Welp, my little book is on pre-sale, and that means two things: 

1) It's going for a reduced price.

2) Every time a book is purchased from the Black Lawrence Press website instead of from another retailer, their profit jumps by a factor somewhere between 1.5 and 2.5. When the order is placed with BLP, not only do they receive a much better profit, but they also get the funds right away (when you pre-order a book with Amazon, BLP may wait up to 6 months to receive those funds). This makes a big difference to a little press AND it's really helpful for the author, since a portion, a very little portion, of that profit goes to me, and is otherwise an incredibly nominal amount. The more copies bought now through BLP, the better it is for me, the writer, and the small press community at large.

This pre-sale ends on April 30th, the day before the official pub date, so if you want to purchase the book, now is the best time to do it! Many thanks for supporting indie writers and small presses.

creek collective: gallery opening + artist talk

So pleased to be an ongoing part of the Craigardan community and to join the artists reception with curator Lily Fein on August 31. Come check us out if you're in the Adirondacks...

‘Creek Collective’ evolved through conversations at Craigardan about the common threads in many of these artists’ works which pour out of themselves in haptic, desirous, and a getting-closer-to-the-material kind of way. We are investigating what it means to touch – the land, our senses, where we meet. Interested in connection and connected through friendship, ‘Creek Collective’ shares well springs which hold the objects, photos and writings together in a cobweb that persists through time and location. Bound and loose, the makers relish in their individuality and the conversations that begin to form via the curves and crystals in their works.

I think of everything I am writing now as an essay. But I’m also interested in the space of fiction, the space of the speculative and ghostly.
