AT LAST: Jack’s Poems are in print.

Collecting Cobwebs, Gathering Brambles cover imageHaving wished for some time to see Jack’s poems in print I am pleased to announce the publication and launch of “Collecting Cobwebs, Gathering Brambles” on Saturday 17th September 2011 at Stafford Arts and Book Festival.

We can all relate to the poems and verse by Elizabeth Leaper and her late uncle Jack Williamson that make up this collection. With their subject matter deeply rooted in a common heritage, sense of place, people and the natural world the two parts complement each other perfectly. Often amusing and sometimes poignant, this collection is above all thoroughly readable.

ISBN  978-0-9547010-2-4

Price:  £4.99 (plus p&p)

The net profits from the sale of this book will be donated to charity.

Available to order now from:

Silverburn Publishing: www.silverburnpublishing.co.uk

To order email: enquiries@silverburnpublishing.co.uk

Barking At Nothing cover image

I’m sure Jack wont mind if I interrupt normal service to announce the arrival of my own book of poems for children.  The book is being sold in aid of a children’s charity, The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust in Staffordshire, UK.

With strong rhythms and rhymes the poems look at life from a child’s point of view and are sure to be enjoyed by young children, their parents and grandparents alike. They just ask to be read out loud. A final section on Things To Do, with ideas to encourage children to have a go themselves, will make the book a useful classroom tool for Primary School teachers.

The book will be published on 1st June 2010 and orders are being taken now. Please see my website for further information and to place an order: www.silverburnpublishing.co.uk  

Normal service will be resumed next time!
