Happy Valentine's Day! - Perfect New Anthology

Happy Valentine's Day my lovelies and lovers! The Emma Press timed the release of their gorgeous new anthology (which includes my poem 'Critical Reading') rather beautifully.

Even the Telegraph got in on the action with a feature yesterday:
www.telegraph.co.uk/books/what-to-read/romance-in-the-age-of-tinder-21st-century-love-poetry/

The book contains some stunning writing from some of my favourite writers, and of course Emma Wright's ever-perfect illustrations.

You can grab a copy for those most midly erotic of peoples in your life over here:

Have a mildly erotic weekend everyone ;)

I Am Art - Thanks to Sam Zuppardi!

Illustrator extraordinaire Sam Zuppardi had a busy night at the York Lit Fest Programme Launch creating some gorgeous pics of the performers.

Here's his (very flattering) version of me and my rambles. 

You can find his other pics from the night over on his blog here:
