news catchup and stay tuned

Here is my news since last entry ...
Unfortunately, my Mom died on 11/13. A few weeks vanished in the mix.
The new issue of Hungur magazine is out, with my cover design and my article "Unusual Vampire Lore".
I did two new book cover design projects for SamsDot Publishing, but was otherwise busy trying to stay ahead of bills. a.k.a. my stamp/eBay business. Funny how I can sell over $2000 a month in stamps but barely make scratch with anything I create myself. Or NOT so funny.
My poem "The art of fishing" is in Amaze, the Cinquain Journal:
I created two series of custom postage stamps over on Zazzle.com: one set of zoo animal photos, and a set of fractal graphics.
I have some new audio poems over at the Sundown Lounge:
CPU (Podcast #112)
Live reading 7/1/07 (#113)
Smiling sands (#115)
The hole (#116)
Myths wearing thin (in #117)
For reference, the book covers I designed for SamsDot Publishing since September are:
Sometimes While Dreaming, by Marcie Lynn Tentchoff
Potter's Field 2
Pretty, by Philip S. Meckley
The Phantom World, by Gary Crawford
The Ghost People, by James Steimle
The Green Women, by Laura J. Underwood
My own chapbook ("Jane Doe Discovered") should be coming soon.
"At Ripley's" (poem) (an ode to the Ripley's Museum, of all things) is now online at Helix SF:
"Unusual Vampire Lore" (article) now in Hungur magazine, was nominated for a James B. Baker award.
I have a haiku in the Dec 2007 issue of The Shantytown Anomaly.
Oddly, I was asked to write a 30-second Christmas skit to be filmed for a church in the Midwest; I got the thing ready & delivered, but filming was cancelled due to a major ice storm and power outage. Ho ho ho, huh.
These updates are from my new newsletter called "Dark Windows" - biweekly, giving away about 2,000 words of poetry, writing & odd clips per issue. About to post issue #10 this weekend. More info here ...
Stay tuned for a change of direction for this blog...
