As My Poetry Book Approaches

The publication of the chapbook of my poetry, by Nordland Publishing, is getting closer, I’m excited to say. I think we may be looking at late August or September. As soon as I know-you’ll know!

It will be titled Heading North. 

Songs of the North is to be a series of books by different poets. Mine is slated to be the second book in the series.

I’ve been staying up late, listening to blues, and writing a few new poems for late inclusion in the collection before the cut-off date. Last night I wrote Canticle and Old Town. They may need a couple of tweaks, but they are more or less completed.

You guys may remember my post about the trials and tribulations I suffered in taking an author head shot? Well Nordland have now posted my author profile on their website:

Andrew James Murray is from the United Kingdom, specifically Manchester. He came to our attention with the first of the Northlore Series – Folklore. His story, Myling, grabbed us and we jokingly asked him when he would have a novel finished. He sent us a chapbook instead. Well, not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, we read it, loved it, and plan to publish it as part of Songs of the North.

Below is a link to take you to the fuller biography on their page, but beware: my ugly mug is there, in black and white to lessen the shock, although the lack of colour may creep you out even more.

Check out some of the other stuff going on at Nordland while you are there. Have a great weekend.
