Read it and find out if you’ll float from the floor, eyes rolling like lost marbles that used to reside within 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.
The wondrously evocative cover image for ‘Planchette’ was created by Art and Ghosts.
‘Planchette’ can be yours for only $7.00.
It can also be purchased as part of a Combo Pack, along with one other Blood Pudding Press chapbook of your choice for only $13.00(see Combo Pack listing for more details).

'I love your fearlessness, your something at the back of the box, your crawlspace du jour.'
Nicole Cartwright Denison, poet
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!
People, if you want to own a limited edition of great poetry which will skyrocket in value when this poet begins getting recognized for the original she is (in about eight nanoseconds most likely) contact her on here and find out how to order.'
W.B. Keckler, poet
'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 you 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?'
'The poems themselves are quirky, kinky missteps into a world of eerie tea parties, fingernails, parlor games and blue pills. Think Jeffrey Eugenides’ The Virgin Suicides meets The Velvet Underground.'
from a review of 'Planchette', which appears in the literary magazine 'Prick of the Spindle' written by Jen Garfield, the poetry editor of that magazine.

'You capture the spooky sexuality of the inanimate doll so well'
Debbie Yee, poet
'Read a few last night Juliet, and am amazed at how you manage to make things that creep so lovely. It's going to be very hard to decribe the power you have in a review, but I look forward to the attempt.
Just read the first couple of stanzas of "Omens" again.
Not even sure how to describe the feeling.
Robert Barnett Newman
'haunting, erotic & a little gothic. Made me want to write.'

These chapbooks are so beautifully made, you can tell how much love went into them, and i’ve loved every one so far. And seller is super lovely, patient and helpful! Shipped fast too! Thank so so much (and for the bonus zine!)
I enjoyed this chapbook and will read more by Juliet Cook. I'll likely buy more from this shop, too. The book design was sleek and well-made. Shipping was quick.
I'm in love with all four chapbooks I bought. I keep reading and rereading. Thank you so much for the quick delivery and offering up some amazing and talented writers (including yourself, of course).
Great writing! (you might want to remove the part in the description about putting extra little surprises in the package tho - as much as I love the little book, I was weirdly hoping for a little something extra :P. Jus sayin)
