Indie Writers, Bragging Rights, Tuck Magazine and Blurbs

Within the past two months, Tuck Magazine and more specifically, yours truly has been quoted in the blurbs of two volumes of poetry. Certainly I am flattered down to my bones with this honour, but more than this I feel as if my work with Tuck has mattered, in-so-far as the promotion of independent writers is concerned. When you toil alone it is so difficult to keep your focus unwavering and your self believe intact. The indie writer is a one person literary machine: creator, publisher, marketer, accountant and publicist. Clearly, anyone who is so passionate about the words is indeed a special breed of writer and deserves more than a nudge up the hill toward recognition and sales, therefore, I shall commence nudging:

Cat Catalyst was my interview for the June issue of Tuck, which you can read HERE

She has just released a book called “Emolution” that is much more than a good summer read,it is a spiritual and intellectual trek with an inspiring and insightful thinker/artist.

You can visit her shop window HERE to purchase a copy and to support a phenomenal indie writer.

Guy Traiber is a philosopher and seeker of truth found in humble an unconventional places. He also happens to be one of the best poets to be found online. I have been pestering him forever to write a book and lo and behold, he has finally taken the indie leap, with an unusual but very clever book: “The Pocket Zen Book of Irrelevant Answers.” I won’t go into the content but  I will be reviewing it soon for Tuck, so keep your eyes peeled. Until then, you can purchase a brand spanking new copy HERE to add to your summer mind/soul expansion reading list.
