The promotional list gets longer every day.
I promise to catch up with you. For the last month, I’ve been working on postcards, books marks, signs, and companion essays—all the things we poets have to do for ourselves because no one is coming to give up thousands of dollars in advances. At least, they’re not coming for me, yet. My new book will be out in September but prepublications orders start next month, so many tasks have to be completed by then.
If you have advice, please give it.
If you have ideas, I’m all ears.
And if you need a guest blogger, I’m your girl!
