No, I’m not interested in babies!

1 November, 2022

Can you believe it’s nearly the end of 2022?

Shocking, isn’t it?

But don’t worry! If you feel in need of grounding before Christmas, check out my latest poetry offering, This Is Me, which will be launched in several weeks time. You can pre-order this volume BEFORE the launch from Amazon and other online stores!

I’m not interested in babies
And no
I haven’t got a boyfriend
I’m not wanting to get married
And no
I don’t want a house of my own.
I can’t afford a car
(I hate driving anyway)
No I don’t go drinking
And clubbing I can’t stand.

This is the first verse of the first poem in the collection and it was written in my mid-twenties! You don’t need to have read either Insides or My Mythology, but if you have, you’ll find This Is Me continues the threads of imagination and post-cancer trauma.

If you prefer paperback, This Is Me is already available, and the paperback contains all 3 volumes of poetry so far under the Dragonscale Delvings banner.

This Is Me, the ebook, has never been available as a single e-volume before so if you want to add to your collection of Dragonscale Delvings, pre-order your copy today!

There are TWO giveaways to tell you about for November!

Brave New Worlds and All Romance both run until 30th November. Both contain free books either in the Science Fiction and Fantasy or Romance genres. Download and enjoy!

This Freyan Verse was inspired firstly by the film “Space Cowboys” and secondly by losing one of my close writing friends in 2014. It also describes how alienated I felt during chemotherapy and during recovery from cancer. Click on the link to find out how to read this poem both vertically and horizontally. You can write your own, if you wish!
