If you’re an avid reader of haiku, you may already be familiar with the “New Resonance” series of anthologies from Red Moon Press. If not, they’re well worth exploring: They’ve won at least seven Haiku Society of America’s Merit Book Awards, and the poets featured in their pages often go on to do great things in the haiku community.
(a previous year’s edition of the anthology)
I’m very proud to have been selected for inclusion in the ninth edition of the anthology along with sixteen other poets.
As part of the publication process, I receive 25 copies of the anthology, which I’m making available for pre-order now so I can pay for my portion of the publication costs (yes, fiction friends, Yog’s Law(!!!)—but haiku works a bit differently in this particular case).
Using the form below, you can place a pre-order for a copy, and ask me to inscribe it to you or someone else (or not), and give me a topic to write a haiku along with that inscription, if you like. The book is slated to come out in May of 2015, so you should receive your copy in the mail from me by early June.
I’m selling my copies for $15.00 USD ($2.00 less than the price on the Red Moon Press website), and if you live in the US I’ll throw in free shipping. Unfortunately, the USPS has apparently decided they’ll go bankrupt if they continue to ship things overseas at reasonable prices, so shipping to Canada or elsewhere costs more.
To show my gratitude to anyone who pre-orders, I’ve created a chapbook of my haiku and tanka, called Stray Cats, which isn’t available anywhere else. I’ll e-mail you a copy upon receiving your pre-order for New Resonance 9 via PayPal, and will include a printed version of it when I mail you your copy of the anthology. If you just want to buy the chapbook, that works for me (you’ll see a second order form for that, below the one for New Resonance 9).
So, to recap:
- I’m taking pre-orders for New Resonance 9
- I’ll personalize your copy and write a poem in it
- I’ll also send you a chapbook
- I’ll also also e-mail you a PDF of the chapbook
- If you want to just buy the chapbook, that’s cool too
I’d love to share my work with you, and would greatly appreciate your support to make that happen.
