VIRTUAL POETRY TOUR KICKS OFF XMAS EVE



I've decided to do a mini virtual tour for Portrait of the Artist with a Red Car, my new poetry pamphlet out from Templar Poetry. I have a few poet/bloggers lined up to host me. Thanks y'all.
Sick of all the ice and frost here, I am jetting off to sunny New Zealand for my first stop at the blog-home of the lovely Rachel Fenton, which is seasonally (?!) called Snow Like Thought.
Tune in on Christmas Eve for our chat. We talk about poetic obsessions and Paul Durcan, amongst other things.
HUGE thanks to Total Feckin' Eejit who designed my tour logo above. Thanks TFE!

A great place to start at Rachel's in sunny NZ.Looking forward to you dropping in to Castle EEjit in the New Year.The sun definitely won't be shining but the fires will be lit and you'll be guaranteed a warm welcome to The Peoples Lost Republic of EEjit. Pip pip!
Glad you like the logo!

It's definitely one of my favourite books of the year. I think there's a huge leap in achievement in this collection and it is also one of the most beautifully-designed books I've come across with great paper and French flaps on the cover.

Wow, thanks AL!

I love the cover and all I can see for a credit inside is 'graphics - Paloma Violet'. Who actually drew the pic?

You know, I never did find out. I meant to ask Alex in Templar when I was over in Matlock. I'd love to know. I don't spose Paloma Violet is a person...? Great name if she is.

I presumed it was you who'd drawn it!

I thought all those visits to the Louvre had paid off and you had designed the cover too. The inside, however is TOTALLY original!

Would that I could add designer to my talents! No, they called in the pros and it just so happens I LOVE it!
Nollaig shona Pat and Rachel.
