Excitement for Legacy Launch

Legacy cover penultimate

Exciting news!  My publisher, Black Pear Press, has been working hard on my second collection, ‘Legacy’.  I am delighted to announce I received the penultimate edit this morning, and the book launch is now imminent (weeks away, maybe a month or so!).

I was humbled by Lacuna’s success, thrilled it was popular, and grateful for the readership it found.  More, I am deeply honoured that Black Pear Press have seen something in my poetry that has prompted them to publish a second, more lengthy collection.

Legacy sees the publication of some longer poems and a few more personal pieces, but keeps with my style of delivering mostly succinct and evocative poetry.  I am extremely grateful to my editor, Polly Stretton for her dedication and friendship.

I am also grateful to my brother, Damien Davis, for his stunning cover, and to my friend, Paul F. Lenzi; for his support, guidance and kind words (see his blurb on my back cover!).

I am blessed.  Truly.  Thank you all for your support, I can’t wait to announce a release date.


Lacuna at The Ambleside Fish Bar


Thank you!  Thank you to Tony and Andy at Ambleside Fish Bar, proudly promoting the ‘Lacuna’ book launch.  Ambleside Fish Bar is an experience in itself, home to Worcester’s yummiest fried treats.  Every visit is entertaining, as the delightful staff sing songs and make jokes, serving customers with more than a smile.

Tony and Andy are true pillars of their local community, friendly and fun to be around; and proof that genuine gentlemen still exist!

Lacuna is published by Black Pear Press and will be launched in Worcester on Sunday 14th August at Drummonds (The Swan With Two Nicks) on New street, WR1 2DP.  The event starts at 4PM, with a book signing and will then proceed with poetry readings from The Magnificent Mike Alma, The Amazing Alan Durham, Perfect Poet, Polly Stretton, Worcestershire Poet Laureate, Suz Winspear; and yours truly – Kieran Davis (also known as Baldypoems).

And now, I am truly excited to announce a recent addition to the line-up…

My 5 year old boy, Oscar!  Oscar is going to read his favourite poem ‘A Good Boy’ by Robert Louis Stevenson.  I am so excited I could burst!  Come for free cake, stay for the poetry and party after!


Thanks again to Tony, Andy and the team at Ambleside Fish bar, see you all soon!  Best wishes from Baldy x

My author copy of Lacuna arrived yesterday from Black Pear Press!  So excited!  Can’t wait for the official launch in August!



I am delighted to finally be able to share this.  I have been fortunate.  I have been published in many anthologies and magazines over the years, but now…

My debut collection of poetry will be published by Black Pear Press.  ‘Lacuna’ will be available this summer.  There will be a book launch and everyone will be invited.

I am the most excited I have ever been.  Thank you all for your love and support, I can’t wait to share more details and will be sure to keep you all posted on events as they arise.

Keep smiling, best wishes from Baldy 🙂
