A couple of interesting updates:
1.) One of my poems was accepted by Permafrost, a magazine in Alaska, so it looks like my poem will be freezing its hind-end off. I'm very happy to be a part of the Permafrost family, they seem like really nice people, and obviously they love literature, so they're definitely "my kind of people."
2.) I was invited to read at the Mid-Missouri Author's Gala today. I'm really excited to be a part of this cool event and to help promote Missouri writers and literature. I'll be handing out free CD's of my acoustic music + a few tracks of my poetry. It's going to be a good time.
3.) So, lastly, the other day I received an e-mail from an old high school buddy that's in the Navy, and he was tasked to assemble a color guard for a veteran reading event at Union Station in Kansas City. He went on to say he met with the event coordinators, and then made them read "So I Was a Coffin" and now they want me to be a part of the event.
So, this all goes to show that I am worthless without all the support of my friends and family. And, in response, here's a video of what I do when I'm not writing:
