The Comforter, the debut poetry collection by Helen Lehndorf, is back from the printer and is ready to be launched! (It also has its own proper page on this website now: http://www.seraphpress.co.nz/the-comforter.html

It's looking gorgeous, resplendent in its Sarah-Laing-designed cover, featuring embroidery by Melissa Wastney. (And that's only the start – for the full effect you need to see the back cover, cover flaps and inside cover!)

Because Helen lives in Palmerston North, we're having not one but two launches — one in Palmerston North and one in Wellington.

The Palmerston North launch will be at the Palmerston North City Library on Friday 2nd December,  beginning at 6.30. There will be refreshments and general book related frivolity. All welcome!

The Wellington launch will be on Saturday 3rd December. Because it's at a private home, email me for the details if you want to come.

Copies of The Comforter will be on sale for $25 at both events (cash or cheque only).

The latest Seraph Press book is just about to go to print! And here's a sneak peek at the gorgeous front cover:
The cover was designed by the super-talented Sarah Laing, and the embroidery is by Melissa Wastney.
The Comforter will be out at the end of November, and we'll be launching it early December. If you want to pre-order, email seraphpress@paradise.net.nz.
