Happy

I'd like to announce that my second book, Notes for My Body Double, will be published next year by Black Lawrence Press.

I've known for a couple of days but have held off announcing until now. Needless to say, I'm excited and pleased!

Party at my place. I supply the place. The rest is up to y'all....

Thanks, Pamela, Suzanne, C. Dale, Jeanine!

Jennifer said...

Whoo Hoo! I'm so excited for you ... isn't the second one supposed to be much harder? And yet you still managed. Wonderful, wonderful news.

Paul said...

Jennifer, that has been my experience. I sent my 1st book out about 15 times, which was nothing, and it was a finalist six or seven times. With this book, it was a finalist even more but out of 50+ plus submissions! So, yeah, it was lots harder, for me at least.

I'm grateful that part of it is over.

That's wonderful news. Would you be willing to submit some poems (not previously or soon-to-be published) to "Willow Springs" (literary magazine)? I'm going to email you an official solicitation letter.

Paul said...

Sure, I'd be happy to....
