Two More Readings in 2014

I have two more readings in 2014.  It's all that's standing between you and 2015. That's ALL.

On Thursday December 11th at 7:30 I'll be reading at Tommy Pico and Morgan Parker's birthday party.  Here's  the facebook RSVP link.

On Tuesday December 16th, I'm reading at FREE WATER at KGB Bar on East 4th St in the East Village.  Here's the Facebook link.

Subscribe to Octopus Books one or 2 Year Packages

Octopus Books writes: 


As a small independent press, the best way for anyone to financially support Octopus Books, is to purchase our books. Because we are trying to grow our press, by publishing 5 or more poetry titles per year, we could really use your help now more than ever. 




We are now offering both 1 year and 2 year subscriptions to our future catalog, and your subscription purchase will go a long way in helping us afford those costs up front. A subscription to our next 5 or 10 books would make for a good holiday gift for yourself or for someone who isn’t you but is still someone whom you like or maybe love.


If you buy a one year subscription, we’ll send you a bonus book from our back catalog (except for Picasso’s Tears by Wong May). For a two year subscription, we’ll send you two bonus books of your choice (or Picasso’s Tears). If you buy a subscription for a friend, we’d be happy to send the bonus book(s) to you if you’d like. 

Octopus Books happens because of the volunteer hard work and energy of about a half dozen people. We do this only because we love what we make and we believe in what we do. Please consider supporting us, and we’ll reward you with the best books of poems we can muster. Thank you.

Click here for more details and to subscribe.  And pasted details are below. You get my next book BROADAX with either option!  Huzzah!
