My debut collection of poetry We Will Disappear now has a cover image, a thickness (8mm!) and – an ISBN! I’m dizzy. The cover (left) was taken by yours truly back in 2000 – read more about the background to this picture and the author shot (taken by Sean M Whelan) here. The book will be launched at the Melbourne Writers Festival in August, and the Queensland Poetry Festival in September, 2007. More on that as it comes to hand but the exciting news is that the book now exists, if only for a short time, and copies of it (as well as both Barry Hill and Margie Cronin’s books) have arrived at the soi3/papertiger office in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Below are the full publication details, or ‘specs’, as I like to call them. It doesn’t get any more official than this.
