MWC Poetry Anthology Released
« on: March 31, 2014, 03:18:41 PM »
As announced on the anthology thread . . . it's been released!

Whay haaay! ;D

Yippee!

Fireworks! Corks popping. Tablets taken to prevent the shakes now that it is finally done.

Thank you everyone who contributed but special mention to our own members who did stuff above and beyond the call of duty despite several annoying glitches, hold-up and gremlins.

ME cos I did loads. Tom cos he did loads too and Heidi who came in a saved the day for the epublication. It tried to beat us but we won in the end. ;D

I just had to paste this in from the other thread to make the thread complete:



As the Kettle Wolf-Whistled has now joined the ranks of published works with those of Shakespeare, Rumi, Tennyson, and Nick Daws.  A brilliant anthology of the poetry of MWC –

eclectic, imaginative, sometimes stunning –  these poetic works track a wide variety of subjects, styles, points of view. Whatever your bent may be - humour, drama, tragedy, sharp and witty observations, meditations, these and more await you.  

 

The paperback version is available online through all of the major retailers at the suggested retail price of $19.50, but may be ordered through Lulu.com, our printer, for the discounted price of $9.75

 

The ebook version is available for $2.99.  Currently available only in PDF format, we anticipate offering the ebook version in epub format in the fullness of time.

Why do you have to wait?
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Tom, he was on his way to bed as usual.

All should note that HUGE kudos in respect of the anthology are due to Tom and Sio who put in an immense amount of work to make this a reality.

With all due respect, the kudos for the immense amount of hard work go to Sio, as well as for the creativity, perseverance, and general problem solving talents.
