Small Potatoes

Sirrus Poe, Fiction Editor at Verse Libre and author/poet has a review of my chapbook, Abrasions, in today's Small Potatoes. Thank you, Sirrus. You captured the essence of what I set out to do in this collection very well. I hope each of you will take the time to read his review and to read more from Small Potatoes while there.

Sirrus Poe is also the generous webmaster of Poets Who Support Survivors, linked in my right-hand column, which has already raised a significant amount of money for victims of Katrina. If you click the link and read his offer to poets, you'll see why I use the word, generous.

By the way, for anyone who might be interested in owning my chapbook, it can be ordered from Rank Stranger Press. I should mention that you'll also find excellent books listed there by Jim Chandler, Ron Androla, Carter Monroe, D.B. Cox, Tim Peeler and more.

Congratulations on becoming a Small Potato Pris! I've left a comment for Sirrus on his site, re- his review; he seems to have got under your skin pretty well.
I think your work is overdue for more recognition - today, small potatos; tomorrow, The Big Cheese?
Geoff.

Thanks, G
He did write a really nice review, didn't he? Potatoes and Cheese. I've always loved that combination. I know he'll appreciate your comment , too. Now I'll have to go look and see what you said:-)

what in tarnation is a chapbook?

Pris said...

Michelle thanks!

C, chapbooks are small books put out by small presses that specialize in tiny poetry books. The books can vary from very simple, stapled together books with cover to perfect bound. They're often taken along at readings if the people there want to buy some of the poet's work. In my case, the publisher paid to have my chapbook done, a very generous offer. He liked my poetry and wanted to make it available.
