New Book Ready to Go!

This morning, I approved the IngramSpark proof for This Is Not the Book That Will Save Your Life, and ordered my 10 copies to sell at readings, give out for promotional purposes, etc. The official on-sale date is April 28th; I will post pre-order links as soon as I have them.

In the meantime, I will have the e-book versions to prepare—and I will also prepare a version for CreateSpace, so that I can make the book available through Amazon stores in those territories that IngramSpark’s Global Connect program does not cover. Until then…it’s a book!

Oh, the irony!

Yeah, so I post my response to one journal’s opinion about publication indicating that you take your work seriously, and five minutes later, I receive notification that three of my poems will be published in the 2017 edition of Spindrift, the art and literary journal published by Shoreline Community College. If previous publication schedules hold, it should be available in June. Yeah…

This Is Fifty-three: Just the Words, Man—Published!

The Just the Words, Man edition of This Is Fifty-three is now available!

For now, you can find it at CreateSpace; it should be listed on Amazon within the next few days.

I have also made a proper page for both editions of the book on my website:

The full-color edition is still in the proofing process; I am expecting the printed proof tomorrow, and hope to have everything wrapped up this week. More news when it becomes available. Stay tuned!
