Days and Times: Poems from the Liturgy of Living

by Paul Hooker

Friends of this blog;

I am in print! It is with joy and a profoundly sinful pride that I announce the publication of Days and Times:Poems from the Liturgy of Living, my first published collection of poems, from Resource Publications (an imprint of Wipf & Stock Publishing, Eugene OR).

Readers of this blog will be familiar with many of the poems in this collection. I have used this space as a sort of test lab for my efforts, and many of you have responded with support, encouragement, and the occasional and much-appreciated word of constructive critique. I am deeply grateful.

I anticipate have publication details (date, price, ordering information) in about two weeks, and I will share that here as soon as I have it.

In the meantime, please keep following and reading this blog. I will continue to use it as a sort of poetic proving ground, and I truly enjoy our engagement around these words. So stay tuned: there is more to come.

— Paul
