The book launch event was fantastic and incredibly well attended. The pace of poetry was relentless (40 readers in 2 hours!) and my own performance went well I'm told (I have not yet felt brave enough to watch the video pushkin666 oh so thoughtfully took...). I was so happy to have friends there to enjoy the evening with me, so heartfelt thanks to pushkin666, moth2fic, fledge and trialia for attending, and for margaret_r for being there in the spirit :)
There is a review of the event here at Write Out Loud if you want to read about it more.
And of course, the book itself is now out for sale.
You can buy it directly from the publisher's website, for a measly £9.99 (free P&P within UK!) The variety and quality of the poems is seriously impressive so I can recommend the book without a reservation.
I am in a bit of a slump at the moment when it comes to poetry writing. The thesis seems to be sapping all my creativity at the moment, which I'm not pleased about. Hopefully a change of scenery will work and the upcoming three weeks in Finland will provide some inspiration.
