IT'S HERE! IT'S FINALLY HERE!

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 11, 2014, 8:00 AM
FROM THE DESK OF E. KRISTIN ANDERSON:

Breaking news! Those of you who pre-ordered A JAB OF DEEP URGENY are receiving your copies in the mail. AND I AM SO EXCITED! This chapbook, like every chapbook, I think, was a labor of love. Perhaps unlike other chapbooks, it exists because of a community of writers that encouraged me to take on a cool found poetry project. And now there's a book. And it's really pretty! Check out this picture of fellow Finishing Line poet LaToya Jordan's wee daughter holding A JAB OF DEEP URGENCY:

Check out those cutie future-poet hands!

If you haven't yet ordered a copy, you can do so from my publisher, Finishing Line Press.  If you're local to Texas, I have two upcoming readings and I would love to meet you and read poems to you and sign books for you!

On Saturday, November 15, I'll be at Malvern Books in Austin, TX. I'll be reading at 7pm with fellow Austin writer Tatiana Ryckman. There will be snacks and drinks and lots of wonderful words!

On Saturday, November 22, I'll be at The Book Spot in Round Rock, TX. This will be a celebration of both A JAB OF DEEP URGENCY and my book that came out in June, A GUIDE FOR THE PRACTICAL ABDUCTEE. I'll be reading from both books and signing and answering questions about found poetry and bumps in the night. Make sure you show up if you'd like to get a mini found poetry kit, which I am joyfully putting together right now!

Finishing Line Press, October 2014.
Finishing Line Press, October 2014.

Come hang out! I can't wait to see y'all!

Very soon reading guides will be available for both books. I'll have them on my website for educators to download, and I will also have pretty, printed versions at events. Including the above-mentioned events! Thanks to Colleen Conrad of Kealing Middle School for writing these!

And thank you to everyone has encouraged and supported me as a poet and as a writer. Especially my family, the folks at Found Poetry Review, Team Red Bird and Team Finishing Line as well as all my pals here in the Austin Writing Community and my online community at CRLiterature on deviantART.com.

IT'S HERE! IT'S HERE! IT'S HERE! I'm going to go roll around in some poems now. YAY!

Journal History

PinkyMcCoversong
E. Kristin Anderson
Artist | Professional | Literature
United States
My name is Emily, but if you're looking for my published work, you should Google E. Kristin Anderson. (Ask me and I'll tell you the why-I-need-a-pen-name story.) I write poetry (for everyone) and fiction (for young adults and children) and nonfiction (sometimes). I'm the co-editor of the nonfiction anthology DEAR TEEN ME (Zest Books, 2012) based on the website DearTeenMe.com, where authors write letters to their teen selves. I have two poetry chapbooks coming out this year: A JAB OF DEEP URGENCY (Finishing Line Press) and A GUIDE FOR THE PRACTICAL ABDUCTEE (Red Bird Chapbooks). I'm an online editor at Hunger Mountain and a contributing editor at Found Poetry Review . I blog at EKristinAnderson.com about books and writing and my bizarro life here in Austin, TX. If you're looking for editorial or mentoring servies, I'm a member of Yellow Bird Editors, a group of industry professionals offering these and other services for professionals as well as beginning writers and teens.

I grew up in Westbrook, Maine and went to Connecticut College in the beautiful New London, CT, and have a fancy-sounding degree in Classics. Once upon a time I lived in Brooklyn and worked at The New Yorker magazine and sometimes I have dreams that I have to go into the office and make the magazine and can't remember how. ATX, though? It's a great home. I can often be found at Texas DevMeets trying to be louder than StJoan and failing. Sometimes I sew my own clothes and make things with my hands, but I use too many shortcuts to be a pro. And I like to take photographs with toy and vintage cameras. Don't listen to anyone who says watching television will rot your brain -- some of my best ideas have come from TV.

Scroll down for a list of upcoming events and information on my editorial and coaching services.

Hello.  My name is Meriah and I am seeking information on literary agents that will take on new writers for science fiction.  I have published my book Eden Symbiotic on Amazon.com and I am very unhappy with the results.  I have written more agents than I can count, using a form query letter that I learned how to do from one of my how to books.  They all turned me down with the basic message, this is not for us.  You are welcome to check out my book both on Amazon.com and in my gallery in rough draft form in the folder marked Eden Symbiotic.  Your friend SilverInkBlot directed me to you when I asked if he/she knew of any good agents that might be of help to me.  Please help.  I really could use the sales and it would be a blast to see my novel in the book stands.

If you want to send me a private note I might be able to send you some information. But if right now you're getting the same message over and over, it might be time to move on to the next project, or to revise!

I believe in my book, no matter what the  agents say.  I am good.  I think part of my problem is there are no vampires in  my story.  Right now that is the fad ever since Twilight came out.  Good series, but not to helpful to me as far as publishing.  Maybe if you check out my book you can maybe see the problem.  Ignore the spelling mistakes, I fixed them in the  original manuscript and deliberately left them in my postings in my gallery so hopefully people that read my book here will be willing to buy the refined version.  What can a say?  I am a lousy sales person.  I just make good product and give excellent customer service.  I just need help getting my book noticed so I can sell thousands of copies.  More than once I have been told that my book will make a good movie.  My email address is MeriahSmith@comcast.net if you want to write me there.  I would be happy to have any help you can give me.  Thanks. :D

Vampires are actually no longer a trend. You'd be hard pressed to sell a vampire novel right now!

I don't have time right now to read others work outside of my critique partners and private clients. If you'd like to continue this conversation, feel free to contact me privately.
