On July 10, 2015, my chapbook The Minstrel of Belmont will be released by Finishing Line Press. Pre-sale began last week and will run until mid-May. The eventual size of the press run will be determined by the pre-sale. The book will cost $12.49 plus $2.99 shipping and handling (US rate).
All poems in this chapbook were written during two poetry challenges during summer 2014, the 2014 Poetry Month sponsored by the Ridgeline Literary Alliance, and 30/30 Challenge by the Tupelo Press. This collection features aikido, fatherhood, and Jewpanese poems, which are all new topics for me. That a collection of poems so fresh is coming out so quickly is a nice turn of events.
I hope you’ll consider reserving a copy. Please look for more announcements regarding this chapbook soon. Thank you.
