I've been busy over the last week or so - not only going along to open-mike nights (see previous post, also published today), but also putting together a new compilation: A SOUPCON OF SHY YETI (the cover of which is above!) The poem, CUPCAKE, which I included in my last post having read it at the open-mike night is also included in SOUPCON which is a compilation of old poems (two re-written), poems from my 2009 collections, as well as a number of poems from both THE DEATH OF LOVE and May 2010s release: DO YETI WEAR PYJAMAS.
Here's a little more information:
A SOUPCON OF SHY YETI...
This is a 48 page teaser for the poetry of Mr Paul Chandler (aka SHY YETI). The poems included in this pamphlet are either older ones that have recently been rewritten or verse from the last couple of years that haven't yet had their chance to shine. There are also almost a dozen poems from Paul's next two collections published here, as a preview, for the very first time...
It can be purchased online at: http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/a-soupcon-of-shy-yeti/8387716, at the price of £3.50 in print and £2.50 as a download.
