Update on Poetry Books: EAST OF OMAHA and TIDAL AIR

I have been informed that Pecan Grove Press, which has published two of my poetry books (East of Omaha and Tidal Air), has updated its authors’ web pages and now includes a shopping cart feature that enables easier selection of volumes for purchasing. Readers interested in obtaining copies of these books are invited to visit the web page for my publications at Pecan Grove Press. I also urge everyone to take advantage of the provided links to check the PGP main page and browse the assorted pages displaying the press’s various other poets for information about the many fine books published by Pecan Grove Press under the wise guidance of its editor, Palmer Hall.

I don't read as much poetry as I used to, but I'm always a fan of the written word. The title of your book, East of Omaha, caught my eye. I'm the Head of Content for Omaha.net, a community website for the city of Omaha. We're always on the lookout for Omaha authors we can support, which it appears, sadly, that you are not. However, does the book have any roots in Omaha? Any connection to the city? Where does the title arise from?

By the way, great blurb from Ashbery. Poetics is an insular world, but the old man's name still jumps from the page. Best, Jordy.

Much to my chagrin, I found out that the links to PayPal for Tidal Air and East of Omaha didn't work. I managed to find the problem and believe it is now repaired.

My best and my apologies for the problem over the weekend.
