We have a sighting!

The good news came in double doses yesterday, to close out my Friday work day: The Boatman's Daughter has shipped, and Poems from the Boatyard will be going to Kindle format!  Yippee!

So today began with preparing the next set of docs and images for another format...reminding me of visa application days...subject of my third collection being worked on!  Stay tuned for that one.   The Kindle format will be available internationally, so my global peeps can finally get a copy. 

You should have your pre-ordered copy this week, and if you didn't get a chance to pre-order, here's the link again.

A new website is almost complete, but you can take a peek now:, as is the new iphone app.  Many thanks to Stephen Andrews for the hours of technical wizadry he has invested in the Boatyard.  If you need website design, you want to work with Stephen!

And don't forget the Fall line up of literary events!  Hope you can make one, and hope you enjoy the poems.  Thanks for your patience in this last delay, and see you around the county or Boatyard!

Fall Schedule:

Nov. 7-10: 2013 Other Words Conference, Florida Literary Arts Coalition, Flagler College, St. Augustine, FL.  At the request of Finishing Line Press, which will have a table at the fair, I will attend as an FLP poet, and can promote my book.  This also affords time to take advantage of a number of opportunities: getting to know more of the publisher's associates, attend workshops, and network.  I've never done anything like this before, so ready to plunge into the next level of author development.
