Ooooh. Here's a post I can begin by simply copying what Mark Young said! To wit:
Better Homes Through Poems

Reb Livingston has organized a new shopfront at Lulu. She writes about it slightly more fully at We Who Are About To Die, but I've excerpted below part of her post.

"There are a number of other independent poetry presses who use Lulu for printing and distribution. One hurdle for us is that it’s not really easy to find our books on Lulu if you don’t specifically know what you’re looking for. There are A LOT of poetry titles. If one quickly browsed the poetry category, one might get the impression that there aren’t any books she’d be interested in. I’ve been thinking of ways to address this hurdle and came up with Better Homes Through Poems. It’s an indie-cooperative bookstore featuring over 100 titles from Bloof Books, Blue and Yellow Dog Press, Coconut Books, Dusie Press Books, Horse Less Press, Meritage Press, No Tell Books, Otoliths Books, Scrambler Books and more to come.

"These are books by such poets as Tom Beckett, Kristy Bowen, Shanna Compton, Bruce Covey, Mark Cunningham, Peter Davis, Denise Duhamel, Jill Alexander Essbaum, Raymond Farr, Elisa Gabbert, Kimiko Hahn, Shafer Hall, Shane Jones, Jennifer L. Knox, Sueyuen Juliette Lee, Amy Lemmon, Reb Livingston, Karen Llagas, Rebecca Loudon, Valerie Loveland, Natalie Lyalin, Kendra Grant Malone, Gina Myers, Danielle Pafunda, Karl Parker, Kathleen Rooney, Larry Sawyer, Ravi Shankar, Paul Siegell, Eileen R. Tabios, Elizabeth Treadwell, Nico Vassilakis, Mark Young and many others.

"It’s certainly worth your time to visit. Go on now . . . support independent poetry publishing and live a better life."

Better Homes Through Poems can be found HERE.

Thanks to Reb for putting this "storefront" together. And I'm also pleased to announce that Better Homes Through Poems is the recipient of Galatea Resurrects #15's Publisher Prize! Ach: so many many reasons to write for Galatea Resurrects!
