Last night (August 5th) saw the launch of Doll House. The book itself will be available on Amazon soon, but last night offered a taster of what the book has to offer.
It was a fantastic evening, with some of my closest friends, former students, and favourite writers and poets. The evening was hosted by good friend (and living legend) Colin Davies, and I’m still recovering from the experience.
Aside from selling books, sharing a couple of excerpts and a brief Q&A, I also shared the following teaser video to give everyone an idea of what the book is like. Please feel free to share this with anyone who you think might be entertained.
It’s getting close to the launch date for Doll House. On Sunday night (Sunday August 5th) there’ll be a launch party with the Pub Poets (£5 on the door) at their usual Bootleg venue on Topping Street, Blackpool.
The guest poet for this event is the incredible Christopher Bowles. Christopher is a wonderful human being, a gifted poet, and a thoroughly decent bloke.
If you like quality poetry from good people, you’ll love what Christopher has to offer.

As usual there’ll be contributions from outstanding local poets, there’ll be the legendary Haiku Death Match, and the convivial atmosphere that everyone always expects and enjoys with a typical Pub Poets night.
However, because this is the launch night for Doll House, my 51st full length title, there’ll also be more going on. I’m going to be there selling and signing copies of Doll House, for anyone who wants to purchase their own copy of my current masterpiece. I shall have bookmarks to give away, I’ll be reading a couple of short passages from Doll House and we’ll also be premiering a short video of the book that gives everyone an idea of its spooky contents.
It’s always a great night with the Pub Poets. This one is going to be superlative and it would be great to see you there.
