Crisis Chronicles Press has published 11 fantastic titles so far this year. That makes 71 in all since I started this thing back on 8 July 2008. We plan to publish at least 13 more by the end of 2015 and reach 100 titles in print by next summer. To celebrate our 7-year anniversary (and raise funds for upcoming publications) we are offering a special deal for the next 7 days only: send us $71 to receive (postage free) all 11 titles we've published between January and June 2015 (links to each in the comments below) - plus an added bonus book. That's a $95 value (more if you had to pay postage). Any takers?

Much love to my brother +Cavana Faithwalker.  
 
Just pumping up Crisis Chronicles while +John Burroughs takes a bit of a hiatus from appearances.  A vital poetry voice and proponent in NEO.
Dang I remember when John first came to Cleveland and read at the Nia Coffeehouse, I believe we (along with  partner Vince Robinson and the Jazz Poets) were at the Coventry library in those days. it was kindred spirit from the get go.

Dog Gone Hungry
We moved the spider plant out of Leda's range. So now she's eating my patchouli.
