My long term aim is to have the best of my work floating around and available beyond my lifetime. (d.o.b. 11 December 1939. d.o.d. yet to be determined. Hopefully when I have finished my next book - or the one after the one after.)
Encouraging this conceit are a couple of events which lead me to believe I have something worth sharing. One of my poems was bracketed between Donne's "Ecstasy" and Blake's "Tyger" by Patrick Wymark from the stage of the Old Vic.
The BBC purchased 7 poems to be used within "PlaySchool" (at the time I was Isabel Reeves). I have 2 non-fiction works which have provided positive feedback from viewers.
I have no illusions. My work, so far, does not have any appeal for a wide audience. Add to this, in the past, my eagerness to publish before I had sufficient appreciation of the publishing and marketing side of putting one's books 'out there'. (I am working on this.) When done to my now higher expectations, I will add to my Amazon collection.
I look upon purchases after my demise as a legacy for a much loved granddaughter.
