Handwriting: A goal of 2014

I do not enjoy my handwriting. Over the last few month, I have found a new hobby of collecting fountain pens. I figured I would take this opportunity to work on my script. I am hoping to keep up with it through the year.

My Heart Belongs to Buffalo

As I just moved back to Mississippi for work, I had to leave my two best friends while in the process of working on our first album. We still hope to complete the project, but as for now,  here are the singles.

Fantasies of Men has started to ship - Check Your Mail

Keep a lookout in your mailbox for my collection, Fantasies of Men. It was the 2012 Main Street Rag Chapbook Contest Winner.

Taken from Main Street Rag's Facebook:

WINNER of the 2012 Main Street Rag Chapbook Contest: Fantasies of Men by William Lusk Coppage. Since we are no longer holding a chapbook contest, this is the winner of our LAST chapbook contest. It's high energy, filled with youthful southern-boy angst, blues, and coming of age. We're very proud of this book and hope readers check it out. Here's a link to it on the NEW MSR Online Bookstore:http://mainstreetrag.com/bookstore/product/fantasies-of-men/

Borrowing Night From Day - Limited Copies of 3rd Pressing Still Available

I just heard from my publisher, and he said there are still a few copies of Borrowing Night From Day left. This was a small, limited run chapbook that contained all the poems that Yellow Flag Press had published as a broadside over the last five years. The first and second pressing sold out in record time. Again, there are very few copies of the third pressing left. Please follow the link and purchase one yourself.
