Let’s have some good news:
First, I’m very happy to announce that my fourth poetry collection* will be published later this year by Mākaro Press. Stand by for more details over the next couple of months!
*Following Boat People, All Blacks’ Kitchen Gardens and Men Briefly Explained. Copies of all three are available from me, and Men Briefly Explained is also available from Amazon and from the publisher.
Second, I’m also happy to say that Shortcuts: Track 1, the anthology of six novellas edited by Marie Hodgkinson that includes my novella Landfall, won “Best Collected Work” at this year’s Sir Julius Vogel Awards – and The Ghost of Matter by Olivia Cade, one of the other novellas in the anthology, won Best Novella. Congratulations to Olivia, Marie, and Paper Road Press!
And third, I’m also happy to see that Saradha Koirala’s new novel Lonesome When You Go is due to be published shortly by Mākaro Press. A few years back, I was in a writers’ group with Saradha, and I heard some of the early drafts of this novel. It was good then, and I’m looking forward to reading the final version. You can help make sure it gets the print run it deserves by supporting the Lonesome When You Go PledgeMe page – it’s a great change for you to preorder the book, or go for some of the bigger rewards!
