Love Is a UFO

Love Is a UFO, my eighth chapbook, has been published. I received a carton with 40 copies from Pudding House, the publisher, over the weekend. I'm not fond of the cover art, about which I had no input, but the chapbook itself is firmly bound and printed on good paper. I'm skeptical it's going to receive much attention. The publisher does no marketing. Selling it is my obligation. And I thought writing it was tough.

You know I'll buy a copy. Man, you are a chapbook-writing machine!

Yes, Howie Good is the chapbook king, lol. Well, I bought one and I know I few others did, so at least that is a few sold. I also agree that the cover art, while not bad, is a little odd. Oh well, isn't the old saying "Don't judge a book by its cover."
