nights since (vol. 2)
This is the second volume of nights since. In the 33 nights between February 20th and March 25th of 2019 I continued to write poems—one each night. This chapbook is the result of this process. I am continuing to write every night with intent to document the emotional landscape of being without a home, so there will be future volumes of these series of chapbooks.
This book is self-published to support me in my own personal journey of survival, thrival and continued existence, as well as to raise support for my new endeavor—Lightship Press, a name for my efforts in supporting publishing other poets’ work, which will eventually become a true small press.
Thanks to the first volume of ‘nights since’ and additional fundraising efforts by the community of poets Lightship Press now has 100 ISBN numbers and a few books scheduled to go in production. The first being ‘Homesick Season’ by Kate Leddy.
The pre-order process will last until there are enough pre-orders to cover printing expenses. I estimate this book going to print in sometime in July.
The chapbook will be a limited edition run—depending on how many copies get pre-ordered. The chapbook cost is $15 (+$4 S&H).
There only 38 copies left of Nights Since Volume One.
nights since (vol. 1)
In the 33 nights between January 18th and February 19th I wrote 33 poems. I typeset them into a 40-page 5x7 chapbook titled nights since (volume one). I will continue to write a poem each night until i find another semi-permanent home, so there may eventually be a volume two. The poetry is this chapbook is mostly raw and unedited—just as it was written. These poems are about life, all of it, as colored by being without a permanent home.
This chapbook release is to raise some money for a new endeavor called Lightship Press, a small press dedicated to helping authors to put their work out into the world. Specifically to get ISBN numbers & set up the website for the press. I feel it would be appropriate that poems written from the bottom of the well serve as footholds to climb out of the well or at least glimpse some light above.
With help of Impact Printing the first volume of Nights Since series has been printed. There are a total of 180 copies of this book. Each copy is numbered and stamped. Pre-orders and orders are being shipped right now. I will make the announcement for Lightship Press later on June/July.
The chapbook will be a limited edition run at 180 copies.
The chapbook cost is $15 (+$4 S&H).
Thank you to everyone who ordered a copy so far. If you have not yet, there are still copies available.
