I’m thrilled to announce that my second poetry chapbook is now available for pre-order. FLP bases my print run on pre-orders, so if you are planning to purchase the book, it would help me a ton if you’d do that now. It will ship on its pub date, November 30, 2018. Thank you so much for your support!
