I am so excited for this release. It includes my story, “The Ground Shook”. This is one of my favorites. Meera arrived on the page and insisted her story be written. She’s determined to bring back her daddy, no matter what it takes or what might be happening in the world around her. Meera’s story is a dark, creepy, and emotional one, but not without love and hope.
There’s been much buzz about this one and rightly so. I may be a bit biased as I am honored to have three poems, “Intimate Communion”, “Molting”, and “Zombification”, in this amazing collection, but the TOC, the sneak peeks, and the spotlights have been spectacular.
April was National Poetry Month and to celebrate I set out to write a poem a day. I finished my 30th poem of the month today, April 30th. These are all first drafts. They will need a bit more refining before I submit them to markets. Nevertheless, I have 30 new poems.
The above are my reads for this month. There are many more amazing poets and craft books I’d recommend, as well. Perhaps I’ll do some future blog posts on them, or feel free to email for personalized recommendations.
