About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Since 1973, I have stored literally thousands of poems away in binders or the word processor, plus a novel attempt or two. The novel I was working on at Stanford sits in a trunk of my attic, not reexamined since I left, this even though Wallace Stegner had told me that it was sufficient in its form for a Stanford masters thesis. I have sent out maybe a handful of poems over the years, but without persistence. The only published poem to my credit I paid for, in one of those contests in which you buy the huge tome, if you want to see your work in print. The poetry continues almost daily, with seldom more than a month’s gap between new sequences. When they cease temporarily, I am dismayed. They give form and expression to my days. I have pared this grouping down to the present grouping of 200 poems or so. Others that like preen alone and refuse to coalesce and so have been left for a later distillation. If nothing else, this effort has forced me to shuffle through old bins. Which pretty much fill a closet. Which, if not disposed of, will burden my heirs for years. This is a move in the direction of relieving them of that burden. I am surprised at how well this generally nongregarious lot has managed to cooperate here, or so I imagine. A few may dismay, due to language, but they are few and express what they expressed, at the moment. Spin Pause is the first in a series of recent pursuits, with work progressing quickly on the follow-up.
Deftly constructed at 228 pages, Spin Pause is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Poetry/ Anthologies category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Spin Pause meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $9.95.
Additionally, Spin Pause can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
