Sandy Longhorn Features The Little Office on her Blog Today

I was so tickled to wake up this morning and see that blogger poet Sandy Longhorn has posted a review of my new book, The Little Office of the Immaculate Conception, on her wonderful blog, Myself the Only Kangaroo among the Beauty. Thanks, Sandy!

I know just about anyone who blogs knows this already, but Eduardo C. Corral (Lorcaloca) has just won the Yale Younger Series of Poets Prize. Hooty-hoot and a woot, woot, woot!

If you live in the Seattle area and want to go out and hear some poetry tomorrow night, why don't you come on over to Redmond's Soul Food books and have a listen to me and my buddy Tom Hunley, along with some open mic poets? Here's the goods:
