Effing Press

effing press just accepted Whole Milk. Thanks to Scott Pierce. Feel as much relief as excitement. Whole Milk has been with me for a few years now. I knew it was a chapbook, but just couldn’t make it into one. didn’t know who I wanted to do it with. Then I did, and now I do. Effing it is.

That's absolutely horrendous.

Ribbing!

Great work, brother. Keep it up.

Maybe you can blog an entry about your process from angry and embittered to working the submissions and creating a body of work.

Most people don't know it's possible with a bit effort.

In other words, there is no waiting.

Whole Milk has been my favorite from you. It embodies magic, love, and sacrifice. That poor elephant. The flood. Mmmm. Nutritious and delicious.

I will buy it. The first chapbook I will ever buy. What's the cover going to be? How about drawing us a picture?
