Getting Published

After reaching my goal of writing and publishing seven books last year, this year I’m focused on helping many other writers get their creations published. To that end, three of my current creative projects involve collecting the work of many of my favorite writers and poets and compiling anthologies of their work.

About six weeks ago I mentioned in a post on this blog that I was collecting short stories for an anthology of fiction short stories and another for non-fiction short stories. Those projects are going well. I hope to have collected all or most of the stories for both of them by the end of next month and to publish them soon thereafter.

The working titles for these projects are:

Palpable Imaginings (Fiction)

Slices of Life (Non-Fiction)

I decided earlier today to create a similar project to help poets get their work published. Details can be found on my blog called A Grateful Man’s Poetry at

Heart-Whispers is the working title for the poetry collection.

If you are a writer of short stories and/or poetry and would like to have your creations considered for these projects, I’d love to hear from you as soon as possible. Please contact me at

Thank you!

With Love,
