The Devastation by Jill Alexander Essbaum is Now Available

Cooper Dillon Books is happy to bring you Jill Alexander Essbaum's long-poem chapbook, The Devastation.

Head on over to the Cooper Dillon Bookstore and start 2010 off right!

PS - Expect this blog to have a name other than my own soon. Ms. Rachel Dacus was kind enough to plug it and link it up, and it seems goofy that I never named this space. More to come as it comes.

Peace, babies!

Welcome to the New Year

Kick it off by reading Jason Schneiderman over at the Best American Poetry Blog.

My brother asked me the other day what my resolutions were. He got annoyed when I told him I don't make them because I don't think we need to wait for a day-to-come to make our lives better. Why should our resolve be waivering until the new year?

Just saying.

As for this blog, the resolve is the same as it ever was: expect announcements regarding other artists around the entire community whom I'm excited to support. The links to the right bring you to people who are making magical stuff, and I hope you enjoy it.
