I’m raising $250 to publish my first book of poetry. It will be titled Music and Marrow. I don’t want to give away much more than that.
I just think it’s about goddamn time I published something
I put a give button at the bottom of my page.
Please help an artist out. Like. Reblog. Donate

I am extra pleased because it consists of writings from the last year except for the titular poem, which I wrote in 2007 the day after Kurt Vonnegut died.
This chapbook comes with a download code for my digital album Sweet Nuggets. Soooo…
I present the Uncle Robot Summer Pack for $20
and it comes with:
Or you can choose the chapbook/album only from the drop-down menu. Only $10.
NOTE: Be sure to visit my albums to denote which one you want a code for! CLICK HERE TO PERUSE MY AUDIO.
AND! Be sure to designate who I’ll sign the book for, or email me with instructions after you’ve ordered or send me your number and we’ll talk it over some coffee/tea.
