If you are looking for a library copy of Inappropriate Sleepover, the libraries where you can check one out/get it through interlibrary loan (that I know of) are the Iowa State University library (Parks Library), the Ames (Iowa) Public Library, and the Williamsburg (Iowa) Public Library. Of course, it can still be ordered from the press, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.

This past week, the Octagon Center for the Arts started selling copies of Inappropriate Sleepover. It's cool to have copies of the book in such a lovely space.

Over a week ago, I found out that my second full length manuscript Butter Sad was a semi-finalist in the Press 53 competition. Butter Sad has been a finalist or semi-finalist five times now. I'm glad various presses are connecting with it.

On May 3rd, I will be reading at the Taproom Poetry Series in Lawrence, Kansas with the wonderful Jennifer L. Knox.

I'm reading in Minneapolis in less than two weeks.

Things have been so busy lately that I feel a little bit like this.
