  1. Michael,
    I have just looked through the covers of your books.
    As mentioned i am now a photographer, but worked for 20 years in publishing.
    The covers are wonderful! Congratulations.
    I look forward to reading the poems.
    Regards,
    Kim Patrick O'Leary

    1. Thanks Kim. Many of the covers are things I thought of, some were arbitrary and decided without me. I think my favourite so far was "coming ashore on fire", the painting, which was done for the book is by Angela McFall. The design was Bruce McEwen. He IS Burnt Wine Press and does a wonderful job with my stuff.
