My next two posts are going to focus on my trip to Grange-Over-Sands in late August; with a selection of photos and a couple of short prose pieces that I worked on whilst I was away...
First up, as I don't have a bucket load of photos from the trip to share with you, I'll firstly remind you that I have just recently published the 10th anniversary edition of my 2005 poetry collection, POETIQUETTE.
POETIQUETTE, first published in 2005, was Paul’s eighth self-published collection and his seventh to include completely contemporary compositions. Even back then he was writing his daft yeti verse, but until now POETIQUETTE has only been available alongside its sister volume MUGSHOTS (also recently re-issued), so this is the first time it has stood alone. This 10th anniversary edition contains photos and facts about the book and many of the poems Paul still performs today – these include, BEING COY, CAKE AND EAT IT, HOPELESS ROMANTIC?, I WANT THEM TO SEE ME (ON TOP OF THE POPS), MISTER BEE, RED TAPE, SOMEWHERE IN-BETWEEN and A YETI’S FUR, but many that he doesn’t; at least not yet! So, sit back and enjoy!

Next time, I'll share a little more about my trip away and I also have a new short story for you, that was inspired by the holiday...
PS I began DIRTY OLD TOWN on the 19th August, after a day trip out and completed it the day on which it was posted.
PPS I'm still trying to get a date for the POETIQUETTE show, but the only date I have been offered, so far was a Wednesday in about 3 weeks time - which really isn't long enough in advance to properly prepare, promote or organise a show; so we're currently looking at late October into November.
Dirty old town...
