Hello. I’m delighted you’re here! Thank you for your willingness to spend a few minutes with me in this virtual setting. This reading isn’t long; it’s all of 6 minutes/45 seconds and if nothing else it gives you an idea as to what you’ll find in my newest book of poems, Letters to Borges. I hope you enjoy this…
If you like what you hear and you’re tempted to buy the book, I couldn’t be happier. Well, actually I could. Buy the book, then take a moment to comment or write a review on an Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, my blog, your blog, facebook, twitter…Well, you get what I mean. I would be ever-so-grateful. It takes a village to sell a book and authors, poets especially, need all the help they can get. But more importantly, should you decide to purchase Letters to Borges, I hope you enjoy the poetry. And if you choose not to (buy), I hope poetry finds its way to you in some other form. Look around you. It’s everywhere!
Thanks ever so much!
