I would like to thank everyone who signed up for my newsletter and giveaway contest. I will send out monthly updates with free stuff and any other giveaways in the future. There is a free eBook download everyone month on the last Friday and I would appreciate honest reviews from anyone who has downloaded my work. This might be part of the next giveaway, I haven’t decided. And the moment you’ve waited for…the winner of the giveaway is Jennifer C. The winner will be contacted shortly, and the signed paperback copy will arrive in the mail within the next few weeks.
If you did not win, there will be other giveaways and since you signed up for the newsletter, you will be informed before everyone else. Congratulations again to the winner! In less happy news, I submitted my collection of poetry to the Pulitzer Prize. Winners and finalists were announced yesterday, and I was not among them. I can still say I tried and will continue writing poetry. Unfortunately, I was sidetracked by so many things that I was not able to writer one poem every day in the month of April. Perhaps I’ll get it done next year.
I’ve decided to continue with posting poetry twice a week from this month forward. It keeps content on my site fresh and so far, folks have really enjoyed it. To receive access to my unpublished poetry, you can subscribe to my Patreaon Page for only $1 a month and receive new content at least once a week. You’ll also be supporting an indie author and you’ll receive my undying gratitude. And wouldn’t that make you feel special? It certainly will. Thanks again to everyone who signed up for the newsletter and another congratulations to the winner.
If you haven’t heard by now, I’m giving away a free signed paperback copy of my collection of poetry “Men Are Garbage” in celebration of National Poetry Month. You only have to sign up for my newsletter to be entered into the giveaway. Sign Up Here! The winner will be chosen and notified on April 15. No purchase necessary. You must reside in the United States. James Pack examines masculinity and anxiety in “Men Are Garbage,” a book of poetry in which he reflects on childhood trauma and his time as a nightclub bouncer.
Once you have signed up for the newsletter, you will have exclusive access to updates and information on new projects. I promise you will not get bombarded by emails. I’ll likely only send out something once a month with details of new things coming. For more frequent updates, you can always follow me on social media or follow my blog. Each Poetry Monday post on my blog features a poem from this collection. If you’re unsure, read through those archived posts and get a small sample of what the collection is like.

On our next installment of Free eBook Fridays, we have a short collection of short stories, “Dollar Tales From the Morbid Museum: Flash Fiction.” I self-published this collection on June 30, 2018 as an eBook. Today only, until midnight, the eBook is available for a free download. Once a month I offer one of my eBooks for free in the hopes that those who download it will read it and write a review on either Amazon or Goodreads. Reviews are not mandatory, but an honest review will help promote my works and are greatly appreciated. Get your free copy before the promotion ends. Download Here.
The purpose of the Dollar Tales collection is to build up the anticipation for the full paperback collection that is coming soon. I publish a couple of stories as an eBook for a dollar and get feedback on the stories. I also have a few stories published in online magazines which will be included in the paperback edition. This process has helped me outline and figure out exactly how I want to present all these stories in one collection. Not simply a collection of stories with a similar theme but a story within a story. That’s why I created the idea of the Morbid Museum.
The Morbid Museum is curated by Siris Grim who holds a fascination with death; the prevailing theme of the Morbid Museum. He acts as a kind of narrator between the exhibits and each exhibit has a number of stories. I had not figured out this part when I published the first two collections of the Dollar Tales series but the next one coming in April will be a part of one of those exhibits. I also hope to have a couple other stories published in magazines before completing the final collection which will feature approximately 20 stories. Enjoy your free copy.
Visitors to the Morbid Museum seek the dark and twisted corners of the world. They are both terrified and intrigued by the unknown. Tales of killers, monsters, and madmen are curated by the Master of Death, Mr. Siris Grim. Mr. Grim collects the darkness that everyone attempts to hide and displays it within the corridors of his gruesome gallery. Who will be next to purchase a ticket and walk the halls of the Morbid Museum?
