I’ll be posting gradually…

Here is the first video from last night’s launch for Math Jones‘s The Knotsman

the powerful love poem Love Knot

Happy Author with book

I had to share this picture (THANK YOU Lucinda Sieger) I don’t know when I’ve seen an author look so deliriously happy to have their very own book in their hands.

That’s Math Jones, that is, with The Knotsman. You can see Math looking very happy about his book this WEDNESDAY 10th April at The Nell of Old Drury, Catherine Street Covent Garden from 7pm where we will be celebrating publication with cake and ale as is proper for something set in the seventeenth century, and readings from Math. Free entry, free cake, but we do expect you to buy a book!

Hither Green Festival Writing The Past

We are once again taking part in the lovely Hither Green Festival (they ask us, this is so rare, and so good for the ego!)

Saturday May 18th 7pm

at one of our favourite venues,

Manor House Library, on  Old Road SE13 5SY

Readings of stories and poems based in the past – from the 17th to the 20th Century – life stories and imagined lives, followed by a fairly short discussion about writing from history – what inspired the piece, what research was needed, how was the story shaped by the facts and which got in the way – that sort of thing.

Poetry:

Kate Foley will read from her two poetry collections of personal history, spanning adoption and WWI to coming out as a lesbian in the second half of the 20th Century, The Don’t Touch Garden and A Gift of Rivers

Math Jones will read from his recently published complex narrative made up of poems of imagined folkloric history set in the English Civil War, The Knotsman.

Short Stories

Joan Taylor-Rowan will read her short story The Bet about an incident during the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Rebecca Skipwith will read her short story Surplus Women set just after WWI, from the anthology An Outbreak of Peace

Katy Darby will read her story The Tyburn Jig set in the early 18th Century from the anthology Five by Five.

Cherry Potts will read from her novel in progress, The Bog Mermaid, set in 1926 and 1976.

It’s all go… new books!

It’s a busy day: just sent the files for Math JonesThe Knotsman to the printer, and confirmed the launch: Wednesday 10th April 7.30 at Nell of Old Drury (this link is quite flakey you might find their Facebook page easier) 29 Catherine Street, Covent Garden, London WC2B 5JS

just TAKEN DELIVERY of Noon… (launch(es) still being tied down, but expect Aberdeen London and possibly Cork)

and tomorrow is the launch in Wales, of Jeremy Dixon‘s In Retail.
