It is October 1st and I have two exciting new book releases to share with you.
(Dis)Connected 2 poems & stories of connection & otherwise volume 2 which is put together by Michelle Halke of Central Avenue Publishing. These poems and stories are written from exciting writers like Alicia Cook, K.Y. Robinson & Tyler Knott Gregson. The poems inspire the stories. It must be an incredibly exciting project to be a part of. I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley. I am halfway through it and enjoying it.
The second book I have more or less finished and it is by one of my favourite contemporary writers, and that is Trista Mateer. The book is called Aphrodite Made Me Do It. It is a collection of poems and illustrations. I wasn’t disappointed with this book. I will write a review when I have finished reading reading reading this. It’s amazing.
Hello! If you remember (or are new here) I revealed to you the front cover of new charity anthology Persona Non Grata, edited by Isabelle Kenyon. You can now pre-order that anthology following this link to the publisher Fly on the Wall poetry press shop. There is poetry from 45 amazing poets, and the money raised from sales will go to the two charities, Crisis Aid UK, and Shelter.
Poetry Submissions are also open for the webzine at Fly on the Wall poetry press. The themes are Mental Health and Outsiders. The deadline is October the tenth. Guidelines are on the website here
Hold your flying horses!
Barnabas and Wilfred, two earnest but bumbling Victorian detectives, travel through the Nine Worlds of Norse mythology, trying to stave off the impending end of the world, an event which the locals call “Ragnarok”. This time around, however, the intrepid twosome has some help: a brave Viking seer named Brynhild and her flying horse.
Can the two plucky detectives and the fearsome Brynhild outwit those who would bring about Ragnarok? Will they survive the harsh conditions and terrifying creatures of the Norse afterlife? Will they save the world…again?
