Get your copy here! Got it Covered June 14, My second book officially has a cover! The final countdown approaches: I can't wait to tell you more of what's in store this fall!
I'm so excited to dedicate a long weekend to my next manuscript, and as the retreat approaches, I'm selling chapbooks to help defray the cost of travel.
If you want a taste of what's in store, the title of the chapbook comes from "everybody knows that I'm a mess," originally published in The Journal.
It's about fearing food and hiding in work and learning to cook and the root of migraines and interrupted grief and abandoning painting and who ignores our needs in service of their own and who sees us when we don't want to be seen.
So many people have already reached out to say they see themselves in it, which is the greatest compliment for something that was so scary to draft, let alone put out into the world.

I also want to thank everyone who's reached out via Twitter, Facebook, and the contact form on my website with kind words, as well as their own stories of unresolved publisher abuses.
Contracts only protect us if we're able to enforce their terms.
When enforcement is cost-prohibitive or otherwise impossible, our only recourse is to tell our stories publicly. The more we make space to talk about these kinds of things, the better off we'll be as a community. You can read the piece here. I'm looking forward to publishing far more nonfiction this year and hope you'll be reading along.
Gathered here are all the stragglers that didn't make in into any link round-up of my published work this year. Thank you, as always, for reading along.
