"She believed the world had begun last Tuesday. January the twelfth, to be precise. When I asked her how she came up with the idea, she just shrugged, before looking at me as though it were obvious." – Charlotte Amelia Poe.

48 pages, professionally printed, really lovely thick pages, very tactile and just so nice to hold. Limited first run of eleven copies, which will be numbered. Can be signed on request. More than willing to trade for art/zines/shiny shiny trinkets. I am so, so proud of this, it’s been a year in the making but I think it’s finally paid off.

Very pleased and proud to announce that my collection of poetry is now available on Amazon through Kindle and also, thanks to their new publishing scheme, as a real, physical book! I’ve kept costs as low as I can make them, this isn’t a for-profit enterprise. I will also be making a few copies privately through lulu.com with a different back cover design which can be signed and will be available on my etsy if you are interested in that.

I’m very proud of the poetry in this book, and though it’s only a small volume I think it’s very… lovely. I hope you do too.

In The Wide, Open Air

Charlotte Amelia Poe

Sent to live in the small seaside town of Lowestoft by his mother, Theo sits, grumpy and alone in a small cafe, glaring at his coffee. A world away from his life in New York, at least his demons can’t reach him there.

Enter stage left: Felix. A boy with no sense of self-preservation and a kindness that can’t be beaten down, he spies the grumpy boy sitting by himself and wonders, what’s he so angry about?

A tale of the noise and bustle, the still and silence, running so fast you might not be able to stop, and finally, finally, coming up for air.

Into a Bright Bound, Sea Surrounded Fury

Charlotte Amelia Poe

The world rarely ends without casualties.

A haemorrhagic fever spreads quickly across America, killing almost everybody. Daniel and Seamus both believe they’re the last man alive. This is their story of survival, of the worst humanity has to offer and then of finding love in a hopeless situation.

As the slate of humanity is wiped near perfectly clean, Daniel and Seamus must fight against the worst of it, the dog eat dog of the final days, to try find a life worth living.

A short, intense thriller, with LGBT content and mature themes.

The Laws Of Sympathetic Magic

Amazon: US | UK

“So, what are we doing?” Clint pulls up a seat beside Sam, who just rolls his eyes.

“What we do every Saturday, Croft, we’re Bobbin Watching.” Sam replies, gesturing behind him. Ben lets out a long sigh.

Ben is obsessed. With a boy known only by the name Bobbin. Weeks of coffee shop stalking has gone into this relationship, weeks, I tell you. The only thing Ben knows for sure is that Bobbin is tall, dark and man-bunned, and utterly irresistible. He’s yet to come up with a decent excuse to ask the man out, but with a little help from his friends, that might all be about to change. And with friends like these, who needs enemies?
