This is one of those weeks where 140 words won’t be enough.
I launched my first anthology this week: edited and printed in East Lothian, part of my residency of Lanterne Rouge, cycling cafe of the year UK(!) in Gifford, East Lothian.
The book has twenty poems, some from East Lothian, some from further afield. All proceeds from sales go to St Columba’s Hospice.
It was printed with excellence (a five star service) by East Lothian Council’s print unit. Wendy Neill is amazing!
We hosted a daytime and an evening event on launch day. Both were packed.
Many, many people told me how well I had done.
I am not used to hearing that.
There are copies of the book available at the cafe. I am working on getting them online so people further afield can purchase one. Watch this space!
