News, Notes and General Jibber-Jabber!!!!

My new Amazon.com Author page is now live.

I don’t have any idea why I didn’t do this earlier.  I should’ve, but didn’t.  I don’t do the best job of promoting my books in any format.

Tender Mercies, my poetry collection has collected 9 ratings and 3 reviews thus far on Goodreads.com.  The current Rating thus far is 4.44 (out of 5). This is rather heartening to me, and I wish to thank those who have taken the time to add their ratings and reviews.  If you’re so inclined, you can add your own for which I would be quite grateful.

There are three reviews for Tender Mercies, the paperback on Amazon, and one for the Kindle edition.  Did you know you can get an ePub version of TM from Goodreads?  That’s probably because I mentioned it a couple of times and figured you could find it.  Problem is, I didn’t put any bread crumbs out to form a trail.  I really need to take the bull by the horns and do a better job of alerting people to my printed works.  Did you know you can get a Kindlegraph from me?  It’s free, cheap and easy!

There are still a few copies of the limited edition chapbook “Postmarks” (only 50 copies put together by me!) [Ordering information here]  Kathy, who many of you may know as @alotus_poetry on The Twittah, wrote a wonderful review of said chapbook last month.  She’s been taking a much needed break from many of her usual online haunts, but still takes time to write wonderful reviews of some of the poetry collections she’s reading.  That she started with mine is an honor and a true gift.  I believe her points are well made and I am grateful for the thoughtful feedback she gives.  Take a few minutes and give it a read.  You can even thank her as well.

I do not like blowing my own horn nor willfully drawing attention to myself.  I would like to think the words, the poems, the thoughts themselves would do the trick.  I guess I need to get over that a bit, y’know?

Anyhow, if you feel like connecting on Goodreads, I’d love it.  If you’d like to add  your ratings or reviews there or on Amazon, that’d be swell and greatly appreciated.  Again, my thanks to those who already have.
