Hey, gang — I received some nice news today. Poet Jenny Santellano has kindly agreed to feature a poem of mine in her ongoing video series.
Jenny is a particularly gracious creative person who allows other poets to benefit from her voice; she reads selected poems at her Youtube channel, which you can find right here. (Seriously, guys, she has a beautiful voice.)
The poem selected is “The Writer.” It was part of a trilogy of poems entitled “Three Dreamers,” which was first published in 2013 by Dagda Publishing in its online format, and then in its print anthology, “Threads.” (“Three Dreamers” was also subsequently published by Illumen Magazine, Dead Snakes and UFO Gigolo.)
I’ll be sure to post a link when the video appears.
I am honored to share here that my colleagues over at The Bees Are Dead have agreed to publish my science fiction – horror story, “At the End of the World, My Daughter Wept Metal.”
The story, which originally appeared in Dagda Publishing’s “All Hail the New Flesh” story anthology, should be featured at the online magazine’s website by the end of this month. I will post a link here when it appears.
I am quite grateful to Philippe Atherton-Blenkiron and Dennis Villelmi for this opportunity — not to mention B.A.D.’s invaluable editorial input, which helped me to tighten up my writing considerably. Cheers, Mates!
I’m honored once again to share that another poem of mine will be published by Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine. The upcoming September 2016 issue will include “Our Room In Brooklyn.” This is a piece that I authored many years ago; it was first featured by Dagda Publishing in 2013.
Thanks to Editor Samantha Rose for allowing me to be a part of of the terrific creative community over at Peeking Cat!
“A Muted Iris” was first published by Dagda Publishing in October 2014; the haiku was most recently published last year by Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine. (It follows “Amanda,” which was featured by both Dead Snakes and Peeking Cat.)
Thanks once again to Editor Stephen Jarrell Williams at Dead Snakes!
I’m honored to share here that Dead Snakes published “Three Dreamers” today. This is a set of three related poems that was first featured by Dagda Publishing, in the United Kingdom, in January 2013 — the poems’ individual titles are “The Writer,” “The Secretary,” and “The Bureaucrat.” Dagda subsequently featured these poems in print format in its 2013 poetry anthology, “Threads.” Finally, these poems were published in 2014 by Illumen, a quarterly print-only poetry journal here in the United States.
Editor Stephen Jarrell Williams also kindly informed me the he would feature the poems on another site for which he serves as editor — UFO Gigolo. This online publication focuses on poetry in the genres of fantasy, horror, and science fiction. I’m new to the site, but it looks like great fun, perhaps especially for the sci-fi and horror fans with whom I’ve become acquainted here at my blog.
You can find “Three Dreamers” at Dead Snakes right here:
It sounds like a hell of a fun fantasy novel. (Seriously, read the synopsis.) And grassroots marketing campaigns like this one are so important to independent authors.
I love Matt Davis’ cover design as well. It actually reminds me a lot of the work of one of my own favorite artists, Matt Wagner. (I actually thought it was a Wagner piece when I first saw the image via my Facebook’s newsfeed.)
