Poet of the Week and Chapbook Release!

Major poetry news here! This week, I was named Poet of the Week by Rick Lupert's PoetrySuperhighway.com . You can go to there to read three of my poems that were selected: "Eleven: Evenings and Endings;" "Four: Dinner-Time Discussions;" and "Three: Afternoon Assessment." I was especially happy to be selected as Poet of the Week because I know for a fact that I tried three times to get on that site in college and alas, could not. I guess I learned something in the last 8 years :)

Second big announcement! I am releasing my first ever chapbook of poetry. I am self-publishing this book because I want to get it out to those who want it - fast, cheap and easy :) Or shall I say, inexpensively:

I'll be adding a link on the site for pre-ordering the book, and will let you know as soon as it is available for purchase!

I am very excited to share this book with all of you, and hope you will find it interesting! Thank you for all of your inspiration, support and also a lot of fun. More to come, as the waiting continues!


  1. Congratulations!


  2. CONGRATULATIONS! I am so excited for you, and so so so in agreement that you are definitely the "poet of the week" (year, decade, etc!).

    You know I'll be first in line to purchase your chapbook. I plan to keep it around for later when you're a famous poet/author/playwright/director with new lungs and I can say, "yeah, well I readd her Unblog!"

    Kudos for a well-deserved round of amazing news!

  3. HOORAY!!!! Let your gift PAY YOU, I say!! This is great news, and I'm sure the response will be fantastic - I hope you can keep up with the demand! :)
    Wonderfully proud of you and your gumption. Need some gumption myself. ;)
    Much love,

  4. More exciting news from our lady in waiting. Congrats, Baby Doll! So proud of you.

  5. Yay! I can't wait to get my very own copy. And you - without a doubt - deserve the "Poet of the Week" award (or as Piper said, month, year, decade...)

    I already submitted my reservation. =)
