NEW ANNOUNCEMENT! THREE New Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbooks forthcoming in 2017!
I think all 8 of them deserve to be published, and I hope the ones I haven't chosen to publish through my Blood Pudding will find their homes soon.
I had meant to choose 1 or 2 to publish, but instead I chose 3, and those 3 are:
~Thirsty Bones by Sarah Lilius (to be published in late May/early June)
~Fuck Cancer Poems by Michael D. Grover (to be published in late August/early September)
~Paloma by Jennifer E. Hudgens (to be published in late November/early December)
The Finalists (in no particular order) are:
~Paper Doll, Heart of Ashes by Melissa Atkinson Mercer
~Prone As i Am by Bree
~After the Singularity by Devon Balwit
~Uncanny by Judy Hall
~Not Your Father's Nightmares by Scott Anton Morgan
Also, this month's Thirteen Myna Birds will be going live before the end of this month and will include a bunch of uniquely wonderful "runner-up" poems from some of the other great offerings I received for Blood Pudding Press consideration last month.
Also, some Finalist poems will appear on this Blood Pudding Press blog next month.
Thank you very much for considering Blood Pudding Press.

"Imagine: a shot in the skull, spending a last breath,
stirring birds into sudden circles of song
darkness growing white"
from the poem "Fear at the Imagined Loss Shakes a Moment then Squeezes"
Blood Pudding Press is featured at Entropy!
Listen to Meet The Presses!
Lorraine Cipriano starts the conversation and then each of the presses poets/editors reads some poems and talks about small press stuff, in the order of the presses named above.
For Blood Pudding Press, I talk a bit about small press stuff, read one of my own poems and read one poem from each of this year's Blood Pudding Press chapbooks - "Fiddle Is Flood" by Lauren Gordon, "Pigeons and Peace Doves" by Matthew J. Hall, and "Bone of My Bone" by Nicole Rollender.
