Kidnapped by Muses!

The poster that unleashed the muse.

My muses have kidnapped me! Please don’t send help.

Since I had my experience the other night with the Imaginary Foundation, I have been in high creative mode.

I have finished all my writing projects that were piling up, and somehow even had time to create a 18×24″ mixed media “doodle” for a story I’ve been working on. Like Kate Leone, I suddenly find myself on fire—excuse my dark humor.

As always, I have ten things creatively cooking at all times. Look for Bitter Suites to be released July 13. There is another poetry collection in the works, working title of Dada.

Altars and Oubliettes is still in the publishing line up and moving along nicely despite me trashing 75% of the poetry weeks before it was due to be released. I am in the process of putting together new poetry for it.

Thanks to Kyra Starr Author Services, much of my work is becoming available in audio formats. I will be sharing some of those very soon.

Now, back to my happy incarceration with creativity.

Slenderman—the doodle for a story that became a project on its own.
