Here’s some big news for the end of the week. Tempest Press are delighted to reveal that we have launched a new charity ebook. Callie’s Story: My Journey to Becoming a Breast Cancer Warrior Goddess by Callie Carling will be available from the amazon kindle store from Monday. For each copy sold, we donate to The Haven Breast Cancer Support Centres. A warrior through and through, Callie speaks in candid detail about her journey – frank, funny and engaging, just like Callie herself. Will be posting the links on Monday.

About the Author: Claire Meadows
Since September 2012, I have been chief writer and editor for the current affairs and arts blog After Nyne, and now After Nyne Magazine (to launch February 2014).
I became a Huffington Post blogger in November 2012.
I am the author of two published poetry books Gold After, and Brittle Fires for Tempest Press's Virgo Rising imprint.
From September 2012 to February 2013, I was Founding Director of Tempest Public Relations, working with a range of clients including Irish American writer Micheal O Coinn, whose debut poetry pamphlet, Five Words, was published by my publishing house Tempest Press, and Callie Carling, author of breast cancer memoir Callie's Story, also published by Tempest Press.
I also acted as the official UK PR consultant to the US based Free Sara Kruzan campaign's Day of Action in London in 2012.
Before this, I was founding director of artist's agency Liquid Gallery - parent company of the Liquid Art Fair Battersea, and Nyne Magazine.
Outside of work, I have a keen film historian, with a particular interest in films from the 1930s to the 1960s. I am a voracious and omnivorous reader, and enjoy cooking, and country pubs with my husband and dog, Willow.
