A good problem to have...we're running out of room for new book announcements.
But here's Jeanie's newest book from Red Bird Chapbooks, dear little fist.
8.5" x 5.5" single signature with hand sewn binding.
Published February 2018, $12
Here's what the publisher had to say about this chapbook:
"In dear little fist, Tomasko crafts a collection that mirrors the many ways a heart can beat, sometimes frantic, sometimes steady, and sometimes strikingly quiet. Moving from poignant to funny and back and dealing with a palpable sense of angst connected to the questions of what it means when you can't trust your heart, Tomasko delivers moments of softness, contemplation, and wanting that resound in rhythms reflecting arrhythmia. The next moment is not always what you expect, but you must carry on with it and follow where they lead."

Canoeing a River with No Name
Poems by Ronnie Hess
Follow poet Hess on this riverine journey of thoughtful, nuanced poems. Hess' unique voice can come across as almost matter-of-fact, yet there are depths to her poetry that belie this seemingly straightforward tone. Rocks and rapids lie just underneath the gentle current and surprises wait around the next bend.
