If you want a preview of some of the poems in Kingdom Animalia, here are some links to online journal Trout:

Hermit

My Year of the Ant Gardens

and here is the link to a video of me reading The Icon Dies

and the link to more photos of the launch which I hope to add to.

That’s me in the bird mask, Peter (MC & my partner) in the bat mask.  Check out the botanical wallpaper, complete with Linnaean names.

Here is an invitation to a book launch
Animalia Invitation

You will notice (if you click on the link) that the invitation is upside down. No amount of rotating it and saving it will make it appear upright. You’ll just have to stand on your head. I have also failed to insert it into the post properly; all I can manage is the link.  C’est la vie. Please come anyway.

This is what it says:

Janis Freegard hereby requests the Pleasure of Your Company at an
