“Personal is Political” Trailer

You might have noticed that there was neither a Sunday Scribbling nor a Monday Musing post this week.

And I’m afraid there won’t be a Word Count Wednesday either.

I’m snowed under with university work and unfortunately, I just don’t have the time to write anything.

But I don’t want to leave you with nothing, so I’m going to share with you the trailer for my upcoming collaborative anthology, “Personal is Political”.

Stay safe, and stay aware.

Word Count Wednesday: 19th November 2014

Word Count Wednesday! And how much did I write?

4,680 words, or about 669 words per day!

Which is a little more than last week! Go me!

But that’s not what I want to talk to you about today. No, I’m being a little bit sneaky.

If you read my last Monday Musing, you’ll have seen that I’m publishing a new book.

I’m collaborating with Liam Whear and Susan Wright to bring you “Personal is Political”.

And you’ve probably noticed that I’ve had my poetry book “Under the Tree” on sale for a while.

Well, there are new developments with “Under the Tree”!

I am publishing it on Amazon!

You can get it in paperback now and on Kindle from 24th November (although you can pre-order right now if you like).

So what does that mean for that version down there?

It means that it’s limited edition.

Yes: there will never be another print run of “Under the Tree” with this cover. Consider it Edition 0.

I have only five copies left. After that? You will never be able to buy this version of the book ever again.

It’s your last chance to pick up the original version of “Under the Tree” for just £4 with free P&P anywhere in the UK.

After that? It’s gone!

So if you’d like one of the original copies of “Under the Tree” in its original cover, send me an e-mail at pennygotch@gmail.com and I’ll get one sent to you.

Hurry while they last!

Monday Musing: Press Release – “Personal is Political”

I’ve chosen to do Monday Musing on purpose this week.

Yep: I’m deliberately doing a Monday Musing this week instead of a Sunday Scribbling.

And why’s that?

Because it’s exactly two weeks from a new book release!

Yes, on top of the continuing sale on “Under the Tree”, I’m teaming up with two other writers for a new book!

Music reviewer Liam Whear, new talent Susan Wright and I are bringing you “Personal is Political”.

Inspired by a famous 1969 essay by Carol Hanisch, the anthology is a mixture of prose and poetry by the three of us.

Its purpose? Framing personal issues in a global, politicised context.

“Personal is Political” covers a wide variety of topics. From environmentalism to feminism, mental health to body image, there’s something for everyone.

And through them, it shows just what the title says: how even your identity can be a political thing.

Plus it has gorgeous cover art by the talented Molly Penford.

This anthology is more than just words: it’s a work of art in itself.

The Kindle edition is due out on 1st December 2014, two weeks from today.

We haven’t settled on a price yet, but it shouldn’t be much.

And physical copies should be available shortly after, also for a low price.

Please consider supporting a promising trio of twenty-something writers and pick up a copy when it comes out.

Stay safe, stay aware, and keep an eye out for more information from us in the weeks to come!

P.S. “Under the Tree” is still on sale! Read the review or e-mail me for more information at pennygotch@gmail.com.
