What do you think?

I’m planning on launching The Butterfly Tree in May – will you buy it?!

Thank you for following my journey through Clouds – I hope you enjoyed the paintings I produced to accompany my quest!

Over the summer I won’t be blogging quite as much; every 2 weeks or so. I’m exploring the different Gardens I’ve known over the years in short prose, as well as posting some of my poster paint experiments on paper!

Over at my other blog, Pure Haiku, my guests and I will be exploring the theme of Translucence from 1st April! Why don’t you join us there?

For the next few weeks I’ll be taking a blogging break and I look forward to catching up with you all on your blogs at the beginning of May!

Just because they’re cheap does not mean they’re rubbish. Each of my books is unique and different. I don’t write to a formula. I write from my imagination. If you like quirky and off-the-wall, you’ll enjoy my writing.

Go on! Give these books a go. They’re not going to break the bank! The Kaerling e-volumes are currently 99c – until 1st May 2020!

This year I am trying out something different from my usual Newsletter!

This year there will be no more pdfs. Instead, I will be producing a much shorter Newsletter once a month.

This year I will be rotating an insight into my real life, a poem from my inner landscape, a character study and an episode from the current free story.

I received the last issue of clippings at the end of August, I found it wonderful! The episode is so funny and intriguing, your poetry excellent. I really loved all of your elfje, which present very vivid and powerful images and scenery. C Messelodi

This means you’ll get something a bit different each month and will hopefully get a glimpse into my life as a writer.

Once again I’m working with photography, Jonathon B. Hoyt and artist Elisa Ang Choi.

Are you on board yet? If not, you can sign up safely and securely HERE!

Welcome to my world. It’s a strange place but full of unexpected delights and dangers …

If you prefer to understand me on a deeper level, then further insights into both my real life and my creativity can be found at Patreon!
