I Ate’nt Dead

Hello everybody! It’s been… almost three years? Seriously? I haven’t updated this blog in THREE YEARS?

Oops!

So where the hell have I been? Long story short: having difficulties. Since the last update, I got a Distinction for my MA (which was nice) and had a bit of a breakdown (which was less so). I’m now diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and ADHD on top of being autistic, which has been helpful and stressful in equal measures, and my writing has been on the back burner.

But no more! New decade, new me! Or rather, new decade, returning to the old me who actually wrote things from time to time!

01a. Overwhelmed

I don’t have a dedicated update schedule for this blog – or, indeed, any idea of what I want to use it for other than promoting stuff I’ve written – but I will definitely be trying to create more interesting content for you in the future.

Thank you for your support! It’s great to be back!

~ Penny

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!

Tuesday 23rd June 2015: Vids and Blogging and Books, Oh My

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.
