Unthinkable Skies

My poetry chapbook Unthinkable Skies is currently at the printers and will be available from 22 March. You can order it from: http://www.calderwoodpress.co.uk/ or if you will be at Stanza Poetry Festival in St Andrews then you will probably be able to buy it there.

The title Unthinkable Skies is taken from one of the poems in the collection and most of the poems feature the sky in some way. Yes there are lots of birds in there but lots of other themes to interest the non-birdwatchers among you.

There will be a launch event at some point and I'm hoping to do several other readings over the next few months, mostly in Edinburgh but also in other parts of Scotland and even perhaps in Manchester and Bristol, depending on opportunities. I'll keep you up to date on these kind of things, though I hope not to become boring about it. You can always check this post here for updates of what I'm doing.

ever since you mentioned you had a chapbook coming out, i wondered what you would call it. an outstanding title and wish i had thought of it myself. i have no idea how to translate pounds to dollars, so i have no idea with shipping too, how much it will cost to bring one over the pond; but if it's not to hefty, i hope i have the ducats to buy one. a new book is always exciting! congrats, juliet.
love, 'pie

Deb, Lisa - thanks

Gillena - great idea!

Robin - my publisher will be seeing to overseas postage costs over the next few days and these will be on the website very soon. I don't know the exchange rate I'm sorry...
