The Book Jacket!


Hello everyone! I am very excited to present the book jacket for Blood Eagle! Keep in mind that this is subject to change, but everything is looking great! Many thanks to Nick Courtright from Gold Wake Press, who is awesome in case you didn’t know. Blood Eagle is due out just in time for AWP (near the end of March).

If all goes as planned, I will be at AWP in 2015. Bring on the book fair and awesome offsite readings!

Be sure to contact me on Facebook or Twitter. If I have money, then I may or may not buy you a beer.

On Being a Semi-finalist

Between Black Lawrence Press, Gold Line Press,  iO Poetry, and Alice James Books, I have been a semi-finalist in book and chapbook competitions a total of 5 times. While I am extremely grateful for being a semi-finalist, it is admittedly bittersweet to come so close and not win. But as my friend and mentor Richard Greenfield told me when I asked what to do next, I must keep sending the manuscripts out! I believe it’s only a matter of time and revision…

…BLP has to be tired of me by now!

Hording works…

I find myself hording unpublished books and chapbooks. I don’t wait for my collections to be published before I write new material, and now I am finding that my “books” are accruing in my Dropbox account. They nag at me, asking to be free from the confines of my computer/mind.
