my poetry book – within easy reach

with 13 comments


My new book, within easy reach, is now available.

~

I would like to thank you, the readers of my blog (and my Facebook and Twitter friends), for all your interest and support since I began my blog in 2012! The blog has helped me along the way, developing ideas for my projects, giving me a place to try my poems on a reading audience and giving me a chance to read some beautiful poetry on the blogs I follow. I also love your ‘likes’ and comments.

~

I hope you will buy my book and enjoy reading my poems and seeing my drawings.

For the readers of my Blog, I am offering a chance to win the painting on the book’s cover!  My painting ‘brambles’ is painted in acrylics, size 10″ by 10″, with gallery edges. The painting is from a photograph of the blackberries growing on our lake property, the berries featured in the poem ‘berries in brambles’, one of the poems in the book.

  1. Jane, your book is beautiful. Thank you to Chapel Street Editions for their part in it. The heft and look of it; the texture of the cover–how can one not love holding in in the hands? The beautiful image–you are remarkable, Jane; i had no idea you are also a visual artist! The delightful poems, exquisite in places! To read of goosetongue, minijg, and that “low umbrella of apples.” To be reminded of the “easy pull of berries into pail.” To read this book is to “walk out/in an altered fashion.” I am so happy to have it, thank you, merci, Wela’lin. –allison calvern
