Book Updates

Both my books continue to move forward toward publication. I just mailed a package to Finishing Line Press containing the contract for Drinking Weather, along with a number of other items requested. Last night I received a galley proof of Signs of Small Grace from Pudding House. So it's a race to see which book will be my first.

In the meantime, please move your eyes to the right and note the links to the presses publishing my work. Take a bit of time to examine their offerings and consider purchasing something in addition to one (or both!) of my books. They are both small presses devoted to producing and promoting high quality poetry; it's an honor to be published by both and I hope you'll join me in supporting them. Without such dedicated presses and their hard-working editors, the situation of contemporary poetry would be considerably diminished.

More Good News

Freshly back from vacation in Chincoteague, I unexpectedly heard from Jennifer Bosveld, the editor at Pudding House. We sorted out the delays and it appears that Signs of Small Grace is back on track. I had a very kind note from Jen expressing her pleasure at being able to publish the book and I am delighted to have a second book in the works. It is immensely gratifying after so many years of effort to receive this recognition and I thank all of you loyal readers for the support and encouragement you've given me for so long.

I was recently asked to have the Salon linked to the directory at DCGuide. I was naturally flattered and agreed promptly. The permanent link to the Guide is at the right just under my profile. My posts are linked there under Greg. My thanks to Mike at DCGuide! Please pay it a visit.
