It is amazing to think this time last year I only had the smallest of thoughts about looking into publishing a collection of poetry at some point in the future. I self-printed small booklets in the 1990’s and 2008. Today, having only met Jade on Wednesday 13th June 2018 I am around 90 days from the launch of 'In the Palm of His Hand'.
Jade and Aimee at Daisa & Co have encouraged and inspired.
With mood and white boards With pens and paper too, Jade and Aimee have given, Lots to now think through.
The design of the cover, The type style and its size, I think with time needed, To sleep on it all is wise.
It is an exciting process, As my book develops more, This preamble to printing, Deciding and being sure.
The book is likened to a baby, Created, growth and birth, There is great anticipation, Especially if your first.
Jade and Aimee are the aunties, Keen to prepare everything, Alongside when needed, Reassuring and nurturing.
We've talked of publication, The book so called arrival day, And of arrangement of a launch, Akin to a Christening you might say.
I am just loving every moment, And glad to share it with you, Hoping that as we progress, You'll enjoy and be excited too.
