Neater, Sweeter, generally polished up

This post is simply to let all you regulars know that I’ve updated the menu’s etc of the blog. Nothing much, but you can find your way around a little better now.

I have even put on there a few poems that were put on display in Waterstones LiverpoolOne as promised (okay, okay, LONG overdue, I apologise, but I have been more than busy over that last few months)!

Nabbed poem

For those of you who are following me on twitter ( @poet_hide ) you’ll know
that my some of poetry has been up in Waterstones Liverpool One.
I visited to take them away today, and the artists’ contact said to me that
“My Rainbow Died Today” had disappeared from the display board the other week.
Well, it is a compliment, that someone liked it that much that they took it away, but
I did start wondering about why. Quite frankly, I still don’t know. It’s publically published
both here and in Waterstones, so I know I’m copyrighted in my own right.
If you are the nabber, you have an already mounted print of the poem, so frame it, hang it up
and enjoy!

That Friday Feeling

The poems are chosen.
The placement decided.
The relevant people seen.
The date is set. Put 22nd September in your diaries!

For one month, my work can be seen at Waterstone’s bookstore Liverpool One.
I cannot explain how excited this makes me! I actually wanted to go up to random people in the centre and tell them I will be on display at Waterstone’s. I am not that kind of person.
So, if you’re up this way, stop by, take a look, buy a book or two and stop the monstrous cheapo online giants from ruining our high street!
Plus, you will be able to read the pieces that didn’t make the display right here on the blog from next week!
Until then, happy writing and happy Friday!

New Newsy Stuff!

Well, it’s been a really busy few weeks since I last posted!
Firstly, that exciting bit of news I had on the last post, that I wouldn’t tell?
Well, it’s an opportunity to publicly display some of my poems in a large, local bookshop. I’m going to meet the folks organising it, in a couple of weeks to discuss the what/where/how’s of it all. I will keep all you good bloggists out there updated each step of the way!!
Needless to say I am excited and terrified at the same time!!

Secondly, a new blog, http://ohmygoshhaveyouread.wordpress.com/ by my friend Sefa, et al.
The lending library is aimed at members of your church, Jubilee Liverpool (http://jubileechurchliverpool.org/). We need your help though!
We need your Suggestions, book lists and commentaries/resource guides/motivational guides by your favourite Christian authors/speakers/writers.
We hope to be able to read and review them at some point and put them up on the blog where possible. The aim is also to be able to put these into a lending library
To do that, put your suggestions as a comment on the blog(s), with details of title author(s) and ISBN.
