|This month we'd like to welcome two new artists to the Lazy Gramophone website:|
In the past I have written for Amelia's Magazine, The F Word, Oh Comely and been accepted on the Royal Court's Young Writers Programme.
The only thing I take seriously in life is my ongoing interest in misanthropy and firearms. I have one friend and a cat. I'd like to keep it that way.

|Art Frederic is an illustrator and occasional writer. His current pen and ink work has been focusing on the relationship between image and text. With regard to his latest series he says: 'In most cases the image desperately needs the text to justify its existence but in some instances it simply adds to the apparent absurdity. It is the absurd that I am interested in, mostly because I believe life to be absurd but partly because I believe that by recognizing it we can better understand the truth and perhaps even come to laugh about it.'|
|Green Dobermans, by Liz Adams|
Green Dobermans, by Liz Adams, is all set to be our next publication and should be hitting bookstores sometime in the next few months.
Liz Adams is a London-based writer and researcher. She has an M A in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia. Her work has been published in several places, in print and online. Her current research looks at the emotions of envy and seduction.
Liz Adams takes us on intimate journeys that we might never see but want to know. From the silver mines of Bolivia to surreal green dobermans in Santiago. New countries breaking open on every page. Moths battling on the light. Here's a brand new voice, a first collection: 'sharp in its own air.'
Having worked with Liz Adams for almost a year now, we are hugely excited by this new release, it is a truly wonderful collection and we have high hopes for its pending release.
|Tastes of Ink Reviews|
Our most recent publication "Will Conway Tastes of Ink" was successfully launched back in march. It is available now in all good book stores and from our online shop.
Some reviews have come in over the following months so we have gathered them together here in one nice tidy list of links. The hope is, that if you haven't already bought and read this amazing book, then after reading these reviews you will do so.
|Upcoming Publications 2011/2012|
The future is bright, for we have a whole host of new projects slowly building momentum...
The Time Project(working Title): This is an enormous collaborate project based around the theme of time. The finished book will include short stories, poems and artwork by 31 writers and 31 artists... watch this space!
Posthumous (Working Title), by Sorana Santos: Long term Lazy Gramophone writer/musician Sorana Santos is busy working on her first publication, Posthumous: a book that will both question and play with the idea of what it means to write a letter.
Fragments/Love Story, Days Without You (Working title), by Zoe Catherine Kendall: Zoe's first book is set to be a personal, raw and risky volume of poetry and prose intercut with imagery.
In fact we have received many exciting manuscripts over the last few months, Stupid Monkeys, by Jude Melling; Guided Tours, By Hannah Stephenson; Alice took a Detour, by Karen Georghiou; and Winos, By William Kerbeck - to name but a few... We hope to bring you more news on all of these titles soon.
|Book Club, by Karen Georghiou|
On the 27th June Karen Georghiou will begin her 'Book Club' - a regular feature in which she will interview various Lazy Gramophone writers about their published works.
The idea behind Book Club is to reveal authors' perspectives on their own publications and so questions will progress according to the chapters of each featured book.
Karen will also be offering you the chance to pitch your own questions via her Twitter page.
Once the interviews have been recorded the resulting videos will be published on our Lazy Gramophone website as well as on Karen's YouTube channel: RAGtelevision.
The first episode of Book Club will see Karen meet Will Conway in order to talk about his new book, Tastes of Ink. If you have a question for Will, simply tweet @minikaren and sign off with the hashtag 'Conway'

We are preparing for our next release in the LG shorts series of illustrations and prose; to be published in a limited edition this Autumn. To start the process off we running a competition for the theme of this 3rd book to be chosen.
