Hi folks! New address for poetry stuff – updates here will soon become increasingly infrequent(er)!
Long time no post here, but I’m back today to share a new release 🙂
The Yellow Butterfly & Other Stories is a collection of short fiction that brings together some of my previously published and unpublished stories from the last 5 years or so. Here’s the blurb:
Leap into worlds like and unlike our own
A creepy restaurant stalks its customers, steampunk slaves find a new home in the Australian desert, storybook characters come alive to make deals with the Roman God of Sleep and in the future, a synthetic society suffers dark consequences of endless augmentation… all these stories and more lurk within.
A collection of short fiction featuring steampunk, cyberpunk, fantasy and even a little horror!
It’s currently available across a wide range of retailers as an ebook for $2.99 and as a paperback for around $15-$20 or you can enter a Goodreads Giveaway for a chance to win a print copy right here 🙂
Here’s a couple of reviews for VI, very happy that folks have noticed the more personal elements to this one 🙂
No, when I say more personal, it’s not that Capes hasn’t written in detail about his life, travels and growing up in a setting that I can deeply relate to, it’s that VI seems to let the reader in much closer.
Again we find poems about reminiscences to the Italy trip in 2011, which show great longing to go back there, e.g. slow clap, each pale song or mercy, especially the last one appealed to me at once.
Thanks to both Sean and Ulla for taking the time to review VI 🙂
Just a quick note to say that my final poetry collection VI is on sale for the first time since it’s release – the ebook is 99c across various retailers and I have a few print copies left, which I’m selling for $10 posted 🙂
