Torn, Oil on Wood, 2011 Anna Montgomery

As many of you know, I own a small, independent publishing company that will be releasing two books of poetry (one a collection by Jesse S. Mitchell & another that represents the work of 15 poets from around the world). These books are slated for release in late 2012 and early 2013. For more information about these authors please visit my company website at These projects and my upcoming solo painting exhibition in September require me to take an extended blogging break. In the interim I’ll be reposting some poetry but won’t have the opportunity to participate in many social activities until I am caught up at work. I won’t be visiting other sites with regularity so if you have something you’d like to call my attention to please leave your link in the comment section of the most recent post. I appreciate your patience and look forward to returning to full participation soon.
