Big news! On January 2, I'll be releasing a new book of poetry!
GUIDE ME, O RIVER is a collection of the various poems I've written over the first half of my life. There are poems of love gained and love lost, poems on the travails of a father trying to work hard at a white collar job while holding down a house and raising children, and poems about a love of nature and longing to be back in the forest.
The Kindle version is available for pre-order now. Go here to order yours: mybook.to/GuideMe
A paperback version will also be available on the release date.
Even though releasing immediately after Christmas is about the dumbest thing you can do for sales, the date of January 2 is very significant to me. This was my grandmother's birthday. But she wasn't just beloved as my grandmother. Verna Lee Hinegardner was poet laureate of Arkansas. She released numerous books of poetry in her lifetime, wrote a regular poetry column in the local newspaper, served many different roles in poetry societies, and won lots of awards, including being inducted into the Arkansas Writers' Hall of Fame. She even invented a poetry form, called the "Minute." Most of all, she loved encouraging children to write poetry and express themselves in writing... including me. I can't think of a better way to honor her.
I also need reviewers and ARC readers. If you're interested, please let me know!

Cheers and happy reading!
