ATWC front cover

The Worcester launch of All the Waves, Calling will take place at 4pm Sunday 2 July at the Quaker Meeting House, 1 Sansome Walk, Worcester WR1 1UG. Doors will open at 3.45pm. The online link will appear here on the day and also on the events page.

Join us for the launch of All the Waves, Calling. This is the debut novel from Swansea writer Jamie D. Stacey. The novel reflects contemporary, accessible literary fiction and is aimed at adults, especially those drawn to atmospheric and life-affirming stories. It seeks to add to the discussion on men and mental health today, in particular men’s ofttimes struggle with opening up about grief and isolation.


‘Men don’t talk, especially about grief. But they should—before it’s too late.’


‘Corey’s…journey blends the real world of his past with the ethereal backdrop of his troubled mind. The result is a young man who may have died, is certainly broken and definitely cannot come to terms with the tragedy until he understands what the tragedy is’ —Jackie Buxton, author and editor


May 17th, 6-7.30pm saw the opening event for this novel about loss, resilience – and hope. It featured an exclusive author talk, Q & A, and book signing, along with some nightmarish cats, a scared bunny, and waves of everything in-between. The event was popular and well-attended.

Many of us know Jamie from his successes in writing flash fiction. His stories have been published in most Worcestershire LitFest Flash Fiction anthology for the past 12 years.

An avid reader of scratches on walls and scribbles in notebooks, Jamie D. Stacey is drawn to stories that empathise, encourage, and empower. He writes flash fiction, i.e., very short stories, and this, his debut novel, was published on 25 March 2023. Jamie says, ‘Whatever the form or shape of my writing, it’s the heart and hope inside each that matters.’

About the novel:

Men don’t talk, especially about grief. But they should—before it’s too late.

Grief throws Corey into a disordered world where nothing makes sense. His reality is fractured by dark stabs of mental pain that convert his life into an unfathomable maze. He doesn’t know forward from backward, where normality has gone, or how to get it back.

In despair, he buys a one-way ticket on the ‘Train to Nowhere’. It derails on a dark, isolated beach in the Highlands, where he befriends the only other known survivor, Skye. Sheltering in a ghost town, they embark on a strange journey to find answers: how did the train crash, what is this place, and, most worryingly, who is Skye?
