Reminders

Usually I have a fair idea what to write about when I do my Monday blog post but I had no idea what I might write about today so I have decided to do something I don’t often do:

Indra's Net coverI would like to remind you about some of my recent books, after all if I don’t advertise them I won’t sell them. You will find out about them all on my Books page here (with the exception of “Indra’s Net” which isn’t strictly one of my books) but for now I will just mention the three most recent.

First comes the just mentioned “Indra’s Net”. As I said, this is not exactly one of my books but some poems of mine are included in it. The book has contributions by many poets from all over the world and is published by Bennison Books. It is being sold in aid of the Book Bus project and is available to buy on Amazon. You can read a more full account of this book here.

Simp;y Elfje coverNext comes my own book “Simply Elfje” which also includes contributions by various writers who submitted little Elfje poems to my blog of the same name, on which the book has been based.

This book is also available on Amazon and it is also my intention to produce it as an e-book. Unfortunately, due to a variety of unforeseen circumstances and life in general getting in the way, this has not yet happened but it is still on the plot and I am ever hopeful that this will be achieved before too many more months have passed! I will remind you again when the e-book is ready.

The Thirsty Flowers coverThe third book that I would like to draw to your attention once again is my illustrated children’s story book “The Thirsty Flowers” with its delightful illustrations by art student Kerrie Mccauley. I have had some very pleasing feed-back from children who have read it or, should I say, have had it read to them. Unfortunately this is not available from Amazon but can be purchased from my own website, Silverburn Publishing, which you will find here.

I also mention in passing  my two poetry collections, “Collecting Cobwebs, Gathering Brambles” and, for children, “Barking at Nothing”. You can also read more about these on my Books page and on my website via the links above.

Indra’s Net

Indra's Net coverRecently published by Bennison Books, ‘Indra’s Net’  is an anthology of poetry generously donated by writers from all over the world. The book is being sold in aid of The Book Bus charity ‘which aims to improve child literacy rates in Africa, Asia and South America by providing children with books and the inspiration to read them.’

The title was suggested by one of the contributors, the late Cynthia Jobin who tells us: ‘Indra’s Net is a metaphor for universal interconnectedness. It’s as old as ancient Sanskrit and as ‘today’ as speculative scientific cosmology.’ (from the Forward by Carol Rumens)

I am honoured to be included in this anthology alongside several prize-winning poets as well as other writers of ‘small stones’.

This is a varied, accessible and enjoyable poetry anthology in aid of a very worthwhile cause and I would like to encourage you to treat yourselves (or a friend) to a copy. The book is available from Amazon and all profits from the sale of this book will go to the charity. To buy a copy of the book please go to the Amazon page HERE.
