Friday marked the end of the pre-sales period and I received the final sales update from the publisher just this morning. Everyone who purchased a copy by the pre-order period end date had their name plugged into an Excel worksheet and a number attributed to their name. Using Excel’s super fun RANDOMBETWEEN function, one name was selected as the recipient of the book’s cover art printed to a 20″ x 30″ canvas.
I am very pleased to announce that the winner is none other than Betty Hayes Albright! Betty is a wonderful poet who blogs over at Seasonings. If you’re not familiar with her work, I highly recommend popping over to her blog. Congratulations, Betty! Your art print will be on its way to you sometime this week.
A very sincere thank you to everyone who has supported me over the past 10 years of writing this poetry blog.
With much love and gratitude,
This has been a long time coming for me, so I am extra pleased to be able to announce my forthcoming new chapbook via Finishing Line Press, Wandering Wonderful. Copies are available for pre-order through the Finishing Line Press website and will begin to ship out in mid-May. Click on the link here to take a peek: Wandering Wonderful
It has been six years since the publication of my first chapbook, so for those of you who have been asking about another, thank you for bearing with me and for continuing to support me with your kind praise and words of encouragement. I am blessed to have been surrounded by such a talented community of poets, writers, artists, and fellow wanderers. Much love to you!
Also, for anyone interested, I have meandered over into Instagram territory. Look for @hikeswithbooks if you are so inclined (you may just see a few different photos of my hiking adventures than you would on the blog).
With a full and grateful heart,
