Cancellation and Review Copies of Poetry

So there’s good and bad news. The bad news is that I’ve decided not to publish the last of my haiku books, Medical Heaven, individually. I honestly have no drive to do this, despite the fact that the previous ones got a surprisingly large number of downloads and views. I’ll still finish the original cover art, but it’ll just be a singular painting.

The good news, however, is that come late July-early August, I’ll be giving away review copies of two poetry collections of mine – Absolute Heaven and Loverboy. The first is an experimental (and massive) compilation including all 10 haiku books and 30+ traditional poems, and Loverboy is a standard collection of “romantic-grotesque” poems. I recommend both for older teens and adults due to dark and sensitive content – including topics of violence, trauma and mental illness. There is little-to-no explicit language, however.

They are early copies and may be missing some material, especially as several poems out of Loverboy may appear in other publications before it comes out. It won’t be anything that effects the book as a whole.

I’m not positive on the final publication date of either – I’m aiming for late 2018 at the earliest, but if you’re a reviewer interested in a free book, now is your chance to sign up for one. There are still about 40 or so copies left. Just let me know, either on Goodreads or in the comments. 🙂
