To Look Out From

My first poetry collection is coming out April 11, 2017! “In To Look Out From, Dede Cummings takes good advantage of the imaginative fluidity that poetry offers.

Advance Review: Will Poole’s Island

I am representing Vermont author, Tim Weed, for his publicity book launch campaign for his stunning debut novel, a YA historical fiction which is set on the island of Nantucket. Tim will be appearing at the Nantucket Book Festival on Saturday June 21st, where he will be under the authors’ tent signing books most of the day. Here is a first review of his book:

Tim Weed

WPI Hi-Res Cover ArtRon Samul of the New London Patch has written a thoughtful advance review of Will Poole’s Island. Here’s an excerpt:

Will Poole’s Island is more than a coming of age story . . . the reader is left with a longing to find that place, that moment when everything is right and the everything is possible. It is a longing we all search for spiritually, geographically, and emotionally. This book proves that oppression, obstacles, fate, and the world we live in should not stop us from seeking that place. If we can’t find it right now, walk in the shoes of Will Poole and rediscover that lost island in your life. It will inspire you.”

Background
In mid-2012 Julia Ferrari became the sole proprietor of the Golgonooza Letter Foundry and Press after 30 years of partnership with her husband, Daniel Carr. The premature death of Carr two years ago deprived Julia of both her life partner and her business partner, a double loss from which she is now beginning to emerge with renewed purpose. It has not been easy but she is determined to continue the press, or some incarnation of it, on her own.

Julia is not alone in her situation, in fact she is…
