Hello all who follow this blog!
I still have yet to receive my ten copies of
“Wannabe Hoochie Mama Gallery of Realities’ Red Dress Code” so I cannot yet post any pictures of me in possession of my book.
and here the video poem I made that is source of the title of the collection, my 11th book:
So I still await that, and though “Wannabe’s “jacket professes this:
“This career-spanning volume by Thylias Moss, one of America’s most revered literary innovators, conveys the dazzling spectrum of her hypnotic poetic output, written over the past thirty-five years and including selections from each previous book as well as previously unpublished new poems.”
This collection of New & Selected Poetry DOES NOT contain selections from all of my published collections of poetry, “Small Congregations” , a previous “New & Selected” colection is NOT represented in “Wannabe”, so not “each” previous book, but “many” previous books, “some” previous books, or “most” previous books, but not:”each” for that is a lie.
I remind you how important it is to tell the truth.
“Wannabe” will be my final book publication wth Persea, so if any of you publishers out there, or f you know of a publisher who might be interested in my poetry, and would like to represent my work, please contact me, leave a message on this post or look me up through various means.
Let’s just say that after 25 years with Persea, it has become necessary, for various reasons, to part company.
**Please read any contracts carefully! –I didn’t and you wouldn’t believe what happened to me, because I failed to be vigilant and observant in the past, but I have learned my lesson.
For my poetry, I seek a publisher for my subsequent books.
