for a short time only

"Around the Corner from Hope Street" by Gwyneth BoxI’m going to be making my books available to download free from Amazon for a limited period. The first to be available will be Around the Corner from Hope Street, a poetry collection illustrated by graphic artist Lance Tooks, which will be free for the five days from Wednesday April 13th until Sunday April 17th.

Hope Street is a collection of independent poems that can be read sequentially to reveal a narrative told from the point of view of a single female narrator; the poems deal with themes of love, alienation and isolation, recovery and renewal.

Here’s a video in which I talk about the narrator of Hope Street:

If you download the book and like it, I’d really appreciate some feedback. After the promotion, Hope Street will still be available to read free via Amazon’s KindleUnlimited programme, at least until early July.

  1. A nice way to let people dip into your work. Enjoying ‘Feeding the fish at Apple Orchard Bridge’. It’s the Kraken I like :-) It made me think of a quote I stumbled across yesterday…

    “What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams.”
    -Werner Herzog


    1. So glad you’re enjoying it – and appreciate you taking the time to say so, too!

      Love the Herzog quote, which puts me in mind of A A Milne writing about the picture of the Pacific Ocean in his atlas: “The deep ultramarine terrifies me. I tremble for a ship which is passing over it, and only breathe again when it reaches the very palest blue.”
