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.

Raggedy Man (for Paul F. Lenzi)

Raggedy Man,

tatterdemalion,

mischief maker,

total rapscallion,

the village, verily,

better for his visit,

erstwhile smile,

his laugh – exquisite!

 

 

Written after reading Paul F. Lenzi’s ‘Raggedy Man’ from City of Pawns (ISBN 9781492330523)

 

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.

Atlas of Clouds

I am so excited!  There are many poets that I openly admire, but few that I worship like Paul F. Lenzi.  When one reads Paul’s poetry, it is no small wonder his website (https://poesypluspolemics.com/) has over eleven thousand followers and has received more than a quarter of a million page views.

Paul is not only a gifted poet, but a kind and considerate advocate for many other writers.  I am blessed to be among those he has actively encouraged and supported.  People like Paul (and Polly Stretton) have made me a better poet and given me opportunities I would not have imagined possible.  Heck, I write good poetry because I read GREAT poetry, you can read some by getting your hands on ‘Atlas of Clouds’ or any of the other superb collections from Paul F. Lenzi: https://www.amazon.com/Atlas-Clouds-Chapbook-Paul-Lenzi-ebook/dp/B01M6E60S5

Best wishes from Baldy

Sure, you can get it on Amazon too, but I’d love for you to buy directly from the publisher, Black Pear Press.

Edited by the remarkable Polly Stretton, and sporting a blurb written by the legendary Paul F. Lenzi, Lacuna is sure to delight lovers of poetry.

Thank you to all for the continued support.

Doing the ‘Baldy-boogie’

20160916_172031

Hooray!  Guess who just got their hands on two brilliant collections of poetry from the master, Paul F. Lenzi?  No prizes – it is obvious from the picture!  Yup, Baldy is doing his ‘dad-dance’, the infamous ‘Baldy-boogie’ (a performance which is forbidden in public by his loving wife and children).

Paul F. Lenzi is one of the most talented poets I know, someone I admire and respect.  I urge you to visit his poetry blog, https://poesypluspolemics.com/ and follow his links to grab a copy of your own.

Keep smiling and keep writing, much love from Baldy.
