When it arrives in the post

May 31, 2017

This Little World

A couple of weeks ago it arrived – my precious! My debut poetry collection, This Little World – published by Doire Press.

So, I thought, THIS is what the end result is. Yet not quite the end, perhaps, because there are reading events to come.

And, what about the poems that are not in here? When the fuss has died down, it will be time to revisit them. Or maybe, put them away.

And, Oh lor’! the difficult ‘second album’.  Time to start scribbling in the notebook again – in between bouts of list-making and invitation-sending.

In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy these moments. I’m proud of this book, and proud of myself for getting this far. Grateful too, for the support and encouragement I received from other writers, friends and family. And so thankful that Lisa & John at Doire Press saw something in my work that made them want to take that chance.

Speaking of invitations: if any of you happen to be in the the vicinity of Galway City in a few weeks – drop by for the launch.

You’re invited!
