The theory of the loser class -- arrived

It is here. I am blown away by Darren Wershler-Henry's design; I am too scared to read the book all the way through; I am feeling strange, proud, overwhelmed, sad. There's always a sense of loss when the poems become a book. But I know this is the best poetry I have written. It's a very good day. I am extremely lucky.

Also: congrats to Sachi, Jani and Gill who were all winners today. My wonderful friends.

I'm restless. My book should be at my door this week. I know it will be a lovely object, it's just the writing I'm worried about. You get to a point where you've looked your poetry over so often, rewritten it, etc, that you can't really look at it anymore.

I've also sent off the first Snare book to the printer. Jason Christie's Canada Post is quite the debut. Very peculiar and witty poetry. I redesigned the cover at the last minute and I think it will pay off...

New website again

So I redid the website again. Using the trusty old freeware. I think it's much better this time. And the true cover of The Theory of the Loser Class is up now. Imagine it embossed, on lovely textured paper. I love Coach House.

Here it is:

Tell me what you think ok?
