Last Friday's book launch

Well, hey there. I've been remiss in not posting this sooner. I will not enumerate the many things that have been taking my time of late, just assert that there's stuff going on around here, but it's really not a valid reason for not posting this a bit sooner.

Anyhoo . . .

The launch of my chapbook, The Universe Comes Knocking, published by Maverick Duck Press, went well, despite me having come down with a migraine shortly before the event. I am pleased that I didn't vomit on the audience, but managed to read poems aloud without incident. It was pretty well-attended, and all the seats in the place were filled, plus I was thrilled to see friends Angela De Groot, Jenn Hubbard, Bruce Niedt, and Rita Mitchell in the audience, and pleased, too, to be asked to sign eight copies of my chapbook, plus two copies of At the Boardwalk, which Bruce brought along with him. (Wow - run-on sentence much?)


Jenn Hubbard, me, and Angela De Groot


Many thanks to all of you who attended or sent good wishes, and to those of you who have told me that you are buying a copy from Maverick Duck Press. It is all much-appreciated, believe me!

I had missed your blog post, which was lovely, as was your note. Smooch!

Re: Yay!
Thanks, Jeannine. And yeah - I look healthy in the photo, but I was so ill.

Lovely photo -- glad it went well despite your not feeling up to par. You're a trooper! Nice to finally see what Angela looks like (I've been reading about her on your blog for years). :)

My copy of TUCK is on order!
