As you may have heard, my first collection of poetry was selected for publication through the New Women’s Voices Chapbook Competition from Finishing Line Press. The collection, titled UNDOING WINTER, will be released as a limited edition chapbook (short book) on June 21, 2014.
UNDOING WINTER contains some previously published poems along with others debuted especially for this collection. With subjects ranging from romantic love to motherhood, fantasy to history, death to resurrection, UNDOING WINTER represents nearly twenty years of writing, and is an exciting milestone in my creative journey.
UNDOING WINTER includes original, color cover art, “Moon Shadows”, by my long-time friend and mentor, Lisa Lutwyche. Poet, playwright, watercolorist, and actor, Lisa has published in the US and the UK, and has taught Creative Writing and Watercolor at community arts centers for over twenty years.
The press run for UNDOING WINTER will depend on the number of sales made during a special, pre-publication period that is going on NOW through APRIL 25th. If you would like a copy, please don’t wait – you can reserve a copy online at Finishing Line Press.
The cost of the book is $14.00, with a special discounted shipping cost of $2.99 for orders placed by April 25th.
Please do pass this along to anyone you think might be interested. I encourage you to place all orders by April 25th, as this will help determine the ultimate press run.
All orders will be shipped after June 21, 2014.
I want to give heartfelt thanks to my family and colleagues for your enthusiastic support, both personal and professional. This has been an amazing year.
