Through Immortal Shadows Singing

So, some time ago I wrote an epic poem.

No, I mean a really epic poem. The saga of Helen of Troy, in her voice and song, in 29,000 words, more or less. (What the business calls "novella" length, or "short novel.") With more left over that might pop into a companion volume later or into separate poems here and there; haven't decided. Once it was over, I looked at it and thought, what on earth am I going to do with this?

And now that the contracts are mostly signed, oh readers, I can tell you:

Papaveria Press will be publishing my experimental novella-in-poetry, Through Immortal Shadows Singing, some point in early summer of next year.

If for some reason you don't know Papaveria, they publish absolutely stunning books of myth and poetry and song, and I am so pleased to be a small part of this. I'll have far more to say once we reach the end of spring.

....and now I go collapse. Stunningly long day already.
