Choose Books for Xmas!

I love Alessandra Bava's blog post about choosing books for Xmas, especially indie books and poetry books by women writers!
And to make it even better, she names some presses I adore, including {dancing girl press & studio}Hyacinth Girl PressMisty Publications, and my own Blood Pudding Press (and more)!
And to make it even better times three (!!!) she recommends one of my own poetry chapbooks (Thirteen Designer Vaginas, published by Hyacinth Girl Press) AND two poetry chapbooks published by my Blood Pudding Press (Letters From Room 27 of the Grand Midway Hotel by Margaret Bashaar - and House on Fire by Susan Yount) as great holiday gifts!
In addition to Bava's wonderful recommendations, I would also like to recommend HER chapbook, published by Blood Pudding Press, "They Talk About Death" by Alessandra Bava - https://www.etsy.com/listing/195494626/new-they-talk-about-death-by-alessandra?ref=shop_home_feat_1

Happy Holidays from Thirteen Myna Birds!

Happy Holidays brimming with darkly delicious stuffing and broken wish bones from Thirteen Myna Birds!
At the top of the flock are all new offerings by Mitchell Krockmalnick Grabois, Mercedes Webb-Pullman, Dean Knight, Paul Tristram and Daniel Snethen. At the bottom of the flock older pieces still remain from Hannah E. Phinney and Joris Soeding.
"I am a horror film - even the letter O can be beaten - goons hit me with a digital night stick, sprayed my face with digital mace - become vicious - snapped off their noses and eyelashes - Her face breaks more - a massive crack in the middle of it - It looks like it is falling off - too tall for the front door - There’s too much in her face for me to wake up to - don’t know what rain is but I think it’s like crying."
