    A big welcome to Spring — although my allergies are killing me right now. And congrats on the release of your book! That is so exciting, and you must be thrilled. I hope it sells many, many copies!

    What’s a “chapbook”? Yeah, I could look it up on the internet, but that seems boring. (I mean “generic”).


    1. It is a small book. In this case a small book of haiku and free verse poetry. That is why I am selling it for the price of a single on itunes, that seems fair, I mean un-biased. : )

        Yes, completely. :-)

        I’ll have to see if my smartphone has a kindle app. I’ve never purchased an e-book before.

        I could see something like this being put out in super limited quantities as a handmade book with the help of someone like http://www.flickr.com/photos/thewinterentertainmentsclub/ Jill Wignall (England) Well.. I think it would be cool anyway.


      2. Thank you. I appreciate that. I am actually having a free giveaway starting tomorrow through March 30. That would be a great time to experiment with a new app. There are actually allot of free books available on the kindle. : )
