PRE-ORDER: We had hoped to get this book out to sell at the festival in a unique pre-publication offer to festival attendees but the long/short listing of the contents has been slow and difficult, and as a result, the printers can’t get it done in time.
We were relying on those sales to match fund the arts council. So we are asking for a little trust from people: the book will happen and should be available for the special pre-publication folk by February (Printers shut down over Christmas!) So please pre-order. This is our 19th book, we know what we are doing!
We don’t know exactly what will be in it yet, as final decisions are still being made, but you can expect quite a dark, creepy collection of stories and poems with bleak landscapes and dark deeds, but there is also light relief! We have a lot of starlings, crows and other birds, wolves and some supernatural goings-on – I can be reasonably sure there’ll be at least one of each of those.
