Looking Forward, Looking Back

A little later than intended, here are my reflections on 2018, followed by my plans for 2019, as regards my writing.

In september 2018, I published a collection of 44 poems entitled “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems” My book includes poems on a variety of topics including nature, the passing of time, mortality and politics.
“The Writer’s Pen” can be found here:

(for the UK e-book edition) and here

(for amazon.com e-book edition).
https://www.amazon.com/dp/1730814883/ (for the paperback edition)
And https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1730814883/ (for the paperback edition).

Later in the year, I was delighted to release the audio edition, which is narrated by the excellent Alex Lee and can be found here:
https://www.audible.com/pd/B07KPN5FCH (for amazon.com customers)
And http://www.audible.co.uk/pd/The-Writers-Pen-and-Other-Poems-Audiobook/B07KPPQ2K2 (for UK customers).

Prior to the release of “The Writer’s Pen” I was delighted to appear on Vancouver Co-Op Radio’s The World Poetry Reading Series, during which I read from my (then) forthcoming collection and discussed my poetry. You can find a podcast of my interview here, http://worldpoetry.ca/?p=13500.

Looking forward, in 2015 I published “Dalliance: A Collection of Poetry and Prose” as an e-book, https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00QQVJC7E/. While a paperback edition was published, the company who produced it is no longer in business and “Dalliance” is, therefore only available in Kindle format. In 2019 this will be rectified by the publication of a Print on Demand (POD) edition, which will be available to purchase from Amazon. Once the paperback is available a note will appear on this website.

2019 will also see the publication of a selection of some of my humorous verses. Again, please watch this space.

Author News for Poet Kevin Morris

I was delighted to receive the braille edition of my collection of poems, “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems” through the post today.

I had emailed The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) on 8 August with a request that my book be transcribed into braille. On the same date I received an acknowledgement of my request and today (as already mentioned) my pamphlet was delivered. Hats off to RNIB for their excellent work!

My previous collection, “My Old Clock I Wind and Other Poems” is also available, in braille from the RNIB, https://newauthoronline.com/2017/08/09/my-old-clock-i-wind-and-other-poems-is-available-in-braille-from-rnib/.

The ebook and print versions of “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems” will be available in September, so the braille edition is the first on the block!

RNIB have provided me with my own personal copy of “The Writer’s Pen” (it is not currently available for loan or sale from them). I will, however contact RNIB with a request that they add my latest collection to their stock in order that it is available to other braille users.

As many of you will know, I was honoured to be interviewed by Ariadne Sawyer, of The World Poetry Reading Series, on Thursday 9 August, https://newauthoronline.com/2018/08/05/kevins-poetry-to-be-featured-on-the-world-poetry-reading-series-at-110-pm-on-thursday-9-august/, regarding “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems”.

I am pleased to report that the interview went well (my phone behaved itself and I dialled in 10 minutes prior to the start of the interview)!

I shall post a link to the podcast of my interview once this becomes available.
