Thanks for reading.
Thanks for commenting.
Thanks for writing.
Thanks for the poems.
Thanks for keeping your own blog.
Thanks for linking to my blog.
Thanks for all the things I forgot to say thank you for.
Thanks for the things I never knew or noticed.

Thanks. Thank you.  Thx.

Letters From the Emily Dickinson Room (White Pine Press Poetry Prize)

To kick things off, I'm giving away a signed copy of my new book, Letters From the Emily Dickinson Room (White Pine Press Poetry Prize).  If you already have one, you can still enter as I'd be happy to sign it for someone else.

If you'd like to win this book, just leave me a note in the comments that says something you are grateful for by December 31th, 2010.

I'll randomly pick a winner on January 1st, 2011 and help you celebrate the new year.

The second way I'd like to give away a few books is in "loaner copies."

NOTE:  I am currently out of loaner copies.  Thanks everyone!  I have sent them all out into your hands... Enjoy!

I know this year has been hard on many and many of us have been scrimping on things to save money.  While it's almost impossible for me to scrimp on books (I am an out-and-about bibliophile), I know some of us view poetry books as a "treat," and can't give in to every temptation.

So I've been thinking about how you too could get my book and I decided I can't make sure you win a contest (as that's cheating) and I'm not really sure who has wanted to buy my book, but hasn't because they just haven't had the extra money, so I've come up with Loaner Books.

Here's how it works:

I've set aside a few copies of my book (I even put old fashioned library checkout cards in them) and if you want a copy of my book to read because you haven't really been able to afford it,  and I will mail you one of these copies.

When you are done with reading my book, the only thing I ask is that you pass it on to someone else to read.  And then they can do the same.

Does that make sense?  (It does in my mind, but these days that doesn't mean much.)

It's kind of my own little library except no late fees, no return dates, no record keeping, and well, there's only one book.

 I'll let you know at the end of this post when I am out of them.

So there we are, your free ways to get a copy of my book:

(Sorry, all out!)

Happy Everything!

I'm out!
Loaner Copies are all out in the world!  Thanks for writing!  

Thanks. Thank you. Thx!
