Aren’t these gorgeous? Okay, some context. I’ve been so busy with all the hype around my ghost horror novel, The Blue Man, that the release of my full 80 poem collection, A Model Archaeologist, has been sidelined. But not now! Look at these lovely casebound hardcovers that came in the post last week – one for me and one for legal deposit at the British Library. I’m thrilled.

A Model Archaeologist was first released by Eyewear Publishing in 2015 as a 25 poem pamphlet (20 of those on the theme, 5 non-themed for range). I got the rights back after 5 years, so here is the full 80 poem themed collection as I had originally intended it. Hardcover £9.99 and Kindle eBook £1.99…or free on Kindle Unlimited.

Here’s the blurb:

Archaeologist by day, glamour model by night.

These 80 poems playfully explore the uncertainties of an archaeology graduate entering the workforce in an uncertain economic climate. A Model Archaeologist comprises a series of lyrical anecdotes using poetic license to turn lemons into lemonade. The collection can at times be deceptively simple, show subtle humour and have a self-deprecating edge of satire, reflecting the naiveté of youth.

A Model Archaeologist has been released to a flying start: it has reached #6 on Amazon’s Top 100 Hot New Releases for British and Irish poetry!
