Little Lark Press launches!
I've wanted to begin a small press for years! I've finally done it.
First (and currently the only) upcoming book is an anthology of poetry on addiction. Addiction being a broad term, I am looking at work that follows any vein, including but not limited to: drugs, alcohol, food, the internet, sex and love.

"I am a patient" I whisper in my head
and I should be treated like one
please take care of me
as I lie in this bed
with my insides burning
scared to death of this disease
my bones ache
I tremble and sweat
and cry as I stare out the window at the parking garage
where my car is parked, waiting for me to escape this nightmare
I wish I could say I'm here because I'm brave
