FALL UPDATE

Hi guys, I hope this update finds every body well this Halloween season. It’s been a while since I have updated this blog and I actually have several things to tell you, so let’s get to it!

I have one track on the Save The Children Compilation from the aquietroom net label. This comp is full of all sorts of ambient and drone goodness and I am proud to be a part. All proceeds go to the Save The Children organization to help provide aid to the women and children of Afghanistan.

Another compilation has just dropped from Hello America Stereo Cassettes, a cool project that puts out digital and cassette releases fusing music, noise, and literature of all types. My track “Analog Machines” (which dropped a few months back with Beir Bua) is featured on their fall collection comp.

Dreich is an excellent literary journal hailing from Scotland and I am proud to have several poems featured in season 3/Number 12. I am proud of this one as I am in excellent company,

Speaking of proud, I am excited to announce I have two poems online over at the always excellent Beir Bua Journal out of Ireland. Beir Bua is a space to watch for sure, as they are making moves and doing some interesting things, including launching a barrage of interesting titles with Beir Bua Press.

Which brings me to the biggest news, and I guess it’s okay to spill the proverbial beans here, my next book titled <Reboot> More So… Disconnected will be released March 2022 from Beir Bua Press! I’m super stoked to have my next book brought into the world from a press that is shaping up to be one of the premier experimental small presses! I would like to give a huge thanks to editor Michelle Moloney King for selecting my work to put out into the world.

I have also have booked my first reading of 2022 (and my first reading in years, actually). More news on that in the future!

Until next time, Happy Halloween!
