    First book

    My first book will be published later this year by Transcendent Zero Press. It's a collection of poetry and short fiction that tells a single story.

    Many of you helped me with critiques, beta reading, advice on the query letter and even the contract. I feel so lucky to have found this community. Thank you so, so much.
