My big book release reading was yesterday at Open Books.  I will confess (even though that it's not Tuesday) that I was really nervous.  Open Books is only one of two poetry-only bookstores in the country (and I'm not 100% sure if the other poetry-only bookstore is still in business).  For a poet (and especially a poet in the Northwest), it's a big deal to read here.

For the best photos & documentation of the event, check out Susan Rich's blog.

I'll post more emotional, detailed thoughts on this later, but just wanted to share the news that I feel my book is officially launched!
