My first book, "Poisoned Apples," has been accepted by Pivot Press to be published in May 2003. Aside from this deadpan announcement, I am actually quite excited. I'll post ordering information as it becomes available next year.

My chapbook, "Testaments," is still available from Somers Rocks Press, though its contents are less formal than the book. An internet search for Somers Rocks Press will lead any interested parties to purchasing details.

Congratulations! It's great to see Pivot stepping up and filling a huge void. There are so few places that we can go to, one more is a marvelous thing. Best wishes with it!

Dear Michael:

Thank you. I look forward to buying your book next year and will be ordering "Longing for Laura" shortly.

Wonderful news! Give us a few more details to hold us until the actual publication: length, themes, any poems that eratosphereans might recognize... And let us know of any promotion tours scheduled.

That's great news Wade. First book is the toughest hurdle of all.

Thank you, Alicia, Richard, Chris & Tim.

In answer to your questions about the book, Richard, it will have three sections: two of which are quite simply love poems and elegies, the third is sort of a mix of verse about verse with some additional short monologues and narrative sketches. A good number of the overall contents have been previously published in magazines over the last 20 odd years, so they might be familiar to eratosphereans, but many have been since revised. No official promotion tours are planned right now, though I imagine some possibilities will materialize. The only definite event is that I am giving a reading at my alma mater, Kenyon College, at the end of May as part of the reunion weekend festivities. All my old friends know they can't show up without purchasing a copy. Congratulations on your online chapbook which I intend to print out and read off-screen.

Wade
