Happy spider

In six weeks from today, on 8th August, we will be launching No Spider Harmed in the Making of This Book, with premiered readings on our YouTube channel and our Facebook Page. At the moment this will be at 8pm BST. As we have authors all round the world, we may have a second viewing. If you nip along now and subscribe you’ll get a reminder!

Here is a spider getting excited at the prospect.

Virtual Launch, Time and Tide: Laura Potts reads her poem, First Light

 

Laura Potts, reading from her home at the rapidly put together online launch of Time and Tide. We had a week’s notice that we had to move the launch on-line. Our authors pulled out all  the stops, learnt new skills and we launched on 21st March on our Facebook Page with Live recordings. We didn’t really have time to promote, so we barely sold any books… We’d love you to buy a copy of this EXCELLENT book, available in 2 editions!

our most recently published poetry book

In all seriousness, we are racing to get all our poetry converted into ebooks so that self isolators (and those still putting themselves at risk in essential jobs for that matter) can get at them with ease. We didn’t do this before because we are perfectionists and we dont like what it does to the formatting – and we are reducing the price of all our ebooks to 99p for the duration. Someone else is setting that up for us so not sure if they are all sorted yet…

If you want to sample the wares, there are lots of videos and audio files dotted about the website, especially in the blog, and we are TODAY doing a virtual launch on our Facebook Page. join us from 2pm to about 3.30, for a mix of short stories and poems.

This is Casting a Daughter Adrift, which is actually in Time and Tide.

You can buy Time and Tide in two different editions from us, the standard one, available in the shops (from 21st March) or the illustrated limited edition.

We will be doing a VIRTUAL launch on 21st March from 2pm, with live readings from Neil Lawrence, Elizabeth Parker, Elizabeth Hopkinson, Claire Booker, Ness Owen, and CB Droege, and pre-recorded segments from Emily Bullock and Laura Potts via our Facebook page, as we think it wise not to encourage people to congregate, but still want to celebrate our lovely book! We hope to just delay our event at Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, but we’ll see how it goes!
