Happy New Year!

5 January, 2019

Happy New Year to you all!

I hope you had an enjoyable, restful and peaceful Christmas!

Just wanted to drop you all a line to let you know what I’m up to. I am planning on releasing two books in the first few months of this year!

My Mythology is a book of poetry, which can be found in my paperback, This Is Me. Next month I hope to release My Mythology as an e-book. In it I explore all my sources of inspiration…

I’m also hoping to release An Ancient Song. This is the third volume in The Kaerling series. If you’ve not yet read Silver Fire – it’s a free download! The second volume, Ambassador is available to purchase online in various stores. An Ancient Song tells of Otta’s continuing search for the unicorn and has a surprising twist at the end!

Over the winter I’ve been busy replenishing my creativity and have been painting once more! Here is of my creations that I wanted to share with you today along with a verse from a poem in My Mythology …

empty like

his hollow heart, the

blank mirror

gives nothing

back; taking only, never

satisfied

Equinox

20 December, 2018
chameleon’s glare; full moons rising
near moon – regular rhythmical
far moon at perigee looms
the sea-tides are surging
rivers are flooding
gales howling
Equinox
storming
hide!

Violet Landscape

2 November, 2018
this gleaming vista of frozen earth
diamond-crusted ground, lilac hints
silver shades of blue and pink
gently cast by twin moons
violet landscape
purple flora;
these night-time
shadows
fall

This Is Me – peek inside …

27 May, 2018
pink little stoma rosebud bright
innocently gleams in the light
who could believe such pure flesh
could vomit forth such filthiness?

birthed from the ninth wave
foaming mane, spindrift tail
fertile, burgeoning

to see through a glass darkly, mirror, of course, but what if
it also meant a window, grimed, muddy with mortality
only when you pass beyond, does the view at last make sense

I’ve recently launched my first ever paperback anthology, containing three volumes of poetry! Find out more at This Is Me, YouTube and Amazon.

This Is Me

19 May, 2018

Sometimes, the past is too painful to put into prose.
Sometimes, the past can only be portrayed through poetry.
This Is Me, is my first anthology containing 3 volumes of poetry and it is available in paperback from Amazon!
Dragonscale Delvings is the series title for my poetry publications. This paperback contains my first three poetry collections; Insides (also available as an e-book), My Mythology & This Is Me.
Insides is a hands-on experience of cancer. Discover what it is like to find out you have cancer. How do you deal with a temporary stoma? How do you cope after major open surgery? How do you even start recovering? And how do you get through the dreadful experience of chemotherapy?

My Mythology is a compendium of everything and everyone who has inspired me to write. From the tales of the Bible to Celtic and Norse legends, from unicorns to dragons, from vampires to werewolves, from Dr Who to Space Oddity … Read on for an inspiring smorgasbord of verse!
This Is Me is about my daily life; writing, working, dancing, reading, observing, loving … I often find it hard to put into prose how I really feel. (Writing stories is easy – I’m being someone else). But real life is hard to capture in plain prose. Thus I express myself and my innermost feelings through the varied and flexible forms of poetry.
In this book I am honest, playful and brutally truthful. This is me. The real me. If you really want to know the person behind the name, read this book. You’ll understand me better than the people who know me face to face but refuse to read my writings! “I love your beautiful way with words … You bring light and truth with your creativity …” Julie P.

And, as usual, I’ve prepared a short video as a teaser to get you reading! Check it out at YouTube
The E-book versions of My Mythology and This Is Me will be released at some point in the future!

Recovering

11 May, 2018
absorbed in crafting
words and weaving sentences
I forget the time
emptied of emotion
hollow heart blank
stone ventricles
a desire to feel
yearning for the positive
dreaming of sensation
I am recovering

Cover Reveal – This Is Me

7 May, 2018

I know this is unusual these days, but I’m releasing my first ever poetry anthology as a paperback!
I had intended to release the first 3 volumes of Dragonscale Delvings (my poetry publications) before releasing the paperback. But, a number of people expressed an interest in buying my poetry in paperback form so they could dip in and out of it which is difficult with an e-book. So, I started thinking… Why keep these readers waiting while the e-books are released? That’s when I decided to bring out the paperback anthology first!
Here’s the front cover for This Is Me. It’s a biography in poetry in 3 parts, dealing with Cancer, My Imagination and My Life.
It will be available to buy from 19th May 2018 from Amazon and any good bookshop will be able to order it for you!
Help me spread the word – please share and re-blog this post!
