Frank Prem (frankprem) | 150 comments Things are moving apace in the production of my next free verse memoir collection, titled: The New Asylum a memoir of psychiatry.

A number of launch activities will be taking place, commencing at the start of November, and I recently had a cover reveal on my web page, which I'm delighted to share here.

Do feel free to take a peek. The link and an article about my involvement with psychiatry is here: https://wp.me/paAqWh-jZ

I really like this cover Frank. I hope you don't mind that I'm putting it here for others to see. The book's not on Goodreads or Amazon yet :)

That's the book's link Frank...


message 15: by Frank (new)

Frank Prem (frankprem) | 150 comments Hmmm, I thought it'd be the best way to highlight 2 different reviews, but I'll put them in individually. I find new ways to do old things, Brenda.

Brenda | 68402 comments Mod
For us to see the particular reviews you're telling us about, we'd need to be friends with those people or they get mixed with all reviews. Our friends reviews are at the top of each book title :) If that makes sense!


message 17: by Frank (new)

Frank Prem (frankprem) | 150 comments It's quite a system!

So long as I've corrected, all is good. I'll try not to be clever like that next time.

Thanks for helping.

Frank Prem (frankprem) | 150 comments On 13th November, my poetry collection about a lifetime spent in and around public sector psychiatry - The New Asylum - had a wonderful book launch, here in Beechworth.

The event was very well attended, and our local Federal Member of Parliament for Indi - the Independent Dr Helen Haines MP was guest reader for the occasion, reading the poem 'Taxi Shuttle' beautifully.

I have a small number of videos of readings posted on Youtube (sadly, not the community choir singing). If you'd like a look (it was a splendid day), check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvfW...

It was a huge day, Brenda - thank you - and really quite wonderful, and it seems that it has been very well received by all attendees as well - the feedback is just lovely.

I'm bushed though. Off to Melbourne now for for some library appearances and will actually venture all the way to Wagga late next week.

Frank Prem (frankprem) | 150 comments A long time since I've revisited these pages!

New Asylum is up to 17 GR reviews now, at $.71. I'm delighted with that, and very grateful to reviewers.

Tomorrow (18th May 2020) I am featuring in The Authors Show podcast, focusing on The New Asylum (15 mintes).

Here is the link if anyone wants to pop across. You will be able to tell when the link is 'live'.
