My first book of poetry, The Maintenance of the Shimmy-Shammy by Christopher Citro, has just been published by Steel Toe Books, an independent press affiliated with Western Kentucky University. The price is $12 plus shipping and handling.

I am overjoyed, over-the-moon, overwhelmed and quite frickin’ excited to announce that my first poetry book manuscript, The Maintenance of the Shimmy-Shammy, has been selected for publication by Steel Toe Books, an independent poetry press founded in 2003, directed by Tom C. Hunley and associated with Western Kentucky University.
I love this press and I’m so excited that they’ll be publishing my book, which is scheduled to appear in the first quarter of 2015.
It is indeed a Happy New Year!
