Sister, Blood and Bone by Paula Cary - NEW from Blood Pudding Press

The NEW Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, Sister, Blood and Bone by Paula Cary is now available –


Blood Pudding Press is very pleased to announce its third new poetry chapbook of 2013, “Sister, Blood and Bone” by Paula Cary, with cover art created from the doll photo, “Steampunk Dia De Los Muertos Doll 353” by Michael Brown/ UC Studios.

Paula Cary’s ten poems within this swimming diving and skull collecting offering were inspired by her sister Lisa Cary, her muse. The poems offer small bursts of life and death and blood based connections.  Blood and bones collected from under water and saved for memories and keep sakes and art sakes.

Each chapbook is hand-bound with colorful threads pricked into colorful covers.  If you would like a specific color cover, feel free to specify in the comments section when you purchase – either light gray with circles OR medium gray OR variations of tan (or Blood Pudding Press will choose for you and surprise you.)  Also if you would like a certain color of binding thread, feel free to specify that – either soft/light/dark blue water OR multicolored bright blue/green OR multicolored bright RAINBOW flying mermaid legs.


“You are bloodless white
From the frigid depths
Your lips a literal blue
They match your eyes
And I think of sugar skulls
Dressed in colored frosting”

(from Paula Cary’s poem “After the Dive in Troy Springs”)
