So my newly published (January 2017!) poetry collection, Chemotherapy for the Soul, arrived in the post today from Canadian Publisher, Fowlpox Press. What a lovely surprise waiting for me when I got home from my day job!
I love the glossy black cover; it fits with the tone of the collection, which deals with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. The full colour illustrations fit the theme too – check out ‘Chemotherapeutic waste’ picture below:
I actually wrote these poems in 2012, and submitted them to publishers in 2013. After holding onto them for 3 years, Fowlpox gave me an acceptance in September 2016. Just goes to show that even in the slow world of publishing, patience sometimes pays off!
