I published a book! The hardback is available for purchase through the printer, and the paperback is distributed through Ingram Global Distribution, which unfortunately has a mysterious turn around time of no one knows because it is unpredictable.
I decided that something positive had to come of today besides that gorgeous Seattle weather. Therefore, it’s official. I’m selling a poetry book. And it now has an official launch date.
You might see a few different images floating around for the upcoming poetry collection L’Identité Politique (first pictured above, the rest to follow):
I disagreed with someone on which phrasing made more sense and so we agreed that both should exist. So they do.
And of course I also made a larger notice – this one is more Instagram sized, though I haven’t used it there yet.
I can’t believe it’s real.
Jacob and Bee have mentioned interest in a Zoom launch party. If anyone would be interested in joining, I would absolutely love to host giveaways and other extra-special celebration games, if anyone can think of any. I have additional proof copies (meaning they contain errors and are not the actual final cover version) that are available for anyone interested in supporting me 🙂
I can’t begin to express how much work this has been, but it’s absolutely rewarding. This is one of at least four works I will see in a physical printed form from at least in some part of my creation during 2021. I couldn’t have done it without so many people. I don’t know where to begin, so I guess I’ll stop here for now.
Have a wonderful night, and as of four minutes from now, Happy Valentines Day.
Freedom is found In knowledge sought Connections imagined – New dawning era of thought Yet none speaks wisely Who claim to know all Pushing forth their opinions As to not seem so small Compensation calculation For indiscretions of past Look instead to the future Nothing Can Last

There’s a light in the forest Beyond the break in the trees Where water flows gently Among the rustle of leaves. Pardon the intrusion Where humans should not be I’ll return to the shadows– Darkened path no one sees

I hold space in the darkness Where someday I pray There will be light

“Dans Macabre–” you say With a permanent pearly grin “It takes your breath away.” As your long limbs sway Stripped of their flesh Now immortal as stone With your clattering bones: Restless soul with no home.
Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry today! These originally appeared on my Twitteraccount.
