It’s Publication Day!

Happy Ending NOT Guaranteed, is now available from bookshops. Go and get a copy!

To celebrate there has been cake making. Apple, obviously.

Pictured, as getting it to the venue in one piece NOT Guaranteed – the chocolate writing won’t STAY on the rice paper – Why NOT!?

Hopefully tastes alright. Despite testing the recipe it came out different, owing to forgetting the baking powder in the test version. I think it worked better without!

 

It’s poetry publication day!

Today we publish two poetry books: With Paper for Feet by Jennifer A McGowan

with paper for feet

and Foraging by Joy Howard

foraging-front-cover-copy

 

Available from excellent bookshops everywhere, and online from us and our lovely sales partners Inpress, and the usual suspects.

If you haven’t yet RSVPed for the launch party tonight, please do let us know if you are coming! Otherwise there may not be enough vino to go round, and that would be truly terrible.

We’ve already had a review for each book!
