I’ve made some changes to the blog, as anyone who’s been here before will probably notice (and if you’re a new visitor, hello and welcome!). You can now buy both my books, Chickens As Pets and Cannibal Delia, directly from Amazon by clicking the links in the sidebar or the covers featured in this blog entry.
Cannibal Delia is a ‘best of’ collection of my poetry and costs less than two quid, which I hope readers will see as a bargain when it contains 48 poems.
Both books are available to buy from Amazon’s UK, US, French, German, Italian and Spanish online stores.
There will soon be an interactive iPad edition of Chickens As Pets (its website has preview screengrabs on the Press page). I’m going through the Apple application process to get it into the iBookstore. It’s ready to go and I’ll update this blog as soon as it’s available.
