Have begun the chore of sifting my poetry to select those that will appear in Slices.
I am working with Kathryn Amos Glover, an artist and childhood friend, who will help in the process.
Kathryn will create a color jacket for the collection, as well as illustrations for the sections.
Her website is included among recommended sites on my blog.
Unless I get pounded by the poetry muse, I’ll be on sabbatical for an undetermined time while we get this project off the ground.
She and I are geographically removed from each other. She is in the northeast, and I am in North Carolina. Thank goodness for the digital/Internet age!
The current plan is to publish on Amazon.
Those who helped select poems will, of course, receive a complimentary copy. You know who you are, and so do I. At the appropriate time I’ll ask for your mailing address, but not before I have copies in hand to send you.
Any who have not self-published before, and would like a recount of this second experience, email me (you might have to hunt and search for that address).
My first self-publishing experience, Through the Glass Darkly, is available on Amazon under my pen name, L. Stewart Marsden. It is not poetry, but a collection of short stories of the dark sort.
Thanks to all who have visited my blog over the last two years, and who have commented as well as have followed my work.
My work is still in its infancy — even though I’m not.
Please allow me to encourage you to write. And, to publish. It is surprisingly inexpensive. You might not end up in an anthology published by one of the large presses, but — at least you and your progeny will have something tangible of your work.
