It’s here! The new collection has arrived. Poems written over a ten year period–attending to the premature deaths of my parents, the births of my two children, and the sudden end of my marriage. The book is titled Believing is not the same as Being Saved, after a poem of the same title, which won The Malahat Review‘s 2013 Open Season Award for Poetry. You can read a bit about that poem here.
The book will be making its way into bookstores in the next couple of weeks, and is available for preorder online now. If you order the collection from your local independent bookstore, it never hurts to suggest that they order a few extras for their shelves. I know Audreys Books in Edmonton has copies on the way, and if you are eager enough you can put a copy on hold and they will contact you when it arrives!
