BLAZIN' GREAT NEWS!
I'm really heartened to hear that, in a mere two weeks, BlazeVOX Books raised $7,500 which will help resolve the unexpected printer cost snag. Now, think about the implications of a poetry press being able to raise that amount in such a short period....is it Geoffrey Gatza's cooking skills or, maybe, BlazeVOX just publishes damn good books (scroll down for full catalog)!
I'm sure both factors went into consideration -- who wouldn't want a seven-course meal by this poet-publisher-chef-to-the-stars? On the other hand, you should check out the still-available raffle or donation special for goodies from the press' catalogue -- a bargain for many fabuloso books! Like, ahem: MINE!
Bino, btw, says he loves the cover to THE BLIND CHATELAINE'S KEYS -- he says, it reminds him of dungeons in castles. Hm. The Chatelaine looks up from her keyboard, looks about her, giggles...then proceeds to type, Well, some things are not to blog about, you know....and her hand leaves the keyboard to move to her waist where the chatelaine lies (pun intended) in wait...
