Happy Halloween kids!
Easily my favorite holiday of the year. You can keep your overcooked dried turkeys and your relentless jingle bells. All true mischief makers know that Halloween is the best holiday of the year!
I heard from a pretty reliable source there was promise of Dum-Dums in my future.
ROOTBEER DUM DUMS!!!
Before we close out this month, I have a couple quick thank yous to share:
Revising/editing/publishing This Is Sarah and revising Palimpsest has really taken up a huge chunk of my writing time in these last 10 months. Poetry has certainly (until recently) taken the backseat so I’m always especially grateful when awesome mags pick up something. So many thanks to Underground Books for taking these poems from the How To Be An American Series and to Commonline Journal for accepting Marriage.
The Blue Hour – one of my favorite magazines – has a new anthology out. This is their third one and if it’s anything like the other two (and I know it will be) it will certainly be a fascinating collection. The best thing about Anthologies is that you get to discover new poets in them! Check it out if you have a chance. Blue Hour doesn’t sell on Amazon so be a gem and get it directly from the site. Then you’re supporting small presses, poetry, and non-behemoths. A win for us all!
So if you want to win some books, there are approximately 9 bajillion available. Enter here!
Blog reviews are gold to a small press publisher. And FINALLY I had a blast bs-ing with Tasha Cotter, my press buddy. Her new book, Red Carpet Day Job is forthcoming from BookFish Books.
And that’s about it for my month.
Anyway kids, have a blast tonight.
Start Some Trouble.
Fall in Love.
Do the Time Warp Again.
