I've finally managed to cobble together over a hundred pages of poems. So I've decided to release them in a single collection. The book is available from booksellers online and from the publisher, ManaSoft Books directly, at http://manasoftbooks.com/pimp.php.
The title of the collection is Paraphernalia in My Pocket. Since that's also the name of this blog, I need to change the blog's name to avoid confusion. I suppose it would've been easier to give the poetry collection a different name, but the title was always reserved for my poetry going back to my college days and the first collection I turned in to my poetry professor. Then, I had about ten poems. Now I have more like 70 or 80 poems.
So you might be wondering why I named the blog with the title of my poetry collection. Well, at the time, back in 2010 when I started this blog, I wasn't sure I'd ever release a collection of poetry. I didn't have as many poems then. And frankly blog posts are like poems: they are little bits of ideas that float around in my head. It seems fine at the time.
But times change and now I need a new name. So if any of my readers want to suggest a title, I'll send you a free audio version of my novel, Aure the Topaz. Send your suggestions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep writing everyone.
