I have created this blog in order to separate the marketing of my own books from the broader, less self-centred domain of Bluepepper. This blog will function simply as an on-line billboard and portal where readers interested in my work can access previews and purchase copies. I will post reviews of my novels and poetry collections here, but there will otherwise be little or no editorialising beyond the scope of what you are reading now.
For those directed here by one of those flukes of the internet, and who are searching for poetry with bite, your destination should be www.bluepepper.blogspot.com
The Carnival was released in early December 2010. It is currently not available through bookstores as I have neither the money or the inclination to stock shelves that are allowed little sleep with their wards.
I have, however, recruited the services of a library supplier in Australia, James Bennett Pty Ltd www.bennett.com.au, where any interested local libraries across Australia can order copies of The Carnival.
But this is really a portal for the individual reader who may be interested in purchasing a copy of The Carnival. For your convenience I have posted a Paypal link in the sidebar. All copies ordered through this link will be signed by me, unless logistics and the law of diminishing returns begins to dictate otherwise.
If such a point is reached, I will direct interested readers to the second link where copies can be purchased direct from the publisher. This option may appeal particularly to readers in the United States, the publisher being of that particular persuasion, and thus saving on postage for our erstwhile cousins, not to mention the long-suffering though slowly-recuperating O-zone.
