Happy 257th Birthday, Mr. William Blake!

The Poet and the Flea

Happy 257th Birthday, Mr. William Blake!

And Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

I can’t believe it’s been two years since I posted the first five pages of The Poet and the Flea to this blog! Thank you for all your patience — I know how difficult it is waiting for new pages. 🙂 My main objective is to finish volume one (95 pages) before summer 2015 and, if I decide on self-publishing, premiere the printed book at SPX (Small Press Expo) in September.

In the meantime, here is a long awaited sneak peek of new pages…

(Please note, I’m not very satisfied with these scans and need to redo them!)

Many thanks and kind regards,
