Awesome photo of our reading last night by Kurt (this was before a bunch of sweet folks came in & filled up the standing room in the back) #somuchfun

Last night’s reading was beautiful! We had an amazing turnout, big love to everyone that came out to support & share. I was moved by so many of the pieces shared by both the poets I planned the event with & by the poets who stood up & shared at open mic, just stunning. The gathering of so many top-shelf humans in one place, yeah, pretty frickin’ amazing, feeling wildly inspired today. Also, if you are looking to hold a reading in Philly & need a venue, hit up Rach at A Poet Art Gallery, really, I can’t say enough good about her & the space she’s created. So. Much. Love.

Yay for new books! :D Here’s what I got:
Pen and Ink (such an awesome idea. pretty drawings of tattoos with the stories behind them. i love it)
The Official Thug Kitchen Cookbook (the book on Goodreads, and an article about the authors and stuff because awesome)
The Body Electric (A limited edition! I got 221 of 250 and Beth signed it too! So it’s not a low number like I was hoping, but Sherlock lived in 221B, so it’s a cool number at least!)
My True Love Gave to Me (It’s got a matte finish and bright pink page edges and a gold ribbon and it’s just beautiful and I love it.)
I Eat Crow + Blue Collar at Best (I pre-ordered this guy after I either got an email or saw somewhere else that both authors were going to sign copies and since I have all of the physical books of poetry that Words Dance Publishing offers, I had to get this one too. Because all their stuff gives me major feels and I need it all. And I highly recommend everything they have published, and will publish in the future simply because reasons. And my name is on there erhmehgerd *hugs book* *dies*)

Ah! My book in such GREAT company! (Pen & Ink is actually in my Amazon cart as I type this!) Thank you so much for your kind words on the book & Words Dance Publishing. We appreciate your support so, so much, love, thank you. <3 bookwormdiaries:
