This isn’t so much a blog post as it is a wee boast…
With everything else DorkyDad had going on last year, he could have been forgiven for not putting pen to paper even once.
But somehow in among it all he found time and energy to pull together a full-length poetry manuscript and – joy of joys – it was accepted for publication.
Slow Walk Home is now available from Red Squirrel Press – a fabulous Scottish publisher.
If you’re in the UK, you can buy it directly through the website. US pals, you can drop Red Squirrel a note through the website to arrange international shipping. Aussie pals, sit tight for a couple of weeks and we’ll have some copies arriving in Hobart shortly.
If we can get our act together there might even be some kind of celebratory launch event. Watch this space – and make sure you’re following the Young Dawkins Poetry page on Facebook for details.
Now, don’t mind me, I’m just off for a proud little happy dance, and another look at that beautiful cover.
