8: Eight-word Poems—proof ordered

After a cursory check of the soft (PDF) proof, I have ordered print proofs, which I hope to have in hand within the next couple of weeks. It feels odd how quickly this one is coming together. Granted, choosing to include all of the poems from this particular writing challenge made that part of the [...]

8: Eight-word Poems submitted for proofing

I have been working quickly with this one. I spent part of today proofreading a printout, then making the necessary edits. I have already uploaded the interior and book cover PDFs for review; the next step will be proofing. I have set the publication/on-sale date for October 20th; I think this will give me enough [...]

ART 65 #5

Just finished setting up the title with IngramSpark and uploading my files. After considering, then abandoning, one small design change to the interior, I was almost ready to upload files when I got a request from the editor of this year’s edition of Spindrift to use one more poem. After giving them the okay, I removed [...]

ART 65 #5: It’s time

It’s time—I will be taking down the draft I posted the link for later today. If you downloaded a copy and have any feedback, please e-mail me. Be sure to include your name as you would like it to appear in the acknowledgments. Thanks! (1 April 2017)

ART 65 #4

  Yeah, I can’t help messing with the current draft, even before any feedback (if any) comes my way. Today’s revisions involved adding an Acknowledgments section, deleting a couple of poems, making a few small edits here and there, and revising the section with all the short poems so that there are two to a page [...]

ART 58 update update

The IngramSpark PDF proof for …but for the thoughts running through my mind was ready for review much sooner than expected. I have approved it, which means it should be showing up in a few extra places online (Barnes & Noble comes to mind), and, as I mentioned earlier, it should also soon be available to order [...]

ART 58 update

A brief update on …but for the thoughts running through my mind. Now that I have a fresh batch of ISBNs, I am taking advantage of IngramSpark’s Indie Fringe promotion to properly set up the book with them under my own ISBN (978-0-9988781-0-2). I anticipate being able to approve the PDF proof by tomorrow, which means [...]

ART 65 #3

I have now lost count of my drafts of This Is Not the Book That Will Save Your Life. I am leaving up the draft I posted the link to a couple of days ago, but I have already made a couple of changes—replaced one or two poems, added another one, fixed a typo. In the meantime, I [...]
