The second set of galleys has come and gone this week, and now I await word that The Boatman's Daughter is going to print! I'll let you know as soon as that happens, and when the book tour begins.
In the meantime, you can pencil in some dates, if you're in the Tyrone vicinity:
October 19: Open Mic Matinee, Poetry & Spoken Word Performance, 1:00 pm, Fayette County Public Library, 1821 Heritage Park Way, Fayetteville, GA 30214 · 770-461-8841. Reception and Book Signing to follow, including light refreshments.
Nov. 14, 6:30-8:30 pm: Dogwood Gallery, Book Launch Party. Stop for some poetry, art, wine and nibbles.
Dec. 6, afternoon: "Poetry Tea" at OM, 285 Lynnwood Ave., Tyrone, GA
These will warm up my poetic and performance muscles! I only hope my book arrives in time for that first outing. In any case, I will read and have postcards on hand, as well as a few copies of Poems from the Boatyard. Come to one or all, as you are able and interested!
Into the Fall we go...a great season to curl up with a cup of apple cider, maybe a fire in the fireplace, and a dash of poetry. Have a great one, and thanks for your patience with small press publishing!
