Doug Draime and Misti Rainwater-Lites, the ultimate poetry Tag Team!!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 9:48 pm

Just finished editing our next chapbook, due September 1 or so, NEXT EXIT: THREE, featuring Doug Draime AND Misti Rainwater-Lites. Like the previous two NEXT EXIT collections, this features short poems exclusive to this project that focus on small towns. Doug was co-writer (with me) on the first volume, and his poems were so hard-hitting and achingly beautiful, and he enjoyed doing it so much, that I asked him to put together material for another volume. As for Misti, anyone who’s read her work knows that she is a master of detail and particularity, and no one writes more powerfully about the hellish soul-destroying aspects of smalltown Texas life, so I was ecstatic when Misti agreed to join the project. Travel with Misti and Doug through such American towns as

Wheatland, Indiana

Dodge City, Kansas

Nederland, Texas

Chico, Texas

Freelandville, Indiana

Beverly Hills, California

Bridgeport, Texas

East St. Louis, Illinois

Fredericksburg, Texas

Wichita Falls, Texas

Seymour, Texas

Big Sur, California

12 exciting new poems from two of America’s most exciting poets…for only $4.00 ppd. in North America. This will be a limited edition of under 90 copies, so act fast. Check or well-concealed cash to Bill Shute, 8200 Pat Booker Rd. #399, San Antonio, Texas 78233. You can send your order now and it will be shipped on September 1. And why not buy some of our other fine poetry chapbooks? Scroll down for a list posted in July. The more you buy, the cheaper the per-unit price. Doug and Misti are surely two of my five favorite working poets–to have them together in one chapbook is, for me, a dream come true.
