In future posts I will write about how I arrived here, and offer tips and links that poets just beginning their careers may find useful.
But first I would like to thank my publisher, Karen Kelsay of Kelsay Books, whose patience and good judgement are amazing.
Also, a shout-out to my webmaster, Suzanne Burton of the Burton Consulting Group This site was up and running in just a few hours. Her expertise, clarity and congeniality made working with her a pleasure. (I modified what she set up for me, so any mistakes are mine!)
