I’ve always wanted to run a book and coffee shop. Don’t we all?  An impossible dream since the bully boys Waterstones has cornered the market. The last independent shop in Canterbury bit the dust some years ago. 

So I’ve decided to create a book page for the magazine where poets can display their new collections. I became quite ambitious by deciding to up load front covers and blurb which of course is causing a great deal of tutting on my part.

I’m amazed at how many collections some writers produce. Not just that they are able to find publishers but the sheer volume of their written output; makes my second book look rather modest.
