All of the blurbs for Render are in and the folks who provided them are some of my favorite poets: Maureen Seaton, Charles Jensen, Stacey Lynn Brown, Daniel Nathan Terry and Vanessa Daou. If you had told me 10 years ago that Vanessa – one of my poetry and musical muses – would be writing a blurb for me, I would have laughed in your face. I am deeply honored that all these fine artists are supporting me and this new book. Bryan Borland and the Sibling Rivalry Press family are second to none. We'll have a printed proof copy in a few weeks and then it's out for early reviews. Fingers crossed for good ones!
I'm starting to set up gigs both here and in the UK. If you're looking for a visiting poet for your reading series or your classroom, get in touch. I'll be doing a bunch of gigs in late summer and in the fall this year.
