Where to Find My Poetry

Some of you started following this blog when I used to post poetry at least once a week. I know that I enjoy the blogs of poets more if I can actually READ THEIR POETRY… So… I figured I should post poetry SOMEWHERE.

Here’s the thing: anything I post in a public forum is counted as “published” by many journals who want worldwide first publication rights (which is nearly all of them). With that in mind, I have decided to post my already book-published poems on my poetry Facebook page.

I am currently posting daily at about 3pm Pacific time poems from my charity book For Those Who Outlast Thier Pain which is currently available on Amazon as paperback or ebook.

Once I get through all of the poems from the charity book, I will post poems from my first perfect bound book The Words I Hold (also available on Amazon).

Thanks to ALL of you for your continued support!
