"...poetry from a night-blooming blossom... throbbing with incantatory power..."
--John Shirley, author of Cellars, Wetbones and A Song Called Youth
Last year held a major disappointment for me when Septemeber came and went without The Withering being released when it was scheduled to. Now, a year later, I am excited to announce that my second poetry collection, The Withering, has found a new home with Jackanapes Press! Jackanapes Press is a new press run by Dan Sauer, who is well known for his amazing artistic talent. The Withering is forthcoming this autumn.
Here's a recap about The Withering. It originally consisted of the 50 best poems from my preteen and teenage years. I've added 5 more. It features cover and interior art by Mutartis Boswell and an introduction by John Shirley. I've added a notes page with fun facts about certain poems and a list of the poems written chronologically. The four sections are broken down to Nature-Based Horror, Supernatural Horror, Psychological Horror, and Body Horror.
I just received probably one of coolest books I have ever been in and that's Midnight Under the Big Top: Madness, Murder, and Magic by Cemetery Dance Publications. Unfortunately, this edition is already sold out but I heard there will be another print run of this anthology at some point. Cemetery Dance was a household name for me growing up as my dad had purchased the lifetime magazine subscription when it first came out. He died a month before I could tell him I was invited to write for them in this anthology. I wish I could show it to him. It features my poem, Beneath the Fullest Moon. I actually submitted a second poem that was accepted but for some reason, does not appear in it. I have no idea why. Check out this killer line-up!
I just received my contributor copy of Spectral Realms No. 13 by Hippocampus Press. It has a striking cover art created by the talented Dan Sauer. My poem, Lord Death, appears in this issue. Lord Death pairs well with my poem, Lady Death, which can be found in my first collection, Diary of a Sorceress. Lord Death will appear in my third collection, Diary of a Vampyress.

With that being said, The Withering was released of its contract and will not be published with Gehenna and Hinnom Books. To be honest, with the lack of communication from the publisher for so long, I was afraid this would happen and sent off The Withering to another publisher months ago. I still await their judgment.
