I am totally, really and flat out exited for the first time in ages! My first ever collection of poetry heads off to the printers this week. Those of you with a keen eye will have seen some muttering on Facebook about it, but now I can officially say that it is happening. In addition, I have heard the first musical version of one of the poems from Shannon Hope that will go on the bonus audio disc… very exciting all round!

I have launched a website specifically for the book at www.foryouorsomeonelikeyou.com . The main idea behind this is so that all of you, people I know and like, have the chance to buy your book in advance and at a serious discount. Thanks to the wonders of paypal you can buy online (even if you don’t have a paypal account) and either get the book posted to you or collect it at the launch events (to be announced shortly).

This also means that all my friends from all over the world (yes there is a LOT of you) can finally easily get your hands on a physical copy of the book at a not too bad price (yeah, postage IS expensive!)

For the bonus audio CD, Rambling Bones, Matthew van Der Want, Shannon Hope, Josie Field, Shotgun Tori, Paul Flynn and Rob McLennan have all expressed interest and soon I will be confirming the track-listing.

This kind of launch and promo for a poetry book is, I believe, a first for South Africa so I am very excited to be doing it! I hope you are all too. Please do click on over to the site and check it out and maybe place an order? It really is a very special offer and you will NOT be able to get the audio version anywhere else!

Meantime, head on over to www.foryouorsomeonelikeyou.com and check it out!
Thanks!
