After completely relocating my home office into the new home, I've finally gotten back to the grind I've been avoiding so well (I avoid everything well, don't I?) and there is much to be announced.
dim lights, dim reality the very first of my self-published chapbooks has been released! you can find it exclusively on this website in the store section, now for only $1.99. I have been absolutely amazed with the amount of orders and discussions over DLDR that I've had and part of this avoidance to get online has come from a very deeply overwhelming gratitude for every single person that has helped or taken part in purchase. If you cannot tell from the exhausted adjectives, I am beyond appreciative for all of the support, love and reviews and have continued signing copies well beyond the limited release. All the following copies are currently being released as first editions, however there has been discussion of adjusting the copies to make them more affordable for the lowly poet to produce. For now, the first edition copies come with handwritten confirmation of their edition status in the inner page of the back cover (similar to how the limited edition copies were identified). I'm still unsure of how fixed the first edition will be, but for now we're leaving it at a steady thirty with potential of reaching fifty.
Aside from DLDR, I've also been in discussion about starting a publishing house of my own between a few close contacts I've developed over the years. It's in very rough beginnings, but it's an exciting concept and one I hope to share around as much as possible in hopes anyone, however inexperienced, can tag along for the journey. If you know anything about publishing please get in contact with me!
It's been a really big few months and I'm very excited with everything that's coming. I've been teasing around with talk of new chapbooks and I can reveal there will be at least one new chapbook coming out this year, a much smaller and simpler version of the first but with an incredibly strong theme for this new time in my life. I hope to continue making my work readily available to those who need it most and I thank everyone for helping to get me here.
Please be staying safe around the world, staying honest,
