A Snip of Teaching, A Dash of Poetry, A Little Noir for Spice

It's been way too long since I have updated this blog. This is a sort of what's new post to catch everyone up on some of the things that are happening.

I am teaching Creative Writing at Rowan University and Comp classes at Gloucester County College and even though I am struggling with pain I am so loving teaching! I feel really lucky to be able to spend my day talking about my favorite thing in the world: writing.

 In case you haven't heard, my first poetry chapbook, Threads, is being published by Finishing Line Press. Pre-sales dates are November 27, 2012 through January 11, 2013. You may know that the print run will depend solely on pre-sales figures. So, please order my book during the pre-sales time period. If you want me to read, visit, sign copies or even bake you a cake, I will do it!

Tim Batten has designed this gorgeous cover. Check out his fine work at his website:  http://www.tim-batten.com

In other news, my Noir short, Burn, has been published by YELLOW MAMA in their Halloween issue. This is a site that publishes hardboiled and noir horror stories so it is definitely not for the squeamish or the easily offended. Hope you enjoy the story and everything else in the issue!
