Melankholia, All of My Every Things, and Harvest Updates & Reveals

Last weekend the digital version of Melankholia released, but as planned the paperback edition released on October 5th, how exciting. Along with this wonderful news, I made a small announcement. The announcement was about All of My Every Things will have a second edition run with additional poetry and the long awaited paperback edition, but before the second edition will release and the website posts about that let’s take time to appreciate that a second poetry book has been released.

Melankholia

This book is now live in digital and in paperback formats. It is the first book of poetry that I’ve branded with the Edkar logo. To learn more about Edkar read Edkar Press where I explain more about this organization method I’m using, i.e. publishing house. I have previously mentioned Melankholia on the website read What is Melankholia?

Melankholia has some selected poetry from All of My Every Things included near the end, as well as poetry written from this year’s Napowrimo back in April 2020, and a lot of recent works I’ve polished up for publication. All of this beautiful hard work is introduced by Oliver Sheppard. An amazing poet in his own right and I recommend checking out his work. My favorite is Thirteen Nocturnes.


All of My Every Things

All of My Every Things was previously published last year. It was a simple digital release with plans of a paperback release to follow, but never sitting well with me, I quietly postponed it, but finally with some polishing and adding additional poetry the paperback is coming. I have gone in and updated the book.


Harvest

Harvest is coming out as a re-release November 24th, 2020 with the publisher Three Furies Press. This is just a reminder that it will mark the continuation of The Blasphemer Series with the book following Ghosts, coming out 2021 around August if everything stays on course.

Edkar Press

As you may have noticed, the website’s look has changed. A banner is on the front of the website that looks like this:

In the center is a logo for Edkar Press, but what is Edkar Press? In short, a teeny-tiny conception. Right now it’s still very much in its infancy. I will publish my poetry books and re-publishing more polished collections under this press. I never wanted to get into the other-side of publishing, the side of the publisher, but for now this is a rest stop.

The idea has crossed my mind as I connect with more and more poets that are struggling to find companies to publish with. Poetry is a hard sell and many don’t know how to self-publish. This may grow down the road, and it may be nothing more than it is right now.

The future holds possibilities and I have a lot of ideas I want to do and this may or may not be the label that goes on them. We will just have to see.
