I've decided to pick some of the coldest cities on some of the coldest days of this year to go on a mini tour to celebrate the release of my chapbook, Start Here, published by the fabulous folks (okay, one gal, Jen Hyde, who is a whole team of fabulous) at Small Anchor Press. She did an incredible job with the book and I couldn't be happier with it. If you don't live in one of the colder states in the country (lucky you!), and hence won't have a chance to freeze your ass off to come hang out and hear me read (with a whole slew of fantastic poets, including Pilot Poet Joshua Marie Wilkinson, at the venues listed below), but still want to get a copy of the chap, you can do so here.
