Note: A Spring Surprise!

Good Morning Fellow Travellers!
Yesterday was officially the first day of Spring here in SA and, whilst I was unable to celebrate it here in the blogosphere, I received the best present to start Spring off on a fantastic note – Cynthia Jobin’s Poetry book ‘A Certain Age‘ arrived in the post! 🙂

From the art on the envelope, the beautiful cover, the special message and signature from Cynthia (thanks Cynthia!) to the poems themselves, this is an experience! I am so looking forward to reading Cynthia’s poems and feel spoilt with the plethora available to me now in this book. As those of us who follow and read her blog (at know, each one is a work of art and a treasure.

eBooks may be coming but they just can’t replace the feeling of the real thing! See the photos below….

Oh, and a quick note on the weather here – last week (slightly before the official Spring, tut, tut!) – temperatures rose to highs of 28 to 31 Celsius! Anyone for tennis??! :)…..

Do hope Autumn treats all of you in the Northern Hemisphere kindly and to those South of the Equator – Solar Panels linked to air-conditioners look to be must-have items! 🙂

Wishing you all an awesome day…



NOTE: ** SPECIAL OFFER ** Latest eBook Release


Don’t you just love Saturdays?! 🙂  —- TWO pieces of GOOD NEWS! – 🙂

If you look to your right (on the screen!! 🙂 ) or to the bottom if you’re on a mobile, you will see ** Latest eBook Release ** – the eBook ‘Poems About…Life Love Destiny’ – I’m still awaiting the proofs for the printed books (thanks to the SA postal service!) so decided to go ahead and release the ebook first!

For the first TWO weeks – ** SPECIAL RELEASE PRICE ** – (YAY!) 🙂 —- At Least 25% 0ff! —-

this will vary according to where you are in the world and which distributor you purchase from and it may take a couple of weeks to wash through to some distributors so best to BUY NOW from lulu – just click on the book cover on your right – or itunes (see below!).

In this next volume of the ‘Poems About …” series, Rob explores Life, Love and Destiny in his continued search for purpose. As ever, his poems will draw you back again and again to spaces of peace and hope with opportunities for new insights and meanings at each visit. (22 poems)

For those technically interested – it took me longer than I thought to release this as epub doesn’t accept Roman Numerals (who’d have thought?). So it would not allow me to put  ‘II’ in for 2! I didn’t like ‘Vol 2’ – just didn’t do it for me! –  sooo, had to play a little and drop the (Vol II) in all the metadata – ai! Anyway, here it is with all tests duly passed! 🙂

Support independent publishing: Buy this e-book on Lulu.

Both my latest chapbooks – ‘Run Me Gently’ and ‘Poems About…Life Love Destiny’  (at the SPECIAL PRICE!) are now available on itunes – as is ‘Poetry About…(Vol I)’ and two of my longer short stories – ‘Above The Storm’ (a thriller) and ‘No. 322’ (a psychological thriller). Each poetry chapbook contains at least 20 poems

Yes, all shameless, unabashed, self-promotion, I’m afraid – but what can you do? I just have to tell someone! 🙂

Wishing you all an awesome Saturday – and some great reading -whoever and whatever you are reading!
Thanks for ‘being there’.
