This week, I’m excited to finally have my official book release for my collection (out from Vegetarian Alcoholic Press). If you happen to be in Ames, Iowa, stop in to Design on Main on October 11th (7:00-8:30 PM) for readings, cupcakes, a book signing, and surprises. In addition to me reading some poems, there will be fabulous readings by amazing writer friends: Crystal Stone, Erin Schmiel, and Claire Kruesel.

Well July has been an exciting month! My debut full length poetry collection, Your Strange Fortune, was released from Vegetarian Alcoholic Press! It is available for order from the press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your favorite independent bookstore. A lovely review of the book was out at Cleaver magazine written by the amazing KC Mead-Brewer! Another lovely review was at the awesome Juliette Sebock’s book blog!
Little Fiction allowed me to write a playlist in celebration of my book
and EcoTheo allowed me to write a short essay on the creation of the book
And I was also fortunate to have a new poem out at a fabulous place:
Litany in Last Exit
