So pleased to find my book at #37 in Amazon’s new poetry books about nature this morning! And thanks also to Washington University for listing Inheritance Of Aging Self on their bookshelf as well!
A little self-google last night led to my finding that Inheritance Of Aging Self was listed as #36 in new releases in death, grief, and loss poetry. A little lower today, but still a solid top 50 hit! Thank you so much to everyone who has purchased the book!
Look what I was working on this weekend! Inheritance Of Aging Self is just about ready to go to the printer and into the mail. Thanks to all of you who have purchased copies so far, I really appreciate it, they should be in the mail to you in early October. I will be posting information on fall readings next week.
When I started to think about how to market Inheritance Of Aging Self I read every article and book I find about the topic. One suggestion that clicked was to contact your hometown newspaper. For me that was an Oh Snap moment because I had been a columnist for one of those newspapers way back when. Which led me to send an email to the current publisher of the Arizona Jewish News, Shannon Levitt, to let her know that 50 years later, one of their Teen Talk columnists was still writing and attached a press release about my book.
She promptly wrote back and asked if I’d like to do a guest column for the wait for it…senior section. Which in an I feel so old sort of way makes perfect sense, so I accepted her kind offer. Then I tried to remember something about my experience writing that column way back when which was when I realized that I had kept those columns. And there they were, the original newsprint versions, carefully saved in my file cabinet.
I had a lot of fun writing my guest column, weaving in the history with a bit about my book, which includes a number of poems, a number of which were inspired by events and people that were part of my Arizona landscape.
You can read my romp down memory lane here, and below in all it’s glory is a pic of me from my Teen Talk days.
