Halloween Poem

My Halloween poem is up at the Science Fiction Poetry Association's website. It's a recording, so no reading required. And it's short. Check it out here.

New Poems

It's been a productive three months.  I've had 16 poems accepted in various magazines and journals. Today I got word that a humorous haiku (senryu) was accepted at Beyond Centauri, and a few days ago I placed my first long poem (50 lines or over) at Nightblade Magazine for their special poetry issue (out in November or December I think). Should be a good one. There will be a limited edition print run as well as a PDF.

Ideomancer also accepted one of my poems, and any day now I should have "Sentient Shadows Rise" up on the halloween page of the SFPA. That one's in audio, and thanks to Garage Band, in a much deeper,  sexier voice than my own.

On Writing

Say much with little, or little with less, and if you've nothing to say, say nothing at all.

Cooking Good Stories

“You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients.” Julia Child

She might have been giving advice on writing.

The Best Poems

The best poems aren't those you have to read more than once, but those you want to read more than once.
