Braille Editions of My Books

As a registered blind person and a user of braille, I believe that my books should be available in accessible formats, including braille.

My Old Clock I Wind” is available in braille for loan or sale, from the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

To order please email library@rnib.org.uk, or call RNIB on 0303 123 9999 (quoting order number 25870603.

Lost in the Labyrinth of My Mind” is also available in braille from RNIB, and can be ordered (as above), by quoting order number 25686204.

Due to the Corona virus, the RNIB transcription service is not currently accepting orders for the production of braille books. I am, however working with a private transcription company arranging for my recently released poetry collection, “Light and Shade” to be transcribed into braille.

If you are interested in obtaining “Light and Shade” in braille, please email me at kmorrispoet (at) gmail dot com, putting “Light and Shade”, Braille edition in the subject line of your message. (My email address is rendered thus in an attempt to defeat spammers).

All of my books are also available, with text to speech enabled, from Amazon, which ensures they can be read by those who are unable to read print.

“Refractions” is Available in Braille

On returning home yesterday evening, I was pleased to find that the postman had delivered a copy of my latest collection of poetry, “Refractions” in braille.

“Refractions” is now the third of my books to be available in braille, the others being “Dalliance” and “Lost in the Labyrinth of My Mind”.

As a braille reader, its important to me that my work can be read by other users of those peculiar dots known to followers of the black arts as braille …!

“Dalliance; A Collection Of Poetry And Prose” Is Now Available In Braille

On returning home yesterday evening I was excited to open a package from the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and find it contained my book, “Dalliance; A Collection Of Poetry And Prose” in Braille. Although “Dalliance” is available as an ebook with text to speech enabled, allowing visually impaired people to read it, I wanted my own copy in Braille and requested that RNIB transcribe “Dalliance”. It is a wonderful feeling to hold a braille edition of “Dalliance” and know that the book will be made available for other Braille readers to borrow.

RNIB advise that “Dalliance” will be added to the library catalogue, (http://www.rnib.org.uk/services-we-offer-reading-services-rnib-national-library-service/library-catalogue). This does not appear to have happened yet. It is however early days and I am sure the book will soon be available for RNIB library members to access.

(”Dalliance; A Collection Of Poetry And Prose” can be found on Amazon by visiting http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dalliance-collection-poetry-prose-Morris-ebook/dp/B00QQVJC7E. A print edition is also available from me. For enquiries regarding the print edition please email newauthoronline (at) gmail dot com).
