So, it was summer 2017 . . . and I had this random idea pop into my head, suggesting I put together a poetry collection to raise money for charity. (Eventually I would decide our charity would be MAKE A WISH, as the Leeds Author Event is raising money for this charity.)
In September I started gathering poems to go in the book. Now, 28 authors later and we’re finally here . . . PUBLICATION.
You can read poems by some of your favourite authors including Anna-Maria Athanasiou, KA Hobbs, Claire C Riley, Audrina Lane, Lisa Hobman, ES Carter, Charlotte Hart, Andie M. Long, Eleanor Lloyd-Jones and many more. Some of our authors are published for the first time through this publication and are very excited and nervous to discover how it is received.
However, I am so happy with how this book has been received so far. In fact, I am thrilled. From small acorns and all that.
You can help support our fundraising efforts by one-clicking “Poems to My Younger Self” on Amazon.
OR, I will be selling this book in person at the Leeds Author Event on March 3rd, 2018 and you can pre-order your copy here (for pick up in Leeds only): CLICK HERE
I have no doubt this will be a roaring success and it’s been wonderful to organise something like this again, with such a supportive bunch of people!
