I was going to title this post “Yahoo!” but that might have been misinterpreted. So much of our language has been commercially appropriated. Eat more kale, says I. Anyhow… I am pleased and proud and tickled and relieved to announce that the second volume of my poetic trilogy, which revisits Dante’s Il Purgatorio in much the same way that To Join the Lost revisited L’Inferno, has been accepted for publication by Fomite Press, a publishing house after my own heart. Visit their site and you’ll see what I mean. The “relieved” is because I took some risks with this one, and they seem to have paid off. Both of the editors who have read it so far have liked it enough to want to print it. Projected publication date is some time in the first half of 2015. So… if you haven’t bought a copy of To Join the Lost yet, now would be a good time to do so, so that you can be all read up and prepared when Goldfish Rising (or whatever we decide to call it) hits the streets! You can get your very own copy of TJTL here; if you ask, I’ll autograph it for you.
