My book, A Wife Is A Hope Chest, was published by Brain Mill Press on Halloween 2017. With the gorgeous cover art by Melanie Faith and the excellent design, I could not be more pleased. I am feeling very grateful at the moment.
Most people I know want to read more. Writers especially. Including me. Last year I wanted to read more books of poetry, since I knew mine was coming out in autumn. I managed to amass quite a few, but didn’t read nearly as many as I wanted. [Insert legitimate reasons here, knowing they’re ultimately irrelevant.] This year I’m going to change that. And I’m going to share what I’ve read here.
However, I won’t be posting typical reviews; I’m a reader, not a critic. Instead I’ll just be sharing my responses, simple as that. Some of the books I’ve bought or got as gifts; some I received via contests (I didn’t win). Some are written by poets I know, some by strangers. If you’d like me to read your book, contact me at email@example.com, and I’ll do my best to get a copy.
Click here to read “Truth Is What She Tells” and a reprint of “A Wife Is A Hope Chest” (poems) at Open Thought Vortex. The generous Kara Post-Kennedy and Shareen Mansfield of OTV are so supportive and have built such a wonderful writing community there. Thank you both so much!
Thank you, Brain Mill Press, and congratulations to all the nominees!
