Po-Hustle: My First Book Goes Into Second Printing

*

not sure if i am supposed to share this information, but oh well i’m excited (and i can always delete it later). found out yesterday that my first book is going into a second printing! i still can’t believe that all 1000 copies are out of boxes and out in the world and will probably end up soon at a used bookstore near you 😉

the book will be one year old in september and to be honest it’s been a long year…lots of readings, several class visits, many trips to the post office, way too many emails.

this news, though, comes at a good time because i was starting to feel guilty that i wasnt doing enough to promote the book this summer–i had plans to finally send out review copies & blog copies, to finally try to score some interviews, to finally send the book to poets that i admire. and none of that has happened as this summer has been crazy with other things.

but with tinfish press investing in another print run, i feel motivated again to get my po-hustle on.

so thanks to all of you who bought a copy of the book! and thanks to all of you who have reviewed the book! and thanks to all of you who have promoted the book on their blogs! and thanks to all of you who taught the book! and thanks to all of you who invited me to read!

drinks at AWP are on ALC!

if you don’t have my book yet, there are still 33 copies at SPD, so get your SPD on!
