Life Is Full Of Coincidences!

On 26 June, I published a post in which I link to a podcast of a discussion between 2 blind poets, Giles L Turnbull and Dave Steele, https://newauthoronline.com/2018/06/26/writing-blind/. As you will see from this post on Giles’s blog he and I both attended University College of Swansea (at the same time) and we both worked as civil servants in London, http://gilesturnbullpoet.com/2018/07/01/i-spy-with-my-little-eye-something-beginning-with-a-poet/.

Life is certainly full of coincidences as is demonstrated by Giles and I bumping into one another online! You can find Giles’s debut pamphlet, “Dressing up” here, https://www.cinnamonpress.com/index.php/products-listing/product/247-dressing-up. Having read the collection I can wholeheartedly recommend this little book.

“Refractions” to be made available in Braille

I was pleased to learn from the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), that my collection of poetry, “Refractions” will be made available in braille. Only a tiny percentage of print titles ever make it into braille. Consequently I am pleased that RNIB have agreed to transcribe “Refractions” so that I and other readers of braille can access it. My previously published collections of poetry, “Dalliance” and “Lost in the Labyrinth of My Mind” are already available in braille from RNIB.
For details of how to obtain my books in print or electronic format please see my “About” page, https://newauthoronline.com/about/. To contact RNIB please go to http://www.rnib.org.uk/.
