Kate is next reading at Fourth Friday, at the Poetry Cafe,Betterton Street London, this Friday
Both our July venues are in New Cross, mid-distance between the stations – Amersham Arms is nearer New Cross, Out of the Brew is nearer New Cross Gate.
19th July at 7.30 we are launching Five by Five with four of the five authors (Joan Taylor-Rowan, Katy Darby, Cassandra Passarelli and Helen Morris), at
Out of the Brew 306 New Cross Road, London SE14 6AF. FREE
in the garden if fine… there are rumours of themed cocktails. books for sale, authors to sign them. Everyone welcome RSVP
Can’t wait? Word bookshop a few doors down from the cafe have stock in already owing to eagerness on their part and our distributors being super-efficient. Get down there and ask David for a copy.
(Reviewers copies available now – please ask)
The moment the book becomes ‘real’ for me as the publisher, is when I hold the ‘running sheets’ in my hand. These are an actual print of the book, unbound, sent from the printer for quality control purposes.
That’s the point I start gearing up for publicity and all that jazz.
As on this occasion the arrival of the running sheets has coincided with the last week of LGBT History Month, it is appropriate that the book in question is Kate Foley’s love letter to her wife, A Gift of Rivers.
Kate has to be in Amsterdam when the book is due out, so there will be a pre-publication ‘launch’ on 5th April at the lovely Gay’s the Word. Everyone welcome.Books will actually be available from us, by the end of March so feel free to preorder.
And Kate will also be speaking at the London Book Fair Poetry Collective at 17.30 on Tuesday 10th April.
We are looking at whether we can have an official launch-day party in Amsterdam on 26th April!
