Here is the cover:
It's hard to see on the screen. When you buy it and receive it, it will be hard to see in your hands. The image is by Nicholas Hughes, it's something I found at Chris Higgs's blog. Some people helped me with the design (Stephanie Barber and Leah Ammerman). This book cover is really light on light.
Let me know if you want to review this book.
1. At JMWW I reviewed Chris O. Cook's book of poems To Lose & To Pretend from Brooklyn Arts Press. It's a great book. Everything in JMWW is fantastic. I like this story, by David Brasfield. Here's a sample:
October 9, 1981That's a great joke and it gets better from there.
All attempts to manufacture sulfuric acid have failed. After discarding the useless chemistry set I received for my birthday, I have rummaged many times through our kitchen cabinet, and I have made many combinations, but have not achieved anything close to science. I tried mixing milk with orange juice, but these proved not to be the acid and base I thought they were. Later, I mixed all the spices and juices and ketchup together, and then added a dash of Tabasco sauce, but this did not produce so much as a puff of smoke. Not even a bubble. Afterwards, I tried to clean up the mess, but our cat, April, would not go near the stuff.
2. Today I remade the Publishing Genius website a little. It's simple and I don't know CSS but I like it.
3. Something about a massive reading at AWP.
