"When we read, we start at the beginning and continue until we reach the end. When we write, we start in the middle and fight our way out." - Vickie Karp

poetry collection up for grabs
The lovely Scott Pack is giving away a copy of my poetry collection 'The Hungry Ghost Festival' over here, if you'd like the chance to win a copy. This is what he says about the collection:
Each poem contains at least one image, at least one line, that makes you pause, makes you think, makes you want to go off and write something yourself. Jen finds the true poetry in the ordinary, she doesn't force it out or force it upon you, she just shows you the stuff you never noticed and points out how beautiful it is when you look at it differently.
Jen Campbell is the author of the Sunday Times bestselling 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops' series, and 'The Bookshop Book.' She's also an award-winning poet and short story writer. Her poetry collection 'The Hungry Ghost Festival' is published by The Rialto and she is currently writing a short story collection. She runs a Booktube channel over at youtube.com/jenvcampbell
OUT NOW (click for details) signed copies
From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
