November News-Dump

Lots of things afoot here at Grey Book Press. If you know me even a little bit, then you won’t be surprised this calls for a bulleted list:

  • First and foremost, we recently published a mini-chapbook in conjunction with Sandra Simonds’ Wildlife imprint—“Terrarium of the Frame” by Laura Carter. We did a limited run of 50 copies. The book was launched at a reading in Atlanta this past weekend, and most of the copies are gone. We have a few copies left; I’m hesitant to put up a Paypal “button” because I wouldn’t want to sell more than we have. Contact us (greybookpress at gmail dot com) if you’re interested, and we can work something out. (Or, I’ll let you know we’re all out. When that happens, there could very well be a second printing . . . although it wouldn’t be through GBP.)

  • While Laura and Sandra were reading in Atlanta this weekend, we were in St. Augustine at the Florida Literary Arts Coalition’s “Other Words” Conference. We had a great time; the conference was nice, too. There was a panel on chapbook publishing headed up by Gianna Russo of Yellowjacket Press.

  • I have a couple manuscripts that are likely to materialize as chapbooks in the coming months. More details soon.

  • New website is almost ready. More details soon.
