Upcoming Book Releases

A few folks have started asking me about what books are in the queue, now that Poet’s Haven is working from a queue instead of a set schedule.  🙂  So here’s some confirmed titles:

“Letter to 20” by Alexis-Rueal (February 1, 2013)
“Like Michelangelo Sorta Said” by Steve Brightman (March 15, 2013)
“Zombies: Haiku in Four Acts” by Joshua Gage (May 17, 2013)
“Back\words & For/words” by Lori Ann Kusterbeck
“It Takes More Than Chance to Make Change” by John Burroughs
“Inside the Walls of a Blackened Book” by A.J. Huffman
“Walking Down Euclid” by Marlana-Patrice Pugh Hamer
“Fractured Blossoms Still Bloom” by Steve Thomas
“A Knight’s Quest” by Matthew Fitzgerald, illustrated by Arianna Cheree
“Vanity Pressing” by Vertigo Xi’an Xavier

One more book has been accepted but is pending author confirmation.  (That’s the problem with having the open submission call in March and not finishing reading all the manuscripts until December.)  Three additional manuscripts are being reviewed and considered at this time.

I should probably explain something… When I say we’re not working from a set schedule, I mean that the frequency books will be released is not on a schedule.  Books will still have scheduled release dates.  The three books you see with release dates marked above correspond with the authors being featured poets at First Friday or Stardust Poetry shows. 🙂

At this time The Poet’s Haven is not openly accepting unsolicited chapbook manuscripts, however we are open to chapbook proposals. If you would like to submit a chapbook proposal, use the “Contact Publisher” link and send an e-mail through the form.  Tell me who you are, describe the chapbook, and send a sample of the material (about four or five pages worth, a few poems or the first chapter).  If it grabs my attention and I’m anxious to read more, I will send you a message soliciting the full manuscript for consideration.

UPDATED 1/5/2013:  One of the two books pending when this list was originally posted has now been confirmed.
