EDIT: This video is now available to everyone as an example of some of the special content my Patreon supporters get.
I’m trying something new today for all my Patreon supporters—Morning Readings (a.k.a. Pre-coffee Rambling). I got up, limped over to my balcony, opened the window to hear the birds, and set to putting together a little semi-improvised poetry reading of one of my favorite poems, just for all of you! Here it is, unvarnished, unedited, unlit, and unkempt:
Friday, April 27th – reading “Poem in Thanks” (Thomas Lux) at 6:20 AM in Toulouse.
Ta daa! TL; DR: A Redditwriters Mixtape is finally available on Amazon! Head on over to get your copy, and please, please leave reviews (especially if you like it) and spread the word. All proceeds go to charity, so the more people who buy it, the better.
And yes, there will soon be a print version on Createspace. We’re having some difficulties on the technical end of things, so expect that in a few days.
News news news! The past few months, I’ve been co-editing an anthology of stories and poetry with a whole bunch of fine people. And today, we have a release date! The anthology will be available as of March 30th, via Amazon.com and Createspace.com. Here’s a bit more info.
All proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders, so please, grab a copy and spread the word!
He was called, in the southwest where his reputation spread, Lean Wolf. And in those places, where desperation is a familiar companion, it was clear why. But his was not a want of material wealth, nor even a want of basic sustenance. For he prowled the byways and backwoods and the highways like his namesake, and like his namesake, was cunning, and like his namesake, had what he needed from the land, and from the lesser creatures. Also like his namesake, he was feared, and rumor flared about him, calling him many dark things, though by and large he was not so.
In truth, Lean Wolf was a man, like many others, but one who knew his hunger and grew close to it, like a lover. It was in the early days his strength, and in later days, a trusted friend.
