A Happy Mailbox

It has been a good month for my mailbox.  Today the Arsenic Lobster anthology arrived, and I've really been enjoying the selections.  (Having two of my poems in there is pretty nice, too ;)
You can pick one up here if you're interested.

Book Review in Lines + Stars

I'm excited to see my first book review published outside of Melusine appearing in the new issue of Lines + Stars.  I got the chance to review Jehanne Dubrow's From the Fever-World.  Check it out here, if you like.

My Gargoyle Arrived!

I wasn't expecting it so early in the summer, so this was a wonderful surprise, and the issue looks awesome, thick and chock full of literary goodness.
(And I was pretty happy to see my poem on page 92.)
Again, I think my mood was a bit dark when I wrote it, but my mood was not dark when I opened that package.  This is my first publication in a print journal other than an anthology or college/grad thesis publication, so it's kind of an exciting thing.
I also learned recently that two of my poems from Arsenic Lobster would be published in their anthology for this year, so one particular lonely shelf of my bookcase is starting to feel a bit less lonely.
