If shameless self promotion bothers you, Dear Reader, stop now.
This is the time of year when instructors, professors, and teachers of all stripes begin to plan what books they might teach for the next academic year. Given the timing, I have an offer for anyone out there in such a position.
If you adopt Blood Almanac for a class, I will gladly travel to your school, college, university, etc., for free if I can drive and you can provide a couch. If the distance means a flight and I can't afford it, I will gladly Skype with the class, exchange email questions and answers, do a conference call, or in some other way use technology to interact with your students.
One year ago, I was lucky enough to make this deal with Stephanie Kartalopoulos at the U of Missouri, and last fall I had a great time talking with her students. Details are here.
Should you be interested, please email me and I'll put an exam copy in the mail, if you don't already own a copy of the book.
Oh, and I have another interview up online, along with three poems this time. Check out Emprise Review 18. This is a wonderful online journal published out of Fayetteville, AR. If you like it, let them know!
Here ends the SSP for the time being.
Ten days and counting to OPENING DAY!! Woo Hoo!
