Paperback Updates

Paperback Updates

Apologies for the double post today! I promised to keep you updated on the status of Broken Body Fragile Heart, namely whether or not the paperback I created through Blurb ever turned up on Amazon. I’m pleased to announce that it’s now definitely available in the US and the UK. You can get it from fun places like the Book Depository as well as directly through Amazon, which is super exciting to me. I’m glad it’s finally working. In the…

BBFH (and Other Poetry Updates)

BBFH (and Other Poetry Updates)

I’ll be putting some of my cool photos from York up soon (if you’re following me on Instagram, you might have seen a lot of them already), but I just thought I’d update you on the status of Broken Body Fragile Heart, my third poetry collection and the only one theoretically available in paperback. Theoretically being the key word there. You may remember that a while back I made the decision to sell the paperback through Amazon rather than directly…

A Few Poetry Announcements

A Few Poetry Announcements

Though I’m still in my mini blogging hiatus, I’ve got a few announcements to make regarding my poetry. Before we start, this is a reminder that descriptions, reviews and links to where to buy my poetry are all listed on the Books page. :) E-book editions A while ago I made all of my collections available on Nook and Kobo, taking them out of KDP Select in the process. Since I did that, I’ve sold a grand total of ……

The World Of Poetry Is Changing

The World Of Poetry Is Changing

I rarely talk about poetry on this blog, and given that I’m trying to persuade you to take me seriously as a poet (at least as seriously as you ever take me), I thought I should remedy that. Fortunately, I have plenty of ideas, following on from a discussion I had with a friend yesterday about poetry and the publishing industry. After I’d said that one of my primary reasons for self-publishing my poetry collections was that it’s almost impossible…

The Price Of A Book

The Price Of A Book

This post doesn’t mark the end of the wonderful guest posters (because I’ve still got a couple of things promised or waiting to go up), nor are my hands yet recovered totally from RSI, but it was relevant to this moment in time, so I wanted to share it with you! This post does, however, include pictures of my face. I’m sorry. I look about twelve. I don’t know what happened there. So, this week was an exciting week. It…

A Moment Of Realisation

A Moment Of Realisation

In the past I have gone Christmas shopping at Greenwich Market. I’ve wandered around the stalls, picked up and fingered pieces of home-made artwork, seen little things that I just knew were perfect for so-and-so, or found exactly the notebook that blah had asked for. It’s probably quite an expensive way of doing things, but if you have no idea what to get people then markets are ideal. You don’t have to choose a specific shop to go to, and…

I’m Still Alive!

I’m Still Alive!

So it occurred to me a couple of minutes ago (about the time when I had promised to close down my computer, actually) that I should probably write a blog post. Because today is Saturday, and it’s been a while. Unfortunately, I don’t really have a whole lot to say this week, which is unusual. Quite a few things have happened. But I’ll think of something. On Monday, I discovered that I got 74% in my RS mock exam, which…
