Five years ago, after I started to write all of these personal books, I wanted find a way to reach toward a wider audience without losing control of content, copyright and cost. And I wanted results fast, at my speed, really fast. The traditional publishing marketplace is definitely not that! “And then I saw it,” as Mike Nelson used to say all the time on Sea Hunt. I founded a publishing company, bought my own ISBN numbers, and then DIYed very nice print versions of This Fall; Last Spring; First, Summer; A Mind of Winter (including its component parts now published separately as The Imagination and Spring Forward); and Harvest (all collections of personal essays); and slights: my new tiny poems from here not there; Li Po-ems; Harvest Moon; and In the Dark (all poetry). I also published two re-mixes gathering many of the poems I wrote earlier in my career: Mornings . . . After and Beginning Was. All are available now for free here and at cost in paperback format @Amazon.com.
