... or not. The problem is, I'm not - technical, that is. During this lockdown, I've been trying to learn how to set up a blog, a website(forget it!), create and upload videos to a YouTube channel and generally plan for a virtual launch for my poetry chapbook, The Untethered Space, without having much of a clue. All this while failing miserable to do Zoom quizzes with my scattered family! It's been the odd step forward and odder steps backwards and to make matters worse, my publisher's website (4Word Press) has been hacked by Russian bots! You couldn't make it up.
Anyway (drum roll, please) publication day is Monday June 1st and I will be virtually launching the book on that date at 19.30 British Summer Time. Please join me to raise a glass and listen to/watch a few poems and take part in a light-hearted quiz.
Here's what Gabriel Byrne and Philip Gross had to say about the collection:
These poems are elegantly constructed and delicately lyrical. A haunting and deeply moving collection. Gabriel Byrne, Hollywood actor
One of the time-honoured tasks of poetry is that of lament, and Carol Caffrey’s poems take it on with grace and wit as well as sensitivity... And like the best of elegy, this writing steps through sadness into celebration of language and life.” Philip Gross, T.S. Eliot prize-winner
I do hope I'll see you at the launch!If you would like to buy a copy (£5.99 plus postage) you can order it from the publisher (4Word Press) at this link https://www.4word.org/titles/ or by using the Buy Now button below.
