Thank you so much for your great response to my Final Year Independent Study videos. I have tentative results for the project: it looks like I have a First, and I couldn’t have done that without you.
Haven’t seen the videos? Not a problem! You can check out the playlist right here.
And every single one has closed captions, so they should be accessible to you even if you’re D/deaf, Hard of Hearing, have auditory processing issues, etc.
I hope you’re also happy to hear that I’m working on five new poetry videos that, together with the ten I’ve made, will be going onto a DVD! I don’t have even a tentative release date for that yet, but I hope to have that available for you before the autumn.
The DVD will come with the ten poetry videos from YouTube, five new poetry videos never before seen, and hopefully a video or two explaining my writing process and giving some trivia about the poems and videos themselves.
But there is something I do have a release date for: my next poetry book!
If you didn’t already know, I self-published a poetry book called “Under the Tree” early last year and put it on Amazon in the late autumn. If you’re interested, you can check it out here.
And I think it’s high time that I followed up with a sequel!
I don’t want to give too much away because I’m not going to be publishing it for another three weeks. But I’m going to share the title with you today: “Dark Heart“.
And here’s another treat for you! I also run a poetry blog called “Penny Gotch’s Poetry” where I give away my works for free.
Yes, you read that correctly: free poetry!
And in the build-up to the publication of “Dark Heart”, I will be posting a new poem there every single day until release day.
That’s 21 poems absolutely free so you can try my work before you buy it.
I hope you enjoy them and I can’t wait to share the new book with you.
