update: 'BONE-BODICED' is now sold out!


I am tickled to announce a new offering—a special collaboration between two different writers and two different small presses--BONE-BODICED by Juliet Cook & Rachel Kendall—published by Blood Pudding Press and ISMs Press.

This chapbook includes a series of six of Cook’s poems called ‘The Shrine Sequence’ interspersed with six of Kendall’s deliciously dark morsels of flash fiction. The collection’s thematic flirtations include alteration, mutilation, transfixiation, entrapment, & the peculiar claustrophobia of being trapped within a decorative box or an ornate cage. The collection’s tone is horrific, obsessive, and perversely titillating. Get sucked in if you dare.

This is a very limited edition project of which only twenty copies will be made available for sale—ten copies through Blood Pudding Press (Cook’s small press based in the USA) & ten copies through ISMs Press (Kendall’s small press based in the UK). The contents of all twenty copies will be the same, but the format and design of each press’s version will slightly and mysteriously vary.

The Blood Pudding Press version’s innards will be pinioned into place with black ribbon betwixt pale coverstock with ivory deckled edges peeking out and other odd adornments.

This and other Blood Pudding Press offerings are available in the Blood Pudding Press online shop at http://www.bloodpuddingpress.etsy.com/.

For more information about the U.K. incarnation, please email seinundwerden@gmail.com.


Blood Pudding Press is currently in the midst of a special promotion in which every chapbook order is accompanied by a free surgical glove so that you may handle the innards with care or dissect them or perform other questionable ministrations upon them. While supplies last.


Following this project, Blood Pudding Press will be taking a small respite from publishing for the next few months, as I focus upon some other creative projects including participation in the dusie kollektiv 3.

You may look forward to some special announcements this fall about a dusie/Blood Pudding Press collaborative chapbook, a call for submissions for the third Blood Pudding Press multi-writer chapbook, and more.
