Our Feel-Good Summer Fiction Bookazine will be available from Wednesday, May 29.

Isn’t the cover beautiful? I love the colours our designers have chosen, the blues and greens, and the butterflies.

The bookazine features forty-four brand new stories written exclusively for ‘The People’s Friend’.

All the stories are written by well-loved ‘Friend’ authors.
