i’ve added my first book of poems, Treading Earth, to smashwords here as a pay-what-you-like download. it was first published by PressPress, “probably the smallest publisher in the known universe,” but has now gone out of print – you can still buy one from me if you ask nicely though.
interesting times for ebooks. seems like every other day there is a new article about them. i’m trying to stay focused on writing good content for whatever format publishers choose to make. but if i can zinify my back catalogue, all the better.
a wave goodbye to the print journal heat and good luck with whatever shape the digital version will come in! i was in #16 of that fine journal and appreciated its risk taking, curatorial wit and particular affection for interesting memoir.
and a wave hello to the fabulous newmatilda, which successfully crowdsourced its funding for 2011. a huge thankyou to anyone who put some money in the hat to keep the site going, as you are also keeping me employed.
a few projects coming up in alice over the next few weeks, but firstly here’s a plug for my book launch in march. put it in your diary now!
