5000+ visitors to KSE blog!

This blog crossed the 5000 visitor mark last night. Thanks to all for visiting!

Doug Draime’s new selection of Oregon-based poems, LOVE & BLUES IN OREGON (KSE #94), is now available. In addition, the reprint of Stuart Crutchfield’s SHACK SIMPLE is out too. And MK Chavez’s awesome VISITATION is flying out of here. Those 3 would be a great combination for our 3-for-$10 deal!

Jim D. Deuchars’s PIECES OF EIGHT, the May release, will be out by May 1st as Jim needs copies for a reading in early May, so check the “available KSE chapbooks” listing to see when PIECES becomes available.

I’m very excited to announce that two fine NY-state poets have joined the KSE roster: John Sweet, who’ll be doing Next Exit: Nine with MK Chavez; and Ronald Baatz, who’ll be doing Next Exit: Seven with Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal.

And… both Michael Layne Heath and Christopher Cunningham will be doing all-new suites of poems for solo chapbooks later in 2008.

If you’ve wanted any of the chapbooks presently in-print, you should act now. About a dozen of them are down to the last few copies, so there will be a wholesale deletion of titles within a month, I’m sure. Four  of the Next Exit titles are already out of print, so it’s no longer possible to collect a complete set. And while the individual poets will surely be using their individual NE poems in other publications or posting them on the internet (as I did with two of mine from NE2), these works will never be reprinted in this format or combined into a book (although I’ve had offers for the latter, which I politely declined).

To publish and distribute NEW poetry monthly by working poets, and then getting these works into readers’ hands literally WEEKS after their composition, is exciting. Thanks to our customers/readers/reviewers for their support.
