Hi, Michael Seidlinger curated this is an incredible, incredible preview of upcoming indie press releases. I wrote about books by Russ Woods, Joseph Riippi, Bianca Stone, Danniel Schoonebeek, Carina Finn, and Alexis Pope.
And also, Molly Gaudry wrote the following about I’M JUST HAPPY TO BE HERE and it made me smile:

I’m just happy to be here, too, so I can read this book! Even if I do suspect it might break my heart. Let it! Because my further suspicion is that it will probably then pick up the pieces and put them back together, so perfectly that you’ll never see the cracks.

Another thing is how the hell do people write blurbs for books they haven’t read, jesus christ. Anyways, I tried and we’re still trying and I can’t wait to read these books guys.
FULL THING HERE.

I’m excited to announce the Lettered Streets Press. Josh Young and I have been talking about this forever, since our time at Western Washington University’s MA, at least. We wanted to provide a venue for exciting new work, young voices, cross-genre forms, and interesting projects. Josh, Abigail…

My fourth book of poems, The Book of Joshua, will be published by Black Ocean in June of 2014. In July and August, I plan on driving around the country to read from it with Joshua Marie Wilkinson and Mathias Svalina and some rotating special guests. We are just now beginning to plan that tour.
I would like several of the stops to be in people’s houses or in public spaces in small towns away from any typical route. If you’d like us to read in your town and if you have a good idea for a spot for a reading, please send me an email before the end of the year. Here is a general timeline of where we’ll be and when: 
July 18 -25: Between Portland and Omaha. 
July 28 - Aug 3: Between Omaha and Boston. 
Aug 3 - 10: Between Boston and Atlanta. 
August 10 - 18: Between Atlanta and Tucson. 
August 18 - 23: Between Tucson and Portland.

In theaters this Halloween, comes a new vision of horror like you’ve never seen before. From the twisted mind of Wes Anderson, it’s “The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders”, starring Owen Wilson as a man in danger.

holy shit, this seems like the best thing ever and i super want it to be real
