This is wonderful, exciting news! Will the book be available through Amazon or some other way to order? I am eager to purchase a copy and will write a review.
Your essay was very complete and inspirational. I will follow your advice if I get to the point of looking for a traditional publisher. At this point I have mostly prepared my own chapbooks and given them to friends and family as gifts. But at some point it would be satisfying to go to a traditional publisher.
I am so proud of you and look forward to owning a copy of your book! Love the title and the simple, elegant cover design too!
