It’s here! It’s here!

My book, RISK A VERSE: A Year in Daily Sonnets is officially available for purchase on Amazon!

I checked with my publisher, Burrito Books, about the best place(s) to purchase the book, and they encouraged me to shoo people to Amazon, though people/business interested in bulk purchases should contact them. Their plan is to get an e-book version on Kindle and other platforms within the next months, but for now, it’s available in paperback only, So shoo! Shoo!

I am thrilled that after all these years preparing and editing the manuscript, my crazy year of sonnets is actually a book!

Funny, having the book out feels a lot like posting my final sonnet of that year: deeply satisfying to have successfully finished, but also exciting to┬ámove on to the next thing. And I certainly have a number of irons in the creative fires! But today? I’m taking it easy. Because putting a cap on a project of nearly four years is not something one does every day. Also, I have a cold and would strongly prefer not to be coughing up a lung during my final rehearsals for next weekend’s performances.

So yeah. Situation normal.

Love to All!

They also asked me some questions about the book and writing and editing, so if you’d like to see me yammer at length on such topics, here ya go!

I will update this page with a link for purchase as soon as I have it.

Apologies for the lack of coherence and meaningful commentary–I’m just so thrilled that after four years, the sonnets that I first published ON THIS VERY BLOG are going to be a real, actual book with pages (406!) and a (GORGEOUS) cover and more footnotes than you can shake a stick at!

Love and Joy to All!
