Double Poetry Book Release

Back in the day, before I had dreams of becoming a publisher, I began exploring the World Wide Web. I started in the usual places, ie Live Journal, and slowly dipped my toes into various forums, online rooms, and other semi-anonymous areas where you meet strangers.

I found Nathan Alan Schwartz that way. The details of how we went from strangers to friends are pretty sketchy at this point. However, Nathan's a poet, and I'm a poet, so things just work. We complain to each other that we're sucky poets, then we edit each others poems. And when we go through writer's blocks, we discuss our varied musical tastes and somehow Tom Waits has to win; but I digress.

I admire his writing and it's an honor to release my print poetry book at the same time as his. When, you say? Well soon. It's quite the process ;)
