Ok – the amount of awesome I need to discuss is a bit daunting so I’m just going to dive in!
The photo I have included MAY be part of the cover design for my upcoming chapbook An Amateur Marriage which (for those who haven’t clicked through yet) is now on early pre-order at $12 from Finishing Line Press. I’ll be doing some additional mailings (snail and virtual) about this soon because it won’t be released until March but the pre-order time period (now until early January) determines the size of the press-run as well as how many contributor copies I receive. If you confirm you order a copy after reading this blog post, I will send you (or someone you designate) one of the last signature, limited edition copies of The Wait of Atom as a thank you.
Speaking of chapbooks, but Fat Girl was just reviewed in decomP. I LOVE decompP the magazine.
And now – not speaking of chapbooks, how about I had one poem publication to let you know about, but then (while checking my list) realized I had four others out there! So here are the links:
- Ode to the Perpetual Loser – H.O.D. (Handful of Dust) pdf file that you can scroll through to find me and some other terrific writers and artists
- Blank Page and Dread – Tuck Magazine
- (Re)imaging - Specter
Then to speak not of my own poems how about the fantastic ones by Elizabeth Glixman up in Frigg where there are some equally amazing short stories by Erin Fitzgerald? See I told you there were layers and layers of awesome!
And now for the work in progress
–and the poem has a commute now!
Feel free to discuss my poem below and/or to post your own works in progress (or link to them). All poems will be removed this time next week.
Hoping to squeeze in a few minutes before heading to a training class to work on some submission packets. Have you guys been sending work out? Working on new stuff? Doing any variation of NaNoWriMo or NovPad Challenge?
Or not reading as much (or writing as much) but storing up new stuff like watching Married in America 2. What is it to be married in this day and age? Even us amateurly married for 13 years could use that as a writing prompt
