For Better, For Verse

Happy New Year, One and All!

I have so much exciting stuff to report, but I should probably lead with this: a book containing all the sonnets I posted here during my year-long sonnet-writing project will be released in April! The pieces have been gently edited and lovingly annotated, so there’s quite a bit of content that will be new, even to those who followed the project in real time. Here’s a draft of the front cover of Risk a Verse: A Year in Daily Sonnets, published by Burrito Books!

ISN’T IT GORGEOUS? I am so excited!

The book will be released on April 23rd, 2018 and purchase info will be posted here as soon as it’s available. You won’t be able to avoid it, really. 😀

In other exciting news, I’m going to be participating in Willan West 2018, a year-long celebration of the music of Anglo-Canadian composer, Healey Willan. In addition to singing on a number of the performances, I will also be running a Limerick contest for the kick-off party on January 12th, since Willan was a huge fan of the verse form.

So that’s enough to be starting with, I think. Look for more frequent updates this year, with lots of niftiness upcoming!

Smooches to All!

    • *happydances with you* Thank you! I’m really excited on both counts! I’ll probably recuse myself from entering the limerick contest, since I’m organizing it, but don’t worry, attendees will not be entirely missing out on punny limericks from yours truly 😀 This is going to be so much fun!
