Poet’s Life: Onwards and Upwards June 2019


Kate Brumby, Book Tour 2019

I have had a wonderful tour with my debut poetry collection, 'In the Palm of His Hand'. Since it’s launch on 19th March 2019, I have delivered 14 talks and had 7 book signing events.


During talks alongside poems from my collection I share some that have yet to be published. I aim to provide a balance of humour and food for thought to entertain and inspire others.



My Comments Book contains some lovely encouraging feedback...


“Very enjoyable afternoon – interesting setting and thought-provoking poetry."


“Thank you. I have read your poetry when I have needed some help."


“Thank you for a special pleasant afternoon. So many poems struck a chord or gave a challenge."


“Love your style and the stories you tell produce such vivid imagery."


“Inspiring poetry delivered with a human touch."


“A very moving and thoughtful poetry book of ups and downs of life and how we deal with life through the faith of God."


“What a lovely inspiring talk and such varied subjects. A natural flare."


“A very different evening with entertaining poetry reading by an amusing poet. Very enjoyable."


“This afternoon has wetted my appetite to read the book. Congratulations – looking forward to the next one."



The writer of the last comment will be pleased to hear that my next book, 'His Guiding Hand – a Memoir of a Poet' will be available mid October 2019. I have brought together over 120 poems within the telling of events of my life so far.


I am delighted to be working with Daisa & Co again. I also have other books planned including a resource for people needing help following loss – be it bereavement, employment, or other life event causing grief. I hope to have more news of this in the Spring of 2020.


I hope to also have news of the launch of 'In the Palm of His Hand' as an Audiobook very soon. In addition to writing books, I am looking at hymn writing and the production of greetings cards and inspiring posters.


To quote the title of the last section of His Guiding Hand.... 'Onwards and Upwards!'
