Kindle Me Softly

With all the free eBooks and friend’s eBooks I have downloaded over the past three years, I finally gave in and bought a Kindle. It isn’t a fancy schmancy one, just a Kindle e-reader.

A Sundry of Subjects

Anthology   In April, I kicked off National Poetry Month with an idea regarding an anthology. I figured if I collect enough interest, I would publish an anthology regarding violence through Baer Books Press, and all proceeds would go to Futures Without Violence.
