Lenzi the Legend

 

Delighted!  I received two recent additions to my ever growing collection of poetry from Paul F. Lenzi.  As Paul’s biggest fan across the pond, I heartily recommend reading any of this wonderful poet’s endeavours.

A prolific and pensive poet, Paul F. Lenzi has written more than twenty books, and pens a hugely popular and successful blog (https://poesypluspolemics.com/).  Paul is a keen advocate for other writers, and has long been supportive of other poets (myself included).  This man has as much love as he has talent (no small wonder, he is widely adored).

And finally, I am delighted to share that Paul F. Lenzi has kindly written the ‘blurb’ for my forthcoming collection, ‘Legacy’ (of which I’ll keep you posted).

Keep smiling and keep writing, much love from Baldy.

When Gods Fade to Myth

 

Delighted, I just received my personalised copy of T.J. Therien’s ‘When Gods Fade to Myth’!  This latest poetic endeavour from Big Smoke Publications will be available soon, and I highly recommend it.

“In his most recent collection, poet T.J. Therien pays homage to the roots of storytelling.  ‘When Gods Fade to Myth’ takes the reader on a journey through history and the imagination, combining poetry and poetic prose to explore our belief in fairytales, new and old.”

Big Smoke Publications

“Most poets are modest creatures by nature.  This is not the case with T.J. Therien, and with ‘When Gods Fade to Myth’, why be humble when you are this bloody great?  T.J. Therien’s poetry delivers madness, subtle sadness, and a certain candour we have come to expect.  Elegance and excellence, pierced and tattooed by a true artist.  This poet deserves praise and respect (and I have bucket loads for him).”

Prize-winning poet, Kieran ‘Baldy’ Davis, author of ‘Lacuna’

It is time to remember: There are no ‘mere mortals’.

And kissing gorgeous girls!  This is the photographer, Andrew Miller’s wife, Karen.  ‘Kazzie’ looks after our children when we are at work and they are not at school or nursery, we would be lost without her, and love her dearly.
