Exciting Year!

Jan 15, 10:53 AM


Happy New Year, everyone!

I'm anticipating that 2014 is going to be an exciting year!  It marks the 20th anniversary of my press, Via Dolorosa Press, which has me as happy as a parent whose child just graduated.  I've also got a few special events lined up that I hope you will join me for!  The major one this year is Convergence 20, which is being held in Chicago in April.  Check out my Events page to see details.  I hope to have the next Jon Hunter book done this year as well.  (I'm pushing to get it done in time for Convergence, so we'll see what happens!)

Thanks again for all of your support, particularly for your response to my latest poetry collection, Seventy Times Seven.  I am so honored to have such amazing fans!!

Much love and wellness to each of you this year!

Crawling the Walls...

Feb 18, 04:14 PM

Going stir-crazy here on a beautiful spring-like day in Cleveland.  I hope those of you in the area were able to get out and enjoy this weather, because you know what they say: in 10 minutes it will change, and the pressure headache I'm getting now is proof that's true.

Well, miracle of miracles, that other poetry collection I mentioned in my previous post has been completed!  It's nowhere near ready to print yet, but it's written, and I love it more than anything I've ever done!  The title is Seventy Times Seven and I've created a new page for it here on the site.  It is 77 poems long and is set up like a narrative, so it's a lengthy piece.  Antoinette Hancock, the lovely artist who did the covers of The Esoteric and Crush Violets, will be creating the artwork for this book.  I'm super excited to share this with all of you. 

I'm also super excited that this project is pretty much done!  It's been over 10 years in the making, and it was quite a lot to carry around inside me all that time.  It chronicles a period that many of you will recognize as the "Hyacinthe dropped off the face of the earth" era, and it is a relief for me to get this out of my system.  I wrote it in a style a bit more like Anne Sexton than usual, and I think it works well.  It's a journey from hope to horror and back again.

Now that I've birthed that child, I can go back to nurturing the other inside me: book two of the Jon Hunter Mysteries!  I've extended the trip I'm taking in March (see the 'Events' page for more details) so that I can spend time writing.  I love the energy of NYC, and I'd like to capture that as I write this new installment.  This year is going to be very exciting!
