Goodreads giveaway

In happier news, I have now registered a goodreads account and I am organising a giveaway for 5 copies of Anatomy.

If you would like to chuck your hat in the ring for a copy, that would be great, and you can do so here.

If you would like to have a good nose at some of the books that helped make me who I am, look here.

Technical Hitches

Just reporting some technical hitches. Unfortunately, the publishing of the Epub and Kindle versions of Anatomy is going to be delayed by a day or two. This is due to formatting ebooks being an incredibly frustrating job that never quite goes the way you want it to.

The paperback version of Anatomy will still be available to buy from the 4th November, and the other formats will come on stream as soon as possible.

Hope you’re looking forward to getting a copy.


As a supplement to Anatomy, I have produced an abridged audio version of some of the poems with musical backing.

The results have been uploaded to Soundcloud.

I’ve provided a short track by track commentary here.


COMPETITION – Win a copy of ‘Anatomy’

Would you like to win a free copy of ‘Anatomy’?

Well you can by entering this very simple competition.

1) Watch the video below, featuring ‘Summer Saturdays’ from the collection.

2) Try to describe the track by creating a new genre of music. For example, my best attempts are ‘national trustonica’ or ‘tweed ambient’.

3) Post your description to my facebook page or twitter account.

The best effort, as judged by me that I receive before 29th October, 2013, will receive a free copy of ‘Anatomy’.

So, thinking hats on.


As you can see from the press release that is on the front page of the site, 4th November 2013 has been confirmed as the publishing date for Anatomy by Simon Travers.

The book will be available in a short run of print copies from this website and also major online retailers such as Amazon and Waterstones. The cost of the print copy will be £5 plus postage and packaging and payments can be made through this site by paypal.

The book will also be available in ebook format. There will be an epub version which will be available firstly through this site. There will also be a Kindle version. Ebooks will be priced at £3.

In addition to this news, I am also starting to build the Anatomy press pack. As a part of that, you can read a short Q and A about Anatomy here.
