PLANCHETTE NOW AVAILABLE

‘Planchette’ is the spooky new poetry chapbook by Juliet Cook.

If you wish to begin your New Year in the company of obscene tea cups, musty love seats, haunted girls, odd divinations, and suspicious levitations, then ‘Planchette’ might be just the peculiar concoction for you. Read it and find out if you’ll float from the floor, eyes rolling like lost marbles that used to live in the sockets of a dangerous antique doll.

‘Planchette’ contains a series of ten poems in a hand-designed, ribbon bound chapbook. Some of these petite tomes have light blue covers with sandstone-colored innards. Some of them have sandstone-colored covers with light blue innards. All of them have naughty little deckled edges.

The wondrously evocative cover image for ‘Planchette’ was created by Art and Ghosts.

Acquire it for your very own by visiting the Blood Pudding Press online shop:

'It's lovely, lovely dearie. Right creepy and dolly and your cover is TO DIE FOR!

I love your fearlessness, your something at the back of the box, your crawlspace du jour.'

Nicole Cartwright Denison, poet

'Such a wicked concoction of feverish wimpering haunted girls and dreadful spider eggs oozing within your simmering cursing tongue...overflowing with delicious and dirty delights:)

I LOVE it!

I am going to order more for gifts!

BRAVO! '

'MY GOD! I just saw the cover of "Planchette" then it turned into PANDORA'S BOX and I HAD to open it.

I read two poems.

SUPERNAL...NOT YR USUAL SUBLUNARY!

GIRL GOT CHOPZ!

THIS IS GREAT WRITING, JULIET COOK!

'One of my absolute favorites is Juliet Cook's new chapbook, Planchette. Juliet is one of the best poets writing today in my opinion because she isn't afraid to take risks with her work, and Planchette is all about that. Her poetry is SO VIVID and each piece evokes something fresh. Definitely check it out!'

Melissa Culbertson, poet and co-editor of blossombones

'Planchette, the title truly sets the tone for this haunting ten poem collection, as every good little goth knows this is the triangular instrument used on the Ouija board. Juliet does play soothsayer, summoning the souls of the past, the souls hidden in your great grandmother's attic, hidden behind the glass eye of the porcelain doll on the dusty shelf in your great aunt's parlor, and collects all of their pain and wisdom to give a little insight into the future. The book itself is handmade, ribbon bound and is adorned with two little pink jewels. As Juliet so devilishly puts it, "Some of these petite tomes have light blue covers with sandstone-colored innards. Some of them have sandstone-colored covers with light blue innards. All of them have naughty little deckled edges." For all of the canopy beds, spider eggs in doll eyes, snails, ooze and fizz, there is always a very genuine undertone behind all of the Gothic glitz and pale glamour. There is the humanity of the experience detailed in "Cataract" or the reality of being forced to take your medicine in "Stained Bloomers" that really drive this collection.'

Jason Behrends, editor of 'What to Wear During an Orange Alert?'
