Finishing Line Press to Publish Award-Winning Novelists' First Chapbook of Poetry
Cincinnati, Ohio: Finishing Line Press has signed award-winning novelist Carolyn Howard-Johnson for her first chapbook of poetry, Tracings.
To be published the fall of 2005, Tracings will touch chords--both major and minor--for readers interested in nostalgia, tolerance, culture and aging. The author traces her life's experiences and for her it feels like "a movie reel running backwards."
Howard-Johnson's poetry has appeared in literary journals like the Mochila Review, Banyan Review and Poetic Voices and in a variety of journals and magazines, both print and online. One of her poems won The Pedestal Magazine's first annual Readers' Award and her poetry has also been honored by Long Story Short.
The author's first novel, This is the Place, has won eight awards. Her book of creative nonfiction has won three. She is a columnist for Home Décor Buyer as well as several online review sites like www.bookreviewcafe.com, www.sellwritingonline.com and www.myshelf.com, and reviews theater and movies for The Glendale News-Press. She also is an extension division instructor for UCLA’s Writers’ Program and her book THE FRUGAL BOOK PROMOTER: HOW TO DO WHAT YOUR PUBLISHER WON’T is USA Book News' Best Professional Book of the Year. It is published by Star Publish.
The Finishing Line Press has been providing a place for today's poets including a women's series and annual prize since 1998. J. C. Morrison is the editor.
