I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We had a good one. It didn’t go exactly as we had originally planned — we had unexpected houseguests at the last minute — but we had a fantastic holiday and really excellent weekend. I especially enjoyed hanging out with old friends who no longer live here but were visiting for a few days. Now it is time to get ready for work and school tomorrow, to put up our Christmas decorations, to get back to normal for a few weeks till the next major Series of Holiday Events. (I genuinely love this time of year.)
In the midst of it all, for those of you in the Houston area this coming weekend, here’s something you might enjoy doing Friday evening. There’s going to be a book launch for the new Mutabilis Press anthology, entitled Improbable Worlds, and one of my poems is going to be in it. (Yay!) The poem is called “Recipe for My Daughter.” I hope you’ll join me at the launch! Here are the details:
Friday, December 2nd; 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.; The Jung Center of Houston; 5200 Montrose
And here’s the website for Mutabilis Press:
MP’s website also has information for purchasing the anthology, in case you’re interested. (I was also published in their 2005 anthology Timeslice, in case anyone wants a copy of that as well. It had a lot of really fantastic Houston poets in it, and I was thrilled and humbled to be counted among them. Improbable Worlds will be featuring poets of Texas and Louisiana, if I’m not mistaken.)
If the book launch for Timeslice is any indication, I and many of the other poets featured in the book will be signing copies the night of the event. (I’m also happy to sign any copies other than that night, if you’d like.) I hope to see you there!

What time will you be reading? I don’t land until 8:00 pm, but I’d like to come by even if I miss the actual reading!
Hey there. That would be cool! Sadly, I don’t actually know. If you land at 8:00, I’m guessing you might miss it. The event goes from 6:00 – 9:00. Bummer. Maybe the best thing is for you to send me a text when you land, and I can try to let you know where we are in the process?? It should be fun if you can be there for any of it.
I just got new information today. There will not be a reading, just a reception. Family, friends, students all invited! 🙂
I just ordered the book! Can’t wait to read it.
Yay, thank you! 🙂 There’s some awesome stuff in there.
I rarely leave a response, but I looked at some of the responses here Something Fun To Do This Friday Evening Sappho's Torque. I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or does it give the impression like a few of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I’d like to follow you. Would you list of the complete urls of all your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
Um, thanks? I respectfully disagree about the responses. Are you spamming me??
At any rate, you can follow me easily on Facebook or Twitter; the links are right there on the menu to the side of every post.
And kudos on making your spam look like it actually had a person behind it. 😉
Have a nice day.
