I’m Poet of the Month on Moontide Press’s website, by virtue of the fact that my book, Embers on the Stairs, is due to launch from them on March 13. All this publicity may go to my head. To see the posting and read a couple of sample poems, go here: http://www.moontidepress.com/category/poet-of-the-month/

My next book will be Embers on the Stairs, published by Moontide Press, www.moontidepress.com/. Michael Miller is the editor.
We’re finalizing things up right now. We've found a wonderful photo by Jeff Alfier for the cover. He's a great photographer, mostly of abandoned buildings and towns. The one we chose is called is 'Stairway, Michigan Central Train, Detroit (2013).' Abandoned stairs through an arched doorway, with ETERNAL written on the bottom stair. The Fugitive Pigments cover was bright and brash, this one will be subtle. In addition to his photograph, Jeff is the editor of San Pedro River Review, which has published my work. In fact, that's how I became aware of his photos.
Moontide’s editor, Michael Miller and I (with a little help from my husband,) finished up the final fine-tooth combing for typos and errors and other such deadly sins. Arrrgh. Who knew Jello is really spelled Jell-O?
Now the proof is back from the printers. Michael says it looks great. There will be a book launch in March 13 at Muckenthaler Center in Fullerton, CA. It won't be long now.
