A decision whether to launch my forthcoming collection 'Swimming with dolphins'
or just  let it go will have to be made soon.  Of the thirteen books so far only seven of them
have been launched.  'Trim Looking Back' wasn't launched yet it ran to a third print  and it is 
still being requested, in fact nearly three hundred copies  were ordered before the book appeared.
However, seeing that this is poetry and that it is being published by a reputable publisher 
it might seem fair to have a launch.

  1. Go for the launch, Tommy! Just don't clash with a Boyne Writers meeting.
