It’s a thrill to announce more new titles in our Editor’s Series. As you know, we’re about to release In the Outlaw’s House by Christina Pacosz and Arrow by Bruce Bond this month as the 9th and 10th title in Volume 3 of the series. These will be followed by #11, Trevor Ketner’s Negative of a Photo of Fire and #12, Diane Scholl’s Salt, both due out in March. Also in March, we’ll launch Volume 4 with Christopher Nelson’s Love Song to the New World. Then, in June (drumroll, please?), we’ll publish Edison Dupree’s Boy with a Ball and Rogan Kelly’s Demolition in the Tropics.
Why not grab all seven titles with a special Spring Bundle offer? From now through March 15, we’re offering all seven chapbooks, shipping included, for $50. (Chapbooks will be shipped upon date of publication, so your bundle will arrive in installments; please check the Seven Kitchens Press website for publication updates.)
Please celebrate with us the release of Patrick Ryan Frank’s new chapbook, Come Panic, as the newest title in our Editor’s Series. This manuscript, a finalist for the Rane Arroyo Series, examines Andrew Cunanan: his life, his psyche, his status as a frightening-yet-captivating figure, and his murder spree. It’s an amazing collection. Order yours here.
The first of two new chapbooks we’re bringing out this month is Boyer Rickel’s Musick’s Hand-Maid, a crown of elegiac sonnets, as Number 6 in Volume 3 of our Editor’s Series. Boyer’s also just released a new title, Tempo Rubato, in the Green Linden Chapbook Series (read more here); his earlier chapbook, reliquary, is still available from Seven Kitchens here.
JeFF Stumpo is a brilliant poet, and we’re thrilled to release his newest chapbook, Against Itself Cannot Stand, as number 5 in the third volume of our Editor’s Series. Follow this link to read a sample poem and order your copy!
Just wanted to share the word about three titles we’ll be bringing out this winter: Musick’s Hand-maid, a sonnet crown/ elegy by Boyer Rickel; Dear Red Airplane, a reprint of Robin Reagler’s 2011 Summer Kitchen title, forthcoming as #8 in our ReBound Series; and Nothing Nice, by Jim Elledge, originally published in 1987 by Windfall Prophets Press and forthcoming as #9 in our ReBound Series. Our thanks to Laura Mullen and David Groff for nominating Robin’s and Jim’s chapbooks.
And thank you to everyone who has kindly supported Seven Kitchens over these past ten years. It’s a journey I could barely have imagined possible when we started out with our first title back in 2007.
August is a mad busy month here at Seven Kitchens. Right in the middle of the hot, hot Summer Kitchen Series, we’re releasing our 89th (!) chapbook: Diane LeBlanc’s This Space for Message, with a gorgeous blue cover by Guillermo Castro. We do love blue, and we love Diane’s new collection and think you will, too.
