I’m aiming to bring out the first two Calder Wood Press titles of 2010 next February. They are:
Morgan Downie’s stone and sea, and
Judith Taylor’s Local colour
Morgan gave a very good reading at the GRV on Sunday night, and he included some of the excellent stone and sea poems.
I’ve previously heard Judith read some of the poems in her new collection, and they are very impressive.
The editing work begins next week, followed by the layouts, typesetting, covers and all the other design elements. They should both go to the printers in mid-January, so it’s probably just as well that I’m planning on a quiet ‘holiday’ season. I try to do my publishing in pairs of books, so I can space the work out over the year.
