|GODS OF WATER AND AIR – A NEW DISCOUNT!|
Aldrich Press has created a beautiful new trailer for my book! It’s my reading of “Flight,” the first poem in my book. It’s on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KaXVkL8cac&feature=youtu.be
I looked at an interesting array of poetry book trailers, and was most taken with Sandra Beasley’s single poem videos, so I decided on a single poem reading. It was fun to make, finding images and music from royalty-free sources. If I were trying to decide whether to buy a poetry book from a trailer, I’d want a good sample of what I would get. And if I just want to enjoy poetry, a single poem trailer gives me that experience for free. Hope you enjoy this one.
It’s a one-to-one affair, a very personal exchange, selling a poetry book of your own. I like that it is so personal, that you have to think about the work and that you’re sharing it with each person who gets one. It’s a way of making new friends, reconnecting with distant friends, and having a silent conversation with readers. One of the things that dazzles me is when someone tells me about a poem I wrote they really loved, and why it knocked them out. Those are things I carry for years, and carry into my new poems. It’s an immense privilege to write and exchange these deep parts of yourself with someone else’s deeper self. I know where every book I’ve personally sold and inscribed is now, and it’s a great feeling. Thanks for reading.
Don’t forget that poetry books make good holiday gifts, and my special offer makes it extra economical: $11.50 direct from me, signed, shipping included. Beat that, Amazon! Email me if you’d like a copy and I’ll tell you where to send a check, or send a Paypal to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
