My next book—it’s going to be a while…

I have recently compiled a new collection of poems. Titled The Ostensible Sloth of Distress, it contains (if my count is accurate) 67 poems in the usual five sections (plus prelude and postlude). The astute observer will be asking, Wait—didn’t he just publish a new book a few weeks ago? Yes. Yes, he did. The timing has [...]

It’s in the mail!

It is that time of year again—time for Pulitzer entries… As always, I readily acknowledge that, as an unknown, self-published poet, it is unlikely that I will win a Pulitzer Prize. As long as the competition is open to anyone who meets the qualifications, though, I see no reason not to enter. This is my [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
