Happy Birthday, Mr. Poe!
To one of the first, authentically American literary voices. Inspiration, then and now, for artists, writers, creators.
Maybe I should have dedicated my book to him – posthumously – that is.
But I think it is some sort of fancy coincidence, fate, luck, whatever you want to call it – that my book, West End, has been released on this, his 207th Birthday.
West End has been “officially” released. I’m told it won’t be in bookstores – online or in person – for 3-5 days. OH THE WAITING IS THE HARDEST PART (yes, I think Tom Petty liked Poe too!)
