I have news I am delighted to be able to share with you! My second book, The Heart is a Muscle, a full-length volume of poetry about farming, resiliency, the complexity of love and loss, and everything else that happens in a human heart, will be released by Swimming with Elephants Publications in March 2020.
We don’t have the exact release date figured out yet, but when we do, you will hear about it here! And of course, like The Bones of This Land, it will be available on Amazon for ease of purchasing, especially for non-local folks. I’ll also do several featured readings throughout Spring and Summer this year, so be on the lookout for event announcements!
And! Kat d’Orazio will be drawing cover art for it! If you’re not familiar with her work, you can check her out on instagram at @flowerhead_art – she is the fabulous tattoo artist & painter who did my “cosmic heart garden” back/arm tattoo.
Swimming with Elephants Publications is run by Kat Crespin – so this book is being created by three people named Kat. I am ridiculously pleased by this.
