JUNO CHARM VIRTUAL TOUR - STOP 1


My virtual tour for The Juno Charm starts today in Galway at my friend writer Órfhlaith Foyle's blog.

Today is publication day (woo!) and appropriately there is a full moon tonight - the moon features a lot in the book, not just on the cover:)

Órfhlaith says of the collection:

'Your poems play with and worship the ordinary life, yet they also lift life to extraordinary heights through love and guilt, sex and sorrow; terrible grief over miscarriage and the slow growing of new joy that culminates in The Juno Charm itself.'

Go here to see what Órfhlaith asked me about the book.
