Man, the past six months of celebrating the publication of my first book have been wild. It’s impossible to predict how such an event will affect a writer’s life, for better or for worse. I’m choosing to focus here on the positives and thank the poetry fans who turned out to hear my featured readings and to buy every author’s copy of my book and then some.
Now that I’ve finished my last local reading this year, it’s time to focus on finding a publisher for book number two, making a dent in the novella that will someday finish the autobiographical trilogy I’ve been working on since 1996! and nailing down a steady day job for the Fall. (When I’m not trying to figure out why the blogroll is on here twice,) you can find me over the summer editing the online journals MoJo! and U.M.Ph.! Prose; otherwise, happy summer! See you in September.
