I am pleased to announce that I was recently interviewed in the Australian literary journal, The Daily Write. Would you like to know a little more about me? If so, you can read the interview here:
There is a lot of interesting reading there, so be sure to check it out. Also, if you click on at least one of their ads, you will help to support the journal.
I am pleased to announce my brand new, original project:
Wordsongs - Facebook Chapbook #1: Perspective View Of The Endless New
THE FIRST EVER ORIGINAL POETRY CHAPBOOK
ACTUALLY PUBLISHED AS A FACEBOOK PAGE !!
A MULTI-MEDIA CYBERSPACE EXPERIENCE !!
ABSOLUTELY FREE !!
See it here: www.facebook.com/591180474377593
Is it possible, at this late date, to do something completely original on Facebook, something that has never been done? I believe I have done just that! Once again, I believe I have created something completely original! I believe I have created the first ever, original poetry chapbook, actually published as a Facebook page.
—Not a book promotion page, promoting a book in print, an eBook or a book series.
—Not an ongoing poetry posting page, nor an anthology or poetry contributing group.
—This is an actual chapbook: a single, original, multi-media chapbook with thirty poems, published as an actual Facebook page.
It is not published in any other form. It is a multi-media experience: A performance poetry chapbook; that you read, listen to and watch. I have found no evidence of anything else like this out there: no other original chapbook that exists as a Facebook page, published for that explicit purpose.
But . . . I predict that this will become a trend. I predict that in the near future there will be hundreds, even thousands of poetry chapbooks published as Facebook pages and many multi-media ones.
BUT I DO BELIEVE THAT THIS IS THE FIRST !!!

I hope you enjoy it.
My intention with this blog is to catalog and update my progress as I pursue my writing career in retirement. I will be posting about poetry events I am involved in, as well as the publishing and performing of my work. Here you can observe my adventures. Feel free to comment.
