Good morning and a happy weekend to all of my dear readers,
I just wanted to let you know that I am currently working on not one, not two, but three new poetry collections!
- One will be a chapbook of lyrical love poetry so unashamedly romantic that I’m not sure any publisher will touch it, but I may try to get it published by a small press. If you know of any small presses publishing this type of poetry, I’d love to hear about them!
- One will be a highly personal collection of poems which I plan to publish on my fortieth birthday (in February next year.)
- The final collection will comprise the best of my eco-poetry. I am going to enter this manuscript in a competition, as I believe it is a strong collection.
Stay tuned for further updates! As you can see, I am pretty busy, as I’m also working on final edits of my first novel. This is the hardest task at the moment: the poetry manuscripts are nearly done! I can’t wait to share this work with you, as many people have asked me in the past when I will be publishing my first solo collection. So now you know: February next year, if not before…
And now for a reminder, to anyone striving to see their work in print, or turn writing into a full-time profession:
