What bees and babes is this place luring?
(from Gretel and the Witch)
I have my very own copy of The Ravenous Audience now, and I’m so glad to hold it in my hands. I had the great fortune to see this book along its way to book-ness. This is not a shy book, and it is not for the timid reader. Kate tackles a lot, and she is unafraid in her words. There are delicate moments, but there are raw moments too. It’s a great collection, and I just wish that I was in Southern California to hear her read from its pages. I guess I’ll just have to try to tempt Kate back to Seattle for a visit and a reading…
Messages started to come in today- although I don’t have my copies yet, my book is out in the world!
Thank you to everyone who helped me along the way, both with editing and suggestions, and with support and the last ditch efforts to hit the required pre-publication sales. I couldn’t have made this without you.
I seem to be suspending a lot lately. I can’t help but love the delicate threads suspending a bit of postcard within a larger postcard/watercolor. I don’t know if they will survive the mail, but of course I’ll try. The threads may be caught, the paper torn, the colors bleed… but what is the point of holding onto the spaces myself?
