About Alec Beattie

Alec Beattie is a writer and spoken word performer and promoter based in Edinburgh. He has written, produced, and performed in shows during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has read his work at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. His stories have appeared in print and online, and have been read on national UK radio. His claim to literary fame was in 2012 when a series of poems won him a £30 Marks and Spencer's gift card, which he promptly used to buy £30 worth of posh food and booze.
Before self publishing he attempted to publish in the traditional manner but realised he was doing all the work while agents and publishers were getting all the cash.
'Mendacities' is his first published collection of short stories, and he plans to publish his first full length novel 'September 1919' in early 2016.
