Hooray!
OK kids. The Brownstone Poets 2016 Anthology is officially out the door for publication at CreateSpace. A difficult journey. Too many revisions going back and forth with CreateSpace. Next year, I will have more time and knowledge to work in page numbers, use only b & w photos, etc . . . The books should arrive at my house by April 12. Off to Poets House as soon as I get the books.
Thank you Su Polo for saving my life with the layout dimension design. A big shout out to my team Bob Heman, DuEwa Frazier, Brenda J. Gannam, Cindy Sostchen-Hochman, Karen Neuberg, and Amy Barone. A big shoutout to Evie Ivy, our guest poet. Dear Cynthia Toronto and Michael Walsh, we miss you and honor you in the book.
