Super excited! The cover of my forthcoming collection Our Sudden Museum is in the works. Here is a sneak preview, sent today by the editors of Salmon Poetry in Ireland.
Featured on the cover is the Pennsylvania farmhouse of Sean Horan, a friend, taken by his brother Glen. When I saw the picture on Facebook, I immediately fell in love with it, especially as a possible cover for this book.
Soon the proofs of the poems will arrive, and then it will be off to the presses!
The book will officially launch at the AWP Conference in Washington DC, in early February, 2017.
