diana Hunter move their family to materialistic Abu Dhabi in pursuit of the best future that money can buy. But despite their commitment to this neat world their hopes soon begin to crumble under the shadow of corruption, slavery and greed. Moving Messages, an episode from Bloody Flies, was runner up in the 2010 Kitab/M Magazine short fiction competition.

Bloody Flies will be available in paperback and on Kindle. Please see the link below for more information.
