Crazy Autumn

So much seems to be happening at Cinnamon Press right now that it's hard to keep up. October was jam packed with launches and events - the launch of TAG at The Hootenanny in Brixton (Brixton's only ceilidh pub!) was a fantastic evening (the cover picture is reds not blues, by the way) and other great events at the launch of An Elusive State in Hoxton, the launch of Flashes and Specks in Bangor (standing room only) (alls the colours on these jpegs are weird - but you can see good ones at http://www.cinnamonpress.com/) and two poetry events at the Chester festival.

I also snuck in a week tutoring an Arvon course (first poetry collection with the wonderful Michael Laskey as co-tutor) and several trips to Yorkshire plus a a four day trip to Linlithgow with a group of young people, just to keep October extra busy.

November sees three more launches, so watch this space...
And don't forget the great books that have been around a bit longer from Cinnamon Press - there's an excellent interview with Shanta Everington, author of Marilyn & Me, at http://www.viewfromheremagazine.com/2008/11/shanta-everington-interview.html
Books make the best Christmas presents and they're not even expensive - especially with the great offers we've got at the moment - and if you haven't bought TAG yet, then hurry - it's flying off the shelves.
