It is a beautiful day in my city, cool breeze, cotton clouds and a melodious cacophony of birds and crickets outside my window. I’m listening to Nina Simone on YouTube with a hot cup of coffee and some clotted cream shortbread next to me.
A perfect time of the day to share another good news with all of you.
My second book of poems published by Leaky Boot Press is now available to pre-order. It has a very different set of poems from ‘Collection Of Chaos‘ which was published in Jan, 2014. This book is very special to me for various reasons. The entire process of writing and assembling this book was a learning experience in various aspects of writing, editing, and presenting a literary work. I also realized how hard an editor’s job is. No one thanks them really.
James Goddard, who is a fantastic writer/photographer/editor/ mentor gave hours of dedicated time all through the making of this book and before that to help me polish my writing. You will see what a fabulous job he’s done. Thank you Jim.
Here is the cover, a gorgeous photograph by James Goddard. I will tell you the cover story later 😀
There were times I felt that the book was jinxed but here it is to pre-order . Soon it will be available with other booksellers and online retailers worldwide too. Keep checking.
You’ll buy, won’t you? Show some love for poetry folks, we need it especially in the times we are living in.
The printed copies have arrived in England and will soon come to me too. The book releases on Monday, 20th Nov, 2017 and will be available with all online book sellers across the globe.
I will be getting some extra copies that I have earmarked for a few people. Some will be on sale too. Maybe at a lower price. Need to figure out the numbers and other logistics.
I will keep you updated on events connected to the book though there won’t be any readings etc for now.
