I'm Not a Robot
by Howie Good
Release Date July 17th, 2018
"Overuse over time means that our current Reality has worn thin; but Howie Good has come to the rescue & provided a sturdy under-blanket to create a safe viewing platform. His new Reality spills through the holes in the old so sometimes we see the familiar, sometimes not. But the juxtaposition of old & new means that we do have reference points to hang on to, that we do have time to prepare for the craziness he thinks might be ahead if not already here. I'm not sure if I want to face this new Reality, but Howie Good has done such a great job identifying it in I'm Not a Robot that I'm sure I'll be comfortable dealing with it when it confronts me."

How Much Of What Falls Will Be Left When It Gets To The Ground?
by Carolyn Guinzio
Release Date September 25th, 2018
Carolyn Guinzio’s How Much of What Falls Will Be Left When It Gets To The Ground? interlaces a series of questions, possibilities, and scenarios that address the various “times and places” of memory—how it is stored, lost, reinvented, mythicized, and how a person is shaped and reshaped by this process, like a piece of clay forever spinning under the shaking potter’s hands. But through the play she makes of words, images, and places, Guinzio reminds us that despite what turns out by the end, there is beauty in both the process and the result.

Nobody Is Ever Missing by Cody Wilson
Release Date May 15th, 2018
"Cody Wilson has a great feel for the details that speak of what hides below the surface. There’s a deeply human mix here – he celebrates, worries, remembers, and looks ahead – and a feeling that he’s trying to enact the multitude of woundings and survivals that have shaped who he is. This book is a beautiful reminder of the joy and risk surrounding us every day."

by Jennifer Battisti
Release Date April 1st, 2018
Often set in the less-glamorous corners and lesser-known outskirts of iconic Las Vegas, the poetry in Jennifer Battisti’s Echo Bay defines an honest reality of motherhood and daughterhood contrasting their predefined definitions. Obliterating the saccharine, and with acute descriptions and sharp language, each piece blends natural order with one’s own sentience until objectivity evaporates and all that is left is emotion. In Battisti’s debut chapbook, music from the late twentieth century plays in the background, desert heat radiates from the pages, and at any given moment an off-duty Elvis waits for his flight.

The Lost Girls Book of Divination
by Letisia Cruz
Release Date April 1st, 2018
"The Lost Girls Book of Divination is a stunningly cool graphic poem, aka a lyrical narrative accompanied by captivating imagery, far superior to anything Instagram has to offer! It is a spiritual quest, both ancient and postmodern in its insights, a poetic tarot for the new millennium. It is seasonal, cyclical, and maddeningly like our own lives, resonant with our struggles, offering up the ultimate wisdom—that being alive means being lost. Lastly, it is a powerful statement on the earth and our loss of connectedness to it—for as we unspool from ourselves, forests vanish."
-Rosemarie Dombrowski, Poet Laureate of Phoenix, AZ
