THE WOES OF A POETRY PUBLISHER
I was so excited over this order for 11 -- ELEVEN!!! -- copies of one of the poetry books I publish through Meritage Press. The check, as they say, is in the mail.
Weeks later, still no check in mail.
So I did a follow-up email. The so-called poetry lover cancelled her order, noting that she had bought, instead, cooking-related books for purpose of holiday giving....
...really shows something about the role of poetry in popular culture, eh?
Blech. So much for Holiday giving...
Ach. But we slog on, Dear Ones. The Chatelaine ain't even close to being done with you, World!
