Poetry: The Painted Girl

She was pretty as a picture
The apple of my eye

She would gaze into my eyes
Unblinking
Her mouth curved up at the edges

Dark curls framed her
Pale face
Thick lashes shielded
Liquid eyes

I could stare at you for hours
Wondering
Inspired
Awed by your delicate creation

I loved the canvas of your skin
The pigment of your mind

But how could I love you
When you’re a painted girl?

New Kate Forsyth Releases!

This year, my all-time favourite author, Kate Forsyth (Bitter Greens, The Wild Girl, The Witches of Eileanan) will have five(ish) new releases! (Well, more along the lines of four, but we’ll get to that.)

Since I first read one of Kate’s books (The Puzzle Ring, and it is still one of my all-time favourites) she has only had four novels released, along with a picture book. Thankfully, however, I’ve had all that time to track down her other novels, too, so I haven’t had to wait for another Kate Forsyth novel to read for some time.

But to have four new books released in a single year is very exciting! Christmas will last all year round! And they’re all quite varied subjects, so we’ll get a little taste of everything.

In the order of their releases, Kate’s new books are:

The Wild Girl (second edition)

The Wild Girl 2nd editionOkay, so not exactly a new release, but the new edition is so pretty! It looks like a film tie-in edition. (Nudge nudge, film companies…)

This new edition is released in Australia on March 3. You can preorder it on Booktopia.
