Happy Beautiful May to you!
I want to thank those of you that requested signed copies of one of my books, to give as Mother's Day gifts. Books of poetry are one of the most sentimental and loving gifts a person can give. I hope she enjoys it.
I also appreciated the emails asking for a special poem to be written for your occasion. It was fun for me!
The growing interest in poetry warms my heart. According to the Academy of American Poets,
“Poetry matters more than ever before, because we are more challenged than ever before. Poetry is the essential language that, endlessly branching, enables us to live deeply and envision what matters most.”
—Arthur Sze, Academy of American Poets Chancellor (2012– )
I have recently been asked to contribute to The Poet's Book of Advice by Z Publishing.
"It will be composed of approximately 500 short bits of advice on all things poetry (how to write it, how to appreciate it, how to deal with rejection, etc.). The hope is to publish the book in late June, 2017." - Z Publishing. Fun! I can't wait to read it myself.
My update for my next collection of poetry, "Simplistic Beauty" - Well we are soooooo close. There are always a million and one little details to be finished before the launch of a new book. I am anticipating a release in the next couple of months. Thank you for your patience, and all your continued questions about it's release, I so appreciate all of you.
