Review by Grady Harp at Goodreads. Three of the poems are in the review.


Paul Newman Blues was chosen by Full of Crow as one of its mini-chapbooks to publish in 2010 but has never appeared on their personal website due to personal problems with the editor managing these. I have a few copies. Contact me, if interested.

The Nature of Attraction, co-authored with poet Scott Owens, was released late July 2010 by Main Street Rag. It can be ordered at as long as the supply lasts. No re-runs will be published. Cost is seven dollars plus postage. A review of the book is in Pirenes Fountain. Scroll down the reviews page to read it. A blog review is just recently out about the book as well.



Also: Lummox Press released my first full length poetry book, Sea Trails. fall of 2009. The book includes poems based on my 1977 sailing trip in  my 22 foot sailboat and includes portions of log notes, some charts, and photos. I'm excited.  Order at Lummox Press or Amazon. I have a few personal copies for sale. Click on my cover at Lummox to find not only a paypal button, but excerpts from the book. Signed copies can be requested under 'special instructions' or an email to the editor after the order is placed. We can't provide signed ones from Amazon. The book has been reviewed in Wild Goose Review, Pedestal Magazine and on Goodreads. Lummox tells me it's one of the press's best sellers ever. Cost has been reduced from 15 dollars plus postage to 12 dollars.
