The Sincerest Form Of Poetry #poetry #poem #booklaunch

Hi again. This is a cheek, of course but at last my first work of poetry will be on the shelves on 30th September. It’s 50 odd pages of high quality verse, from laugh out loud to grab the tissues. Of course it is…

This, therefore is a bit of a random request to see if there are any poets, poetry lovers or simple book lovers who’d like to offer me a slot to pop my book in front of your audience. If you are so inclined then, of course I will happily reciprocate if ever you need the exposure to my gallant and patient following.

If you are interested and would like to read the same, let me know and I can pop you the poems. Equally, any post can have me interviewed, talk about writing poetry (or indeed any aspect), answer any questions or whatever format you’d like.

In terms of when, any time after the 30th would be great but if you’ve a slot to fill before then simply let me know.

Thank you in advance. Feel free to leave a comment or if you prefer a private chat, you can find me on glepard-at-saqnet-dot-co-dot-uk.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Hi Geoff — congratulations on another writing milestone! And yes, happy to host you on my blog. Do you have a time preference, i.e., are you going to stagger your appearances or just blitz them? That will help me for planning purposes. I’d have to go back and see what the last interview looked like. Do you prefer an interview or to just riff on poetry? I’m game for anything.

    Just finished The Last Will of Sven Andersen. Goodness what a read and what intricate plotting among thieves and thugs! I could probably think up some questions for you to answer in the next three weeks on my blog. I was thinking of emailing you about my enjoyment of the last book, but saw this online as well…

    Hi Geoff,
    Reviewing a volume of poetry sounds like a very cultured pastime, and I’d only be too happy to oblige. Right at that point Rosie turned up with what she considers to be pure poetry…roughly half a tennis ball with green fur entrails dangling haphazardly awaiting additional words to somehow describe something not really worth mentioning in the first place. I have wondered lately why we added the pups to the fold when our kids are growing up and out of the “puppy stage” and Lady is just happy to lie in the sun and isn’t constantly demanding our attention. However, there’s such richness in this chaos, personality character, love and even poetry. Meanwhile, there’s part of me that would dearly like to fall asleep at my desk and be left alone.
    Best wishes,

    You didn’t!! You cheeky….

    All right. I’ll Q&A about this one. How do I get one? I’m not sure you’re answering your e-mails.

    All the poems in the book. That way you can decide what’s your fav to Q&A about. I may have misunderstood… not for the first time!!


  16. Sang says:

    Yes. I would like to read your poems.


  17. Leon Stevens says:

    Congrats on your book. As a published poet myself, I can relate to the challenge of reading readers. It looks like you have a good fan base. Keep it up!
