I’m honored today to see the Poems-for-All project publish four of its signature “miniature books” featuring my work – two with my flash fiction and two with my poetry. Poems-for-All is a unique and truly inventive California-based publisher that produces these mini-books and then distributes them for free in variety of public places. That way, they’re “scattered like seeds” and can reach and surprise new readers – and maybe even create new lovers of poetry. (They’re even shared in Scotland at the St. Andrews International Poetry Festival.) All four of the mini-books containing my writing feature beautiful artwork by publisher Robert Hansen. (I just love the covers!)
The first flash fiction mini-book features my 100-word horror story, “There in the Bags” (just in time for Halloween). The second features my responses to the popular online Six-Word Sci-Fi Story Challenge.
The first mini-book containing my poetry contains the first stanza of my most popular poem, “Confession.” (It works well as a standalone short poem.) The second contains my recent poem, “Consciousness Haiku.”
I remain tremendously grateful to Mr. Hansen for selecting my work for this fun and innovative project, and for producing such terrific artwork to accompany my writing.
