My Book & Publishing Surprises
My new chapbook from Main Street Rag Publishing is out, Song From the Deep Middle Brain. You can still order it through their website (under new releases) or through me! I was offered a book editing job and another regular freelance writing gig so I am one happy camper.
I have a reading at CU's Museum of Natural History on February 9th. The reading has to do with the gig I was offered to write about objects in nature. I had to find two additional poets and coordinate everything so I was paid for that. Then, much to my surprise, two of the poems were accepted for publication in the online zine Pedestal. Those will be out in a couple of weeks. They also wanted an MP3 file of me reading my poems so I will post that as soon as it is out.
My sons and I are headed to St. Louis next week to enjoy Christmas with ALL of my siblings and mom & dad. It will be a HUGE affair with all the little ones and spouses, etc. We will all try to keep clear of two volatile subjects in my family: religion and politics.
Now, I must get to work!
