It’s just over 6 weeks since I last wrote to you about my first literary adventure and I wanted to share a few updates from The Pink House.
Before I do, I’d like to share a little video with you. A few thoughts on the forgotten victim of social distancing and the ultimate wedding dance; the conga!
The last few weeks have been an exciting time doing my best to become a super-spreader of poems. With the release of Pandemic Poetry: The Covid Collection I was invited to be a guest on Michelle Ward’s radio show, shared a few witty ditties and had some fun being on the receiving end of the questions for a change. Thanks to all of your support, sales rocketed and my “R rate” went up after a surge in downloads and even a few international variants sold as far away as Russia and Brazil!
At the peak of the second wave we went truly viral and my first little book ranked 20th in Amazon Kindle Store’s list of bestselling British Poetry and 25th in Amazon’s Bestselling Poetry Anthologies! Then, I was delighted to see a lovely full-page feature in The Brentwood Gazette reporting on the good news and an article on InYourArea.co.uk too.
Now, in the latest twist of a whirlwind of excitement, Pandemic Poetry: The Covid Collection has been selected as part of Amazon Kindle Unlimited and is hopefully about to reach a third wave of new readers who’ve signed up for Amazon’s unlimited subscription. My eternal thanks to all of you who have downloaded, shared and read the book, your support has been amazing and hugely appreciated. If you haven’t got your copy yet you can download it here. I can’t wait to bring you my next witty poetry collection later this year!
Speaking of which, I recently upgraded my website to stewartpink.com and it’s never been easier to keep up with all the latest content from my radio studio and writing desk. The website now hosts all my latest podcast episodes and you can play or download them there with one click. The latest radio shows, poems, interviews, film reviews and videos are all there plus a new Spotify playlists page featuring great new music from my radio guests. There’s even a page where you can support my work with donations; a bit like a virtual tip jar.

Lastly, and most exciting, you can now see a sneak preview of my first short story available to preorder now! Visit stewartpink.com/books for all the details.
Thanks, as always, for being in my corner and according to government guidelines I should be able to hug you all very soon.
