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.
Don’t forget to subscribe to my Patreon Page (It only costs $1), like my Facebook Page, and follow me my Instagram Page and Twitter Page. Follow this blog to get updates for all the poetry during National Poetry Month. Enjoy Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Passover, Easter, and Earth Day.
In honor of National Poetry Month, I will post a lot more poetry! I have mostly published something once every couple weeks but I’m moving to every single week and multiple times each week in April. Depending on the success of this, I may or may not continue posting something every week. Poetry Mondays will continue every week and Throwback Thursday Poetry will continue every week. I’m also adding something new. Haiku Hump Day every Wednesday; one short haiku each week. Can you handle all the poetry coming your way?
Friday Fiction and Free eBook Fridays will continue. The free eBook for April is my most recent collection of poetry Men Are Garbage. The poems featured in Poetry Mondays are from this collection. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read each Monday, I encourage you to get the whole collection with 100 poems in total. As always reviews and feedback are always appreciated. You can leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads. You can also write a review on my Facebook Page or jump over to the Contact Page and shoot me an email. You can also follow me on Instagram and Twitter.
On a personal note, I will attempt to write one poem every day in April. I tried this a few years ago and never made it past day 14. My writing has improved since then and I expect that I can accomplish this goal. I also encourage you, if you are a poetry writer or want to be, to challenge yourself to write a certain number of poems in April. I might share a few that I write, but I will not share all of them. You’ll just have to wait until I publish them on my blog or in an eBook. Happy writing!
Good news everyone! On February 12, I will launch an online store for my website. What are some things I’ll sale through this online store? I will have autographed copies of my paperback books for sale. They will be cheaper than buying them from Amazon and with my signature. With shipping, the costs may come out the same. Shoppers will also have the ability to purchase custom written poems and haikus. These custom poems can be about anything one desires; funny, romantic, raunchy, contemplative, etc. I’ll also have poetry prints. These are 11×17 posters with one of my poems for one to hang in their living room or wherever.
The main product I am most excited about is the t-shirts with titles of some of my poems. Each shirt is related to one of the poems in my most recent collection of poetry titled “Men Are Garbage.” Yes, one of the shirts says, “Men Are Garbage.” You’re welcome ladies. At launch, the shirts will be approximately $30 only because I don’t have any in stock and will have to order them to be made for every purchase. Once I can buy many in bulk, the price will drop. Shipping costs will remain the same.
I’m hoping with the sale of books on Amazon and with sales from this new online store, I can make enough money to devote more time to my writing without having to work multiple jobs just to pay the rent. As always, I appreciate those of you who have downloaded my works and I will continue to ask for honest reviews. If you hated it, say so. If you loved it, say so. If you felt indifferent, say so. The more honest the better. Be sure to check out my published works and keep an eye out for more updates as the shop launch comes closed.
