As the flowers begin their tentative, premature piercings of the frozen topsoil here in sunny Syracuse, tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of the publication of my first book of poetry, The Maintenance of the Shimmy-Shammy. Thanks again to the wonderful poets who generously provided blurbs for my book: Erika Meitner, Catherine Bowman, Maurice Manning, and Amy Gerstler! Thank you to everyone who has read it, including those kind souls who have rated and reviewed it on Amazon, B&N, and Goodreads. It’s been a great year! If you’d like a copy, you can buy one from Amazon, Barnes and Noble Online, or direct from the publisher Steel Toe Books. If you’d like to request a review copy, just contact me directly. And thanks again for reading!
