Editing and design are in the very final stages for my new collection, The First 30 and other poems. This book brings together The First 30 poems I wrote to celebrate the birth of our little lost shark and a bakers dozen of love poems written for my wife, my family and the city of Brisbane. I was ecstatic when I saw the cover design (by the incredible Benjamin Portas), which is taken from a photo of T.H.E. Nunn & I curled up on the bed, so thought that I would share… Of course, I would love to hear your thoughts!
Book launch details are a little way off, though, I will have the book with me when I travel to Geelong for Poetry & Conversation on Sunday August 12.
Happy Friday to you all!
