Saturday 16th January 2016: A New Announcement

If you saw my micro-trailer, you’ll know that I promised you something today. And here it is:

I’m publishing a new poetry book!

Yep! Following on the heels of “Under the Tree” and “Dark Heart” comes a brand new book. I’ll release more details in a trailer coming 1st February 2016, but for now, here’s the title:

15/11/2015: Good News Comes In Threes

Well it’s been rather quiet and empty here for a while, hasn’t it? I meant to update weeks ago, but what can I say? Life’s been incredibly busy for me recently. I graduated from university with a First, I moved into a new bedroom, and I’ve started a Master’s Degree. But that’s no excuse for going completely silent here, and for that I apologise. On the plus side, though, I’ve got three big bits of news to share with you. So let’s get going!

First of all, I shared on my Facebook recently that I’d written three articles for International Pro Wrestling: United Kingdom (IPW:UK), a Kent-based wrestling company, to use in their show programmes. I’m happy to announce that this has now become a regular thing and in all likelihood, I will be contributing to their programmes for the foreseeable future!

This includes: event reviews (like the one of Future 8 in the second 11YA programme); match previews (like the one for Sammy Smooth versus Tommaso Ciampa in the Just Too Good programme); and focus pieces (like the one about the GZRS in the Supershow 2015 programme).

IPW:UK do programmes at most of their main shows and they’re available free with a VIP ticket purchase or for a small fee at the event. If you’re interested in reading some of the stuff I write about wrestling these days, check it out!

The next piece of good news? I’ve been published!

Zillion Press bought a piece of flash fiction from me for their anthology “Polychrome Ink: Volume II”. It’s a little piece inspired by my own struggles with writer’s block and depression called “That Dreamy Girl”.

The entire anthology can be bought online from the publisher’s website or from various other places including Amazon and Createspace. To find all the purchasing options, click this link to Zillion Press’s Store page and give it a look.

And finally, the big news I’ve been taunting you with for quite a while.

You may remember that for my Final Year Independent Study for my BA, I created a playlist of ten poetry videos. If you enjoyed those, celebrate: I have poems written for five more.

Yes, you read that correctly: I have five more poetry videos ready to be made. But these won’t be going on YouTube! Instead, I’ll be putting the these five new videos, plus the ten from YouTube and some “Making Of” type features, onto a DVD!

Right now, I still have to undergo the filming process for the new videos, so this probably won’t be happening until somewhere around the summer of 2016. I’ll keep you updated on the progress as I start filming and let you know how everything goes.

Oh, and here’s the playlist for the old videos in case you never got around to watching them!

Tuesday 7th July 2015: “Dark Heart” Trailer

“Dark Heart” is progressing well. The book has been formatted and now all I need to do is finish uploading it to CreateSpace and it’ll be ready to go.

Meanwhile, here’s what delayed this blog post yesterday: a YouTube trailer for “Dark Heart”.

I hope you liked it! If you did, please share!

Monday 29th June 2015: Countdown to “Dark Heart”

The build-up to the release of “Dark Heart” seems to be going well!

I’ve been publishing one poem per day since last Tuesday and the response has been good for the most part.

I’ll be posting a new poem on Penny Gotch Poetry every day from now until the publication of “Dark Heart” (with double posts on Sundays!). So keep an eye on that Tumblr, my Twitter feed or my Facebook page!

But when is “Dark Heart” coming out, I hear you ask?

Two weeks from today, or Monday 13th July. Put it in your diaries!

The book is all formatted and ready to be uploaded to CreateSpace, so it’s just a matter of waiting until the release date.

But I can’t just leave you with that, so here’s a brand new promo image for the book combining the title and the image I’ll be using in the cover art:

Hope you like it – feel free to share!

(Not Quite) Word Count Wednesday: 22nd January 2015

Hello and welcome back to Word Count Wednesday!

… what’s that?

It’s Thursday already?

Oh. Well. Oops. Looks like time got away from me, doesn’t it?

But that doesn’t matter. What’s important is that I’ve been writing!

But how much have I written?

3,158 words including my homework! Which is an average of about 451 words per day.

And you know what? That isn’t a bad start for a new year, especially when I’m so busy with university work.

It’s important to be gentle when getting back into the swing of things. And now I’m there, I can only write more.

~ Penny
