My new chapbook is almost ready! You can order it at Seven Kitchens Press. The wonderful editor of this small press, Ron Mohring, posted a sample poem along with the chapbook announcement: Preteen, 7 a.m. Just scroll down to read it.
This chapbook was written over a few months' time in 2007, beginning with NaPoWriMo in April of that year. The few that were written earlier were the ones that inspired me to continue with a collection that explored parenthood with its myriad difficulties and joys.
Thanks go to Ron and his assistant Matthew Koppenhaver for all the hard work they put into making this chapbook possible. Thanks also to the wonderful people who provided blurbs for the book: Jim Daniels and Karen J. Weyant, both fine writers I greatly admire.
I'm told that Seven Kitchens Press is working on a new website for this year, and I may have more blurbs about the chapbook that appear there this summer. Stay tuned!
PS: yup, that's a photo I took of my son holding a red box. The box was a gift from my brother, the notebook a gift from my husband.
