A few updates

A while back I had mentioned that I am working on two new books — a new poetry anthology, which I plan to publish in the summer, and also a collection of the ‘thoughts for the day,’ which I hoped to publish even sooner. I will still be publishing both books, but I have decided to focus on the anthology first and complete the book of sayings after. The tentative schedule for the two books now is to release the anthology late summer or early autumn, to be followed by the book of sayings by the end of the year. Although I haven’t been as swift as I hoped with preparing them for publication, I am pleased with how they are coming together… and I hope you will be too.

Also, I forget to mention it, but I have been doing some behind-the-scenes work on the Poetry Chaikhana. I recently updated the database software I use to manage the website along with the extensive library of poetry, biographies, and commentaries. You are not likely to notice any changes as a visitor to the site, but these updates to the software mean that I can avoid several technical issues and I am now in a good position to continue to manage the Poetry Chaikhana well into the future. Some of the humdrum details that only a nerd can appreciate, but they help me to keep the extensive Poetry Chaikhana resources available to everyone.

    Thanks! I appreciate your effort. On your anthology– is there a lot of work getting permissions for use of a poem in your anthology?

    Thanks.

    I have one I want to publish as well.

    Hi Timothy,

    Yes, getting the permissions is a big part of the early process with the anthology. I now have nearly all of the permissions and my focus is now turning to editing, expanding the commentaries, considering the order and flow of ideas moving from poem to poem…

    How about with your anthology? How are your permissions coming along?

    Ivan
