Sharing this from my other blog, Pangrammatike. I did some light divination (prayed to Apollon and used the random.org date generator) to settle on October 29. Apologies to anyone who has seen this multiple times. 😅 For many months, I have been working on a poetry collection. If you have ever asked, “What is a … Continue reading More Poetry Book Updates — Shared from Pangrammatike

BTW, on my other web site, here's a short story publication announcement. (The photo is of the volume. Many writers, many good stories!)

In “Ash Shades,” two … Continue reading Publication Update! — Pangrammatike
As 2018 comes to a close, I just want to say four things … This semester was very intense at work.
