HUMP DAY two days late!

Hello everyone,

There is so much going on in the literary world that I thought I’d do my 10 notables list today:

1) Julie Innis’s book, Three Squares a Day with Occasional Torture is available from Foxhead Books. Also the talented Christopher Allen writes a stunning review at his fantastic blog, I must be off! Three Squares a Day with Occasional Torture by Julie Innis, a book review by Christopher Allen. And if that isn’t enough, head on over to THE HAPPY KILLJOY – More Thoughts on “Three Squares”.

2) Then, while you are visiting Foxhead Books, check out Sheldon Compton’s The Same Terrible Storm. Sheldon recently had a book launch with publisher Stephen Marlowe, and blogs about it here: The Book Launch and Baked Beans

3) Gill Hoffs new book Wild is out! This collection is sure to be amazing! And read what Marcus Speh says in his review: Wild by Gill Hoffs (Paperback)

4) While there, check out Vestal Aversion by Matt Potter (Paperback)!!! 31 stories in all, bound to make you double over with laughter! Matt is currently on a world tour and I can’t wait to meet him at the KGB event next Saturday, June 23.

5) It’s Gay Pride Month (JUNE) and so, here is a writer friend’s blog: Chicks & Dicks: Gay Pride, Fathers Day and a Gay Father and Son… by Rick R. Reed

6) Connotation Press puts out an amazing mid-June 2012 issue. Congratulations to the fine editors, writers, and Ken Robidoux, the man with extra-ordinary vision. | A Note From Meg Tuite, Fiction Editor

7) MaryAnne Kolton interviews Kathryn Harrison at Los Angeles Review of Books! And what a profound, and insightful job she does! Los Angeles Review of Books – I Want To Destroy Your Equilibrium

8) New Corey Zeller at a l i c e     b l u e!

Also, Poet Nicolette Wong’s magic words at Escape into Life Nicolette Wong | Escape Into Life

9) Recently while I attended the Truth & Beauty Poetry Conference, dear friend Rachel turned me on to poet Li Young-Lee and sent me this stunning archived reading:

Lannan Podcasts » Li-Young Lee, Reading, 29 March 2000 – Video

10) My sweet friend and publisher, Gloria Mindock, at Cervena Barva Press, published her latest Cervena Barva Press Newsletter. And if you don’t already have Gloria’s amazing latest book, Nothing Divine Here, then you must get it! Cervena Barva Press Poetry Homepage Gloria Mindock Editor

And that, my friends, is a wrap! Don’t forget you can get Flash Fiction Fridays at Amazon! Flash Fiction Fridays (9781105460937): Robert Vaughan: Books
