old stone: haiku, senryu & haibun is available now!
You can order a copy via paypal through my wonderful publisher, Ginninderra Press, or by contacting me directly for $20 posted (mountain0ash[at]gmail[dot]com).
Reflecting a moment, this one feels different because it’s a continuation of some of the travel themes I explored in my last collection, between giants, only in newer forms. Over the last few years, if you’ve been following the blog, you’ll have noticed that haiku, senryu and haibun have often made appearances here. What has attracted me to them as a writer is the different structures and the fight for each verse to not become overburdened – it’s an amazing challenge and I hope the results are satisfying to read!
In fact, if you’d like to sample the contents, you can read a few pieces on the book’s page and in a post mentioned below. There’s a Goodreads Giveaway closing soon – but for those of you not on Goodreads I thought I’d run a little comp right here on the blog.
It’s a little bit of a mix and match game – if you’re interested in winning a copy of old stone, all you have to do is leave your answer in the comments on the Old Stone Mix&Match post!
(Stay tuned for a late December online launch with music and performance too)
