Nights Since vol. 1 chapbook


n 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, as well as my continued survival. The chapbook will be a limited edition run—only for the people who pre-order it—most likely 100 copies, but if there’s enthusiastic response, then up to 300 copies. Each copy will be numbered and stamped. The chapbook cost is $15 (+$3 S&H).

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.

One hundred copies have been reserved, so this chapbook will be produced!

Thank you to everyone who reserved and pre-ordered a copy so far.

If you have not yet, you can still pre-order a copy for the next couple of weeks, while I’m running pre-order process and working on book production details. I will only print the exact number of pre-ordered copies. The more copies are pre-ordered the more I can do with Lightship Press.

Thank you!
