Report from with audio!

Jennifer just got back from FSU & the reading was a smashing success. The campus bookstore had 20 copies of each book...& sold them all!

Here's a podcast from the reading.

Rocking good news. We love FSU.

If you were there & have photos to share, give a shout, will ya?

Galatea Resurrects... of the most open, most innovative, and most enthusiastic poetry-review publications online or in print, has posted an updated list of books and chapbooks seeking reviewers. (One of the coolest things about this magazine is that it encourages multiple perspectives on the same book, meaning, once a book has been reviewed it is still available for another look!)

Details here. (Ours are there too, if you're so inclined.)

And do dive into the latest issue, which speaks to books by some of our tiny press friends like No Tell Books, Effing Press, Octopus Books, BlazeVOX, Otoliths Press, Bootstrap Press, and many others.

Review copies available

The publicity mailings have mostly gone out & the response has been good so far.

But, if you're a reviewer or editor and would like to review/assign Drunk by Noon or For Girls (& Others), there are a limited number of review copies remaining.

Please get in touch. (Email at upper right.)

Is that a cat playing piano? Why, yes it is.

Bloof invades the Midwest Territories

Advance warning so there's plenty of time for you to sweep the cobwebs outta the fallout shelter in your backyard, lay in some canned goods, toiletries, purified water, matches, etc. & get whatever shots you're gonna need:

Bloof Books will be making a tour of the Midwest...& possibly West...come April.

Here's what the schedule looks like so far:
April 2: Shanna Compton at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI.
April 3: Jennifer L. Knox, Danielle Pafunda & Shanna Compton at the Fixx Series in Chicago, IL.
April 4: TBD
April 5: TBD
April 6: Jennifer L. Knox, Danielle Pafunda & Shanna Compton at the Actual Kansas Series in Lawrence, KS.

We're also planning to hit Fargo, ND (date to come), and possibly Iowa City (where, as we know from "The Best Thanksgiving Ever,"* Jennifer's spent "a lot of time.")

So where else should we go? We've got this roadtrip thing down. Four or five hours in a car is nothing for poets with our stamina. Heck, we've done much as 10.5 at once, back in 'aught-five. (Those were the days.) We've got a cooler.

If you're in the Midwest or West Coast--or really any place at all--we'd like to come see you. If you invite us, we'll do our best to get there. Shoot us an email (address in the sidebar).
