Cripple Poetics is now on sale. Direct from HfP to you: http://tinyurl.com/6y7n58.
In a turn of events that can be only described as odd, Amazon has decided to show us, a boutique, micro global publishing company, what we're made of (who knew?!). As they have decided not to sell Cripple Poetics (http://tinyurl.com/57jwjx) we've realized not only that we can sell directly to our readers, but that we can make more money doing it, too! Thanks Jeff Bezos. ( But Jeff already has a class-action lawsuit on his hands [http://antitrust.booklocker.com/] so we realize that he probably could care less that he has shown us the way.)
But wait you say! Jeff says he'll sell Cripple Poetics on Amazon. Yes, but only if we pay them to print the book. (if you are on the Cripple Poetics Amazon page,click on the link that says "I own the rights to this title and would like to make it available again through Amazon.") Again, thanks, Jeff. But no thanks. Still, we're thrilled you've shown us the way.
The way straight to you, our readers. In an elegant, cost-effective method that makes me happy every time I think about it. We realize that buying from us might not work for you. Consider your local independent bookstore (http://www.indiebound.org/) or last, but not least, you can buy all our books, including Cripple Poetics, at barnes and noble (http://www.bn.com).
We can't stop thinking about Cripple Poetics. The poems won't let go of us and we want to share them with you because they matter. Come be part of a global, boutique publishing revolution.
Jay Sennett, Publisher
