I'm a tacky poet-gal...

And I hope this is okay with the moderators, but I can't help being excited and letting everyone know...

That my chapbook is now out from Burnside Review Press, where it was selected as the winner of their first chapbook contest.

"Daphne & Jim" is not your everyday run-of-the-mill chapbook of poems. It's a choose-your-own-adventure book, based on the events of my parents' disastrous courtship!

So I wnated to take this opportunity to feed y'all a link:

... and to offer a free copy to anyone who'd like to read the lil thing for a possible review. B
