Good morning everyone!
Since it’s been posted on Facebook I feel it’s ok to announce this here.
As you know, Newington Blue did Volume 1 & 2 of Buk 100 (second volume to be complete before Christmas, if all goes well) but, they’ve announced that they will be publishing two single author chapbooks next year (one prose and one poetry). The wonderful Michael D. Meloan has been chosen for the first chapbook (prose) – of which I’m thrilled to get my hands on – and yours truly has been picked for the second!
I’m blown away by the love and support Newington Blue is showing me. The chapbook will be 40+ poems, accompanied by illustrations. 40+ poems is a lot for any writer – but especially for me who is basically unknown and unpublished. I’m just… overwhelmed with gratitude.
So what does this mean for you?
I have daily poems scheduled until the middle of January. After that, I will be scaling my poems back significantly – probably one per week. I want to take the next two months to focus on writing fresh material for the book (which will be exclusive to it). It’s likely that I will not return to posting daily, and stick to a poem a week.
I am playing with diversifying my content as well – I do have some short stories (kinda) that I am thinking about sharing. So we’ll see.
Thank you all so much for your likes, follows, and beautiful comments. I am so greatful for them all!
I’ll keep you guys informed of what’s going on along the way with the book. 🙂
Your filthy minded poet 🙂
