It's all about the storytelling!

Welcome to my first foray into a blog.
 
I realise most blogs have a topic of interest, theme or the like but, at this point my blog maybe quite random as I gain my blogging feet.
 
In this post I will give a brief run-down about my published efforts to date (plus information on where to find them) as well as the up-coming release of an eBook of poetry co-written by  my partner, Kevin, and me - Forming a Picture of You.
 
Tea With Miss Tilly, illustrated by Philip Webb, was published in 2012 by HarperCollins NZ Ltd. It’s a picture book written for 3-7 year-olds. Miss Tilly is the epitome of a storyteller, someone/something I hope survives the techno highway we are accelerating at breakneck speeds down.
If you wish to purchase Tea With Miss Tilly, please follow this link to HarperCollins: Tea With Miss Tilly, by Justine Payen & Illustrated by Philip Webb
 
To read the story Only Fools & Murder I wrote for one of my Massey University papers please follow this link: Only Fools & Murder . Also, my Kiwi take on a Brother’s Grimm fairy tale, The Twelve Dancing Princes can be found here: The Shoemaker & the Twelve Dancing Princesses.Both Noisemedium.com and Goethe-Institut New Zealand have some wonderful stories on their sites – it’s well worthwhile staying and immersing yourself in them.
 
As I said above, Forming a Picture of You will shortly be published ‑ initially as an eBook on Kindle. I will place up the link to the book as soon as it goes live, but until then here’s one of the poems. I hope you like it:

A Tear For You
by Kevin Baddeley
 
I shed for you a single tear
for every day of every year.
And hold you up for all to see
a gift from heaven just for me.
For you’re the hand and I’m the glove
Eternally we’ll share our love.
 
I shed for you a single tear
for every day of every year.
To help you through all mortal pain
and set your spirit free again.

Thanks Jenny. I actually had more fun doing this blog then I expected to.
I have just been on your Tui Cottage site and really enjoyed learning about Orere Point and reading your stories which I thoroughly enjoyed. Fantastic photos with wonderful rhymes. When I tried to access your blog it threw up an error message.

Thanks Wendy, I'm still learning heaps about my website and now blogging. I have found Vistaprint to be really, really straightforward and easy to use, which is always a benefit for someone with not a lot of time.

This is such a lovely poem you have shared with us! It talks mainly about the eternal love that you wished to share with your loved one. Our tear is a precious gift of our Almighty God, we should not waste a single drop. That is why we must shed it only for someone worth our love that is given to us by God. A true love is what we all hope for and I know that all of us will have it, so let us all save our tears for those who are worth it.
