Today’s a special day for me. It’s the publication day for my new book, Other Possible Lives.
A few things to share:
Thank you to everyone who’s already pre-ordered! If you’re interested in ordering the book, you can do so direct from the publisher here. Ordering direct from indie presses like Broadstone helps support the vital work these small presses are doing in making a home for poetry.
If you’re in Orlando, come celebrate with me at the launch party: Monday, October 21, 7 p.m. at Park Avenue CDs. There will be books! There will be sweet jams! And best of all, thanks to the good folks at Park Avenue CDs and Orange Blossom Brewing, there will be free beer!
If you read the book and don’t think it’s terrible, I’d be super grateful to have you rate and review the book on Amazon, and/or Goodreads.
I know it’s unusual for book clubs to read books of poems, but one of my biggest goals as a writer is to make work that invites readers in–especially folks that think they don’t like poetry. (Top Secret Confession: I used to think that, too!) I’d love to talk with your book club in person or by video chat. If you’re interested, you can reach me here.
Do you or someone you know run a reading series or host literary events? I love to read, talk to budding writers, and connect with readers. You can reach me here.
Are you a book reviewer interested in reviewing the book? I’ve got a box full of ARCs, and I’d love to send one your way! You can reach me here.
Do you love the cover as much as I do? Check out more art by painter and generally awesome person Michael Eble here.
And finally, thank you times one million to friends and colleagues who’ve helped this book find its way to readers via blurbs, excerpts in publications, readings, etc.
