I finished revising the upcoming “A City of Trees: poems of tribute 1” this week.  It’s the prequel to the Bukowski-inspired “What Good’s a View of the Charles…?” (2013). Both from ALL CAPS PUBLISHING.

And the proof arrived for “Playground: poems” by Margie Shaheed, winner of the 2014 Hidden Charm Press Poetry Chapbook Contest.  So the book will be out this month.

So guess how productive I feel right now!  Here’s my Amazon page, with three books I’ve written and the Extra MoJo! anthology I edited.  I will post links when the new books are officially launched.  Now, off to rest my brain!

3)  I’ve finished my novella (Ramshackled), which is more of a novelette, and will be publishing it along with 26 microfiction tales about 26 women (working title: Rosebud).

4)  I forgot.  I did a lot of bookmaking last year.  Exhausting!  But it’s nice to see it all booked up this year.

What’s up with me?  Writing Moby-Dick poems.  Keeping these old bones warm.  Looking wistfully out the window for some real snow.  Creating sentence fragments.  Trying to fix my memoir image, as it keeps showing up backwards.  Eep.

March 15, 2014

Only halfway through the month, here I am posting.  Awake at midnight with pain shooting down my spine and the backs of my legs.  Sniffing a menthol stick because my allergies are acting up – allergic to a sunny day? – or maybe it’s a cold because my heart is racing a bit.  Cannot get comfortable worth a damn!

Yet, I feel crazy-happy!  The cover of my memoir is done.  I still can’t do page numbers, so don’t ask when it will be published, but it’s done.  And the feature for my Buk tribute poems was fantastic Monday.  Yup, I’m wiped out for a week after one social engagement/creative work event, but I’m pretty tired after a day of laundry too yet laundry doesn’t leave me smiling like in the photo below!
