Except for one I’d like to keep, every copy of my December 2012 chapbook, Barry Merry Baloney, is gone and in good hands.  You may recall that Spare Change Press published this short thematic collection as part of its very limited edition Ten Leaves Poetry Series. I’m extremely grateful to Spare Change guru David B. McCoy for the care and work he put into my book.  He printed a total of 30 copies of BMB, of which I received 25.  I numbered and initialed my 25 prior to distribution.  I don’t know what he did with his 5.  I’m always happy when folk are interested in publishing, reading and (even sometimes) buying my work. But I must admit I was a little sad to see this chapbook go out of print so soon.

So, in case there are any more gluttons for my sort of pun-is-meant out there, Crisis Chronicles (with Mr. McCoy’s blessing) has just reprinted Barry Merry Baloney in ebook form — our first ever Kindle edition.  It now features added acknowledgments and a cover foto/collage by
Steven B. Smith.  BMB‘s ten semi-fictions explore the dark side of love, dissembling, lamb chops, death and god sex while pursuing a nearly elusive greater truth.  Click here to download it now.
