Rescue and Redemption goes live

Rescue and Redemption has just come off pre-order status, so anyone who booked it in shoudl have received their copy by now – Thank you.

Through the pre-orders, this collection, too has reached the #1 Hot New Release status, and it’s such a pleasure to be able to share the image.

Rescue was the collection derived from T. S. Eliot’s Prufrock poem and I think I may have enjoyed working with this poem the most of the three.

Thank you for your wonderful support.

      • I’ve always looked outward, Liz.

        My feelings from earliest days were that I would more likely than not reduced rather than enlarged here at home. Awkward phrasing, I know.

        What I wanted was to get feedback and ackknowledgement from a million miles away from home, so that I would know it was unbiased and ‘real’ and therefore could be viewed by me as helpful or not dispassionately – no relationship or place to protect.

        It remains the case now that I have no easy entry into poetry ranks within Australia, and garner no attention from that scene.

        Always outward and away.

      • I never thought about the bias of place affecting feedback on someone’s writing, but you make a good point. I know next to nothing about the literature of Australia. I should probably remedy that?

      • I mainly have only my own perceptions to go by, Liz. Nothing objective at all, but my feeling is that if I desperately wanted to become accepted as part of Poetry establishment over here, I’d be chasing my tail for a long time, and doctoring my style to meet an ideal that possibly doesn’t exist.

        I’m happier, I think, aiming outwards and seeing what happens.

      • I think you’re wise. What you’re describing sounds like the MFA writing phenomenon, whereby writers revise and revise and revise to make their poem or story please the group, until all of the life is sucked right out of it. There are a number of submission guidelines for literary magazines that expressly say, Do not send us your exquisitely-rendered but ultimately meaningless workshop story.
