New Feature: Plug Your Book Here

I'm pleased to announce that the comment thread attached to this post will remain open to those of you who want to plug your books or the books of a friend. Creative writers don't have a lot of opportunities to blurb about their efforts, so I thought I'd offer. This is a genuine offer, BUT...

There are some caveats:
  • No book reviews. Just the title, author, a short blurb, and link to where one can buy and/or see more information/review about the book.
  • You may use this thread only; blurbs in other comment sections will be deleted.
  • By posting your blurb, you do leave yourself open to comments about your work, and these comments cannot be deleted, at least on this thread--at least I haven't figured out how to do this.

I will be putting a permanent link on the side panel.

Best, Bugzita

I think "plug your book" is a bad idea. The poetry milieu is already rife with self-vaunting and backslapping. This will only encourage it.

Hmmm. g tod slone you publish your own poetry in the publication you edit.

And that is not "self-vaunting" inside the poetry milieu?

(Beware of anthologies/ publications/ mags/ online mags in which editor(s) own work appears.)

Can reading poetry still be fun without the poems being silly or comedic?

Can serious poetry still be inspiring without being depressing?

Find out.

Find Gary B. Fitzgerald

etc.

Opinions welcome

(and look for my two new collections coming this Summer)
