This morning, an email from PSAvalon Press – they will be publishing my How the Cyberman Lost his Heart poem in their 2008 issue of The Synthesist !

Apart from the occasional journal, PSAvalon mainly publish books and focus on the 2 areas of: self development and poetry. They say they ‘like it a lot’.


Later this year they’ve got a book coming out by Feminist writer, Caeia March. Think I might check it out.

It’s my birthday tomorrow 🙂

    Congratulations, and happy birthday (seems these comments are getting repetitive. Never mind, it is well deserved)

    Congratulations from me too (for what that’s worth, coming from a non-poet, whose only real distinction is living in the same building as you).

    I trust this makes up for the PMT, and perhaps even the theft of your saddle and wheels.

    I also hope you are in the midst of a hugely enjoyable bidet ‘period’..

    That’s great news. Have a wonderful day!

  10. Thanks everyone xxxxxxx

    So lovely to get so many kind happy birthdays and nice thoughts. Obviously, I will be adhering to the ‘birthday for a fortnight surrounding the actual day’ rule;)

    Lots of love,

    Lydia x

    Lydia, if you e-mail me (the address is on my profile page on my blog), I’ll send you a copy of the poem. I can’t seem to find your e-mail anywhere.

  12. Mrs Nghembou surrogate said

    On behalf of Mrs Nghembou and myself, I’d like to wish you another joyous day within the ongoing b’day festival.

    By the way, I hope you got a card from Mr Paraschou; I think it’s the least he could do, after all you’ve done to immortalise him, as well as protecting him from his creditors.

  13. Hey again Mrs N Surrogate. Yes, another day of joyous celebrations. I even got another present. No word from Mr Paraschou as yet, though I expect to hear from his creditors in good time;)

    No word from Mr Paraschou? That’s gratitude for you.

    Perhaps I could paraschout down from my floor and skilfully manoeuvre, SAS fashion, into your flat, with a carton of Muller Rice…no, wait a minute, I’m on the wrong side – serious rethink required.

    As chance – or perhaps something more meaningful – would have it, I received another letter for Mrs Nghembou yesterday. I was actually tempted to open this one, to see whether it inspired my muse to sing like yours, but in the end I just slipped it into the letter-box at reception as usual. I did start writing a poem, however; obviously an uninspired one…

  15. Confused parachutist said

    Hmm, that was a bit muddled, wasn’t it? I think the procedure I was referring to is known as ‘abseiling’, but, as that would not constitute a pun on the name ‘Paraschou’ there would really have been no point in bringing it up.

    Furthermore, I’m pretty sure that any attempt to parachute from a ninth floor window would simply result in a pile of broken bones and a pool of blood (which has actually occurred adjacent to our building, you know).

    I see my reference to my poem really got your attention…not one of my more successful posts, all in all.
