  1. First and foremost, I’d like to congratulate you on making a book and making it happen. 🙂

    I’m so proud of you Jason.

    I have a curious question. Who published your book? Is it poetry? I would very much like a copy, expect for one problem? I don’t have a credit-card. 😦 I have cash on me but no credit-card. 😦

    Another question: Did you edit your own work? or do they edited for you? just curious.

    1. Thanks, homie. This particular book is from Eyewash Press. Unfortunately, it’s only going to be available for the Open Studios event – literally, 50 copies and when they’re gone, they’re gone! I’ve worked with editors in some instances and no editors (self-edited) in others. Depends on the press. If you’re lucky, you get hooked up with a good editor.

      1. Eyewash Press. I have been eyeing them for some time since you’ve introduce me to them. Jason, something just came to me that I must share with you. Soon, I’ll be releasing my 3rd and last Chapbook. The reason why, I want to actually make my first book of poetry. Yes, I want to make this happen. I’ve had some insecurities over my writings. By insecurities I mean…their have been editors who we’re trying to re-edit my whole entire work. I told them that I myself am an editor and I edit my whole entire works. There we’re disagreements from both sides. So I left. The only people I trust with touching or editing my work is my friend Don Campbell and myself. I do take in suggests from him and he’s a big help. So, I guess coming back to what I was saying about editing. Say, If I we’re to submit my work to Eyewash Press. Would they edit my writing? Or Let me be the editor of my own writing?

        Just curious.

        1. In that situation, I’d self-publish, man. SUPER-easy to do it and I would be happy to work with you through the process. then you have complete control with respect to edits, distribution, marketing…

              1. Hmmm??? Okay, what would you say, if you and I work together and get some back and forth development?

                Be honest, do you think my work turned into a book would sell?

                I was even thinking of going to lulu.com or createspace and just self-publish myself and edit my whole poem so I can sell it. Again I was just pondering.

                1. That is what I would do in your situation (lulu/createspace,etc.). You have a very specific vision and it would be very simple for you to handle everything yourself. it’s work – but not at all difficult work. honestly, i think that if today you made a post that said “i have a book for sale and here is where to buy it”, you would sell 50 copies that day. from there, sales will slow – not because the work is bad – but because poetry just doesn’t sell. BUT THAT IS OK. why? you’re making books and getting them into the world. then you have something to do readings around. i would buy multiple copies of your book and give them to my friends, i like your stuff that much. so, take that for what it’s worth but you can do this and do it well.
