The bios are up and tickets available for Pulp Diction/Pulp Sampler in Portland Oregon.  It will be in January of next year and I hope to make the trip.  Looks like a cool theatre.  Linkage below.

I am part  of LinkedIn, although I wasn't sure why.  Today I was sent an email to join a LinkedIn group called book authors and agents.  You have to request to join.  So that's what I did and then I brushed up my profile to include the book publication here at Punkin House Press, my poety journal publications, play that will be on stage for Pulp Diction next January and I forgot to add my pending children's book.  Probably won't go anywhere, but it's a nice idea and you never know.

Kid's book

I have a children's book that I am trying to find a published for.  It's called Alphabet Haiku.  The book has a haiku for every letter of the alphabet and an illustration.  The illustrations are done by my friend and political cartoonist Mike Garman.  His political cartoonist style makes for some unique and interesting interpretation.  I think they are great. 

We printed up a packet of 40 booklets sample and are starting to send them out.  It's a crowded market because I think that almost every parent that reads a children's book says to themselves, "I could do this."  But I think we have something different and hopefully it will stand out.

I think I like writing groups.  Its always great to be around people that are interested in the same things that you are.  I'm in a couple groups right now that I recently joined.  One meets at this nice coffee shop that is near me in an area I really like. Liked the group, but they do group writing projects for the purpose of developing writing skills.  I'm all for it, except I only have time to write for myself at this point in my life so I don't want to spend any time working on things that I'm not trying to publish or a specific goal for me.

The other group just started and they are a theatre writing group so exactly what I want.  They have only met once and still decidind upon a place and time to meet.  I offered the above place.  That would be a great start.
