THE POMEGRANATE PAPERS is my third book of poetry and my ninth book, and it's coming out in April from unbound Content, a small, independent, woman-owned publisher. The book is a full-length collection of my prize-winning poetry about mothering & creativity, and I am inviting you to come along with me on this journey by backing my book tour in April and May. 

I live in South Carolina, and two years ago, I did a double book tour for my novel and poetry collection that came out that year, driving over 3000 miles up and down the east coast at my own expense in one month. 

This time I plan to fly to several venues (I'm going to Kansas to read with the state poet laureate there! O Dorothy!) and maybe I'll even get a hotel room in one or two of the cities. (Mama heaven! A clean room of one's own for a night!

I am also happy to give a poetry reading and writing workshop in your city-- see the Special Group Offers. 

I hope you enjoy the video and I look forward to sending you the gifts and goodies that will help you on your own journey as people who are interested in poetry and in balancing parenting and creativity.
