ycrppMy chapbook review of Puzzle Pieces by Bernard Grant just went up on Yellow Chair Review!

This chapbook was a wonderful read. If you’re interested in writing reviews, browse through some of the reviews on their Reviews/Articles page to get a feel for how they are written. Also, many presses/authors will provide a review copy for free.

If you aren’t familiar with Yellow Chair Review, set aside an hour or two with a glass of your favorite adult beverage and check out the variety of talented writers they publish.

Puzzle Pieces is a collaborative chapbook published by Paper Nautilus Press. Here’s a snippet from my review:
