Welcome to my new bloggy home.  I’ve got three major poetry projects coming out in the next three years.  But Our Princess Is in Another Castle is a book of prose poems inspired by video games, and will be published by Rose Metal Press in March 2013.  I got off the train at Ash Lake is a novella-in-verse set at a lake resort in Wisconsin in the early part of the 20th century, and is forthcoming from sunnyoutside in 2013.  Finally, Yes is a chapbook of poetry about clouds, prayers, and children, due from Parallel Press in May 2014.

I’ll be using this blog to offer news (book trailers, covers, sample poems, readings, reviews, etc.) about the books, but also for sharing and thinking about all kinds of poetic goodness.
