Beautiful Cover Art by Diane Christiansen

Earlier this year my poetry manuscript Bite and Blood was selected by Finishing Line Press to be published this fall. The limited edition chapbook is handmade by this small press in Kentucky, and includes poems inspired by relationships between people and the natural environment and history of where I live in Lake Tahoe, California. Diane Christiansen donated the art for this startling and provocative cover:

I encourage you to buy the book during the advance purchase period that ends September 5th. Buying during the advance purchase period not only saves money, but helps the publisher determine the chapbook's press run. The official release date is October 18th.

The purchase price is $14.00 and shipping is $2.99. To order by Credit Card or PayPal visit https://finishinglinepress.com/index.php?cPath=2&sort=2a&filter_id=1755
 If you prefer to order by check or money order (payable to Finishing Line Press), print up this post and send it with your payment to: Finishing Line Press, PO Box 1626, Georgetown, KY 40324.

Please share this news with any family or friends who are poetry fans. A book party/reading will be planned this fall, so stay tuned! Thanks for your time, and I hope you will consider buying my book. :)

Happy reading!
Karen Terrey
