InkSpotter Publishing unleashes Collywobblers
Thursday, October 30, 2008  9:15:00 PM

by Betty Dobson

Collywobblers is an offbeat collection of humour/horror poetry written by British author Mary Cook and published by Betty Dobson's InkSpotter Publishing of Canada.

A Canadian publisher and a British writer are getting on their broomsticks and launching an e-book of poems on a horror and supernatural theme in time for Halloween. Mary Cook of Lincolnshire, England, has compiled the work titled Collywobblers: Perverse Verse for Guys and Ghouls, and InkSpotter Publishing of Nova Scotia, Canada, is proud to make that collection available to the public.

While working as a school groundswoman at Billericay, Mary earned her first break as a writer in 1987 when she entered a fiction competition run by the Essex Chronicle. Her short story "They Eat the Eyes" was the winning entry, earning her the title Essex Chronicle Writer of the Year.The contest was staged by Valentine Card, the local benefactor whom she still remembers with great affection.
This very minor success made her realise horror was her true calling -- but always it had to be leavened with a little humour. She went on to have many articles, poems and short stories accepted by a wide range of publications.
Collywobblers marks InkSpotter Publishing's third release, following Paper Wings in 2006 and Holiday Writes in 2007. For more information, go to
