  1. From the review, it sounds like I’d like to give this book a try. I’m a bit stacked up, 7 or 8 poetry books, and several novels. Most are from blog pals, but I have a couple on deck at the library, as well.
    I just checked Amazon, Canada, and your book is out on the 21st. Why do they insist on charging almost double? The actual exchange rate is only 20% (approx) Another blog author’s book was OVER double the cost. Of course only Amazon knows the answer to this question.
