Poem-a-thon - 8th February 2020

On Saturday 8th February, Poets for the Planet was launched, in style and in collaboration with The Society of Authors. They presented Verse Aid: Poems for the Earth, an awareness-raising, fundraising, spirit-raising poetry event, featuring an all-day Poem-a-Thon, alongside a series of eco-themed workshops and other attractions.

From 11am – 6pm they hosted this drop-in, free to attend Poem-a-Thon, where a relay of sponsored poets performed poems themed around climate change. 

J.S.Watts was one of the poets performing in the Poem-a-Thon. You can watch her performance on YouTube by clicking here

Old Light Cover Reveal - This is It!

I have been doing the dance of the seven veils in order to reveal the cover of my new novel, Old Light, and now it's time to share the cover with you.

Old Light is out at the end of this month, 29th February to be precise, from Vagabondage Press. It's  the second book in the Witchlight series and carries forward the story of magic and witchcraft started in Witchlight. Holly has had a year to deal with the family-sized portion of Old Magic she has inherited. Her focus is on the future, but when both The Coven and the past come calling, the future she has imagined seems to be slipping form her grasp.

If the past is truly a different country, it turns out it is a dark and bloody one that shares a border with the present – a border that is frequently crossed.

Holly needs to right a past wrong and lay some old ghosts, without becoming one herself, if she is to come to terms with her present and claim her future.

The novel is available in paperback and e-book formats, ISBN 978-1-946050-20-5 and is available to pre-order over at Amazon

So,

Electric Dreams

"He lies there. Eyes clamped shut. He knows what she is, what she wants. There is no way he is going to look at her, the real her. The dream version is bad enough."

Old Light Cover Reveal - Penultimate Veil

We're almost there. Just one last flimsy strip of veil to go in the dance of the seven veils.

I have a new novel out at the end of this month, 29th February to be precise, from Vagabondage Press. It's called Old Light and it's the second book in the Witchlight series and carries forward the story of magic and witchcraft started in Witchlight. Holly has had a year to deal with the family-sized portion of Old Magic she has inherited. Her focus is on the future, but when both The Coven and the past come calling, the future she has imagined seems to be slipping form her grasp.

The novel is available in paperback and e-book formats, ISBN 978-1-946050-20-5 and I shall be giving a sneak preview of it in Peterborough, tomorrow, 2nd February at 8pm at Samm's, 29 Bridge Street, Peterborough, PE1 1HA. See my events page for further details.

In time honoured fashion I have been sharing Old Light's cover reveal, but oh so very slowly.

So, here's the sixth photo of the new book. The light is very close. Just one last veil to go.

The veils in Old Light are the ones that separate the past from the present, the living from the dead - or don't. Will you see the light ?

Check back here on 5th February to see the full cover and for more details about Old Light.
