"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

The Lyrical Laboratory

A couple of years ago, I submitted a poem to Forward Press who were compiling an anthology of Children's Verse. About a year later I received an email to say my Chief Inspector Mulligan poem had been accepted and how many copies of the book would I like to pre-order at the special knockdown price of £14.95 sterling. Being a tight git, I didn't take up the offer.
Roughly 18 months on and now they're offering me the book for £9.99. Vanity has got the better of me and I've put in my order - the list of authors is rather like a telephone directory in length and I've no idea of the quality but hell, I suppose I should get a copy.
To order, go here and you need to quote voucher code FPB1001 when the basket comes up.

  1. I really wouldn't. It sounds like a scam. You shouldn't have to pay for your own poem. Google "forward Press" scam
