And Now More Shameless Self Promotion

As near as I can tell (the royalty reports don't come in until March) my poetry is selling a few copies. I must admit it appeals to my vanity to know some people are actually buying and reading it. I believed it was pretty good, but it's stroking my vanity with validation to know others think so as well.

I'd be lying if I said I'm not immensely proud of it. If any of you have picked up a copy and liked it, tell others. If you got a copy and thought it was chicken shit, please stuff it up your bum and keep quiet about it. LOL.

I am thinking of assembling another at the end of the year, all haiku, quintain, and tanka, many with BDSM themes. I'm not sure if I will or not yet, but I am seriously toying with the idea. I have been writing a lot of it in the forums at another unaffiliated site and think it may be worthwhile. Just an idea, for now. Nothing set in stone yet.

The picture with this post is the cover of the one currently on the market.

Hey clam? Will AdultFriendFinder not allow you to post the ISBN on here? It would make finding your book a lot easier. Publication date was last June,
and my local B&N says it's currently out of print? How odd. I can order it on-line however. At 64 pages is it safe to assume that it is a Trade Paperback and not Mass Market? If I order one will you autograph it for me? I'll take care of getting it to you and return mail. I sort of have a thing for autographed books. What I have may not be worth much to anyone but me ... but well...would you sign it? Have you put anything in your blog that is also in the book?

Actually, they just barely allowed me to make this post at all. It is considered advertising. I had to remove instructions on where to find it, and the picture, while allowed here, was rejected for my profile. Yes, it was listed as a print-on-demand, so while it available in3 of the 4 main bookstores, it is only available online. And I will gladly autograph anyone's copy. I have made some connections and may be promoting it actively soon.

By the way, the first post to my blog contained a short piece from the book. And the other poems in this blog are similar to the majority of its content. Not pretty, pleasant poems, but for the mst part, I think, very good ones.By
