Almost ready, proof ordered!

A quick update on my new book of poetry.

I’ve uploaded the pdf, the cover images and played about with the cover maker on Lulu. It did say however that my image might not print as expected, something to do with frame rate :/ but I’ve read that others have gone ahead and printed and it’s come out fine so I’ll wait and see as I’ve just ordered a proof copy πŸ˜€

So fingers crossed that I’ll soon be anouncing the new book and a competition (although I said this the last time with Broken Roses and forgot!).

It carries on, in a way, from Broken Roses and hopefully it runs neat from dark to light, or lightish hehe and also I have it so it’s kind of cicular.

And it’s called … hmmm not yet πŸ˜€

Being Human: My second book of little thoughts is on sale now :)

20150603_175039

Hello everyone, it is a very happy day today. I took delivery of my new collection of little thoughts, which includes …

If a butterfly can change the weather
then our smiles can change the world

Deep in the twin souls of one
is where shadows go to become the sun

Freedom comes from loving what is

The book is available to buy here at Lulu.com where you’ll also find my first book, Silence Happens, which includes …

As a leaf falls, know this Earth is not ours

When in pain, think of the reason
for this could be the cure

Skin talks in colour
when it should talk in love

Yes I have published a collection of my Little Thoughts.

I have self-published through Lulu.com

I have edited some and added a good handful
of new and unpublished Little Thoughts.

Now Lulu seemed very confusing to me at first
until, that is, assistance appeared in the form
of my very, very good friend, Diane M. Denton
who also helped with the editing.

(Please visit Diane’s site for lovely art and exquisite poetry.
Her Novel β€˜A House Near Luccoli’ is literary historical fiction set in Genoa
imagining an intimacy with the 17th century composer. Alessandro Stradella.)

My wonderful, wonderful, lovely friend, Sarah Whiteley
gave me the encouragement, and still does,
to get off my backside and get something into print.

(Please visit Sarah’s site for her beautiful poetry and stunning photography.
Her first chapbook No Direction But Home
is worth every second of time spent reading it.)

I would like to thank everyone who has been with me
since I started writing poetry in August 2011

If you could see the smile on my face as I type these words

“I did it! I finally did it!”
