A Music Box of Tranklements
To date the Kates Hill Press has published over 50 books by 30 different authors. The project to provide a platform for West Midlands writers continues with this new book Music Box of Tranklements. It came about after a suggestion by S.G Grey one night that the Kates Hill Press should produce an anthology of works by its authors. In 2014 Barry Harper sent in a piece about the music scene in London in the 1960s. Greg Stokes thought of one of his own old stories and of his conversation with Steve Grey. He asked the Kates Hill Press authors for pieces about music, musicians or youth culture. Encouraged by the response, Music Box of Tranklements has been the result. The collection introduces three new authors; Barry Harper, Neil Morris, and Joanne Webster. This collection includes stories, poems, songs and plays taking the reader across the music scenes of London, Liverpool and the West Midlands as well as glimpsing life on the road. Music Box of Tranklements is testimony to the depth and range of talent among West Midlands authors. More books in the Tranklements series will follow, and more new writers.
