Universal Oneness

Well, it was bound to happen. 

Dearly departed Allen Ginsberg doing Tai Chi in some hybrid version of Jewish-Buddhist-Gay-Poet heaven hath smiled upon me and convinced an Indian professor of English to accept one of my poems in a multi-national anthology.

Yep.  The improbabilities and interconnections in this wide world never cease to amaze me.

After inviting me to submit in October (which is rare for me), I got word from Dr. Vivekanand Jha that my poem 'Allen Does Tai Chi' was accepted "for publication in the poetry anthology, ‘Universal Oneness: An Anthology of Magnum Opus Poems from around the World’ (360 poems by 360 poets from 60 Countries) to be published by Authorspress, New Delhi, India."

Authorspress and its imprints are leading publishers in India for Scholarly and Academic Writings,
edited books, Critical Anthologies, M. Phil & PhD Thesis, Poetry, Short Fiction, Novels, etcetra with a list of renowned writers to its credit.

They are committed to introducing new and vibrant authors from all over the world.  They publish in English, Hindi as well as in all other national and regional languages.

Updated: Ramone Needs Artists

UPDATE: The contest closes on January 31 2019.  Good luck!

I am in the final stages of publishing a children's picture book called "Ramone's Silver Rocket."

I thought it would be fun to include drawings from children, and I'd like to have parents send me e-mail with their child's drawing. Here are some details:

1. Send hand-drawn pictures of Ramone flying in his rocket or exploring on the moon. He likes to look for colorful moonstones, so include those if you want. My image below is just for fun. Your picture can look very different.

2. Include the child's name and age (so I can credit them in the book if they are picked). I need a postal address as well so I can send a contributor copy if they are picked. Please provide a US postal address only.

3. For winning entries, I will (a) credit the child in the book and (b) send a free contributor copy of the book when it's finished.

4. Send contest entries via e-mail to RamoneRocketeer@gmail.com.

Prompt Attention

I am working with a local county government to hold four creative writing workshops in July 2019. As part of that preparation, I developed a reference book of 365 writing prompts.

It is available in print HERE  and electronic HERE.

Use them as-is, or allow your mind to wander over the mental pictures they conjure; I bet you’ll be surprised where you end up! I have used these prompts for my own writing. Now I want to share them with others who need ideas to juice up their work.

Ramone's Silver Rocket: Two Days Left

"T minus 2,"
Says the ground crew.
Ramone smiles wide;
He's ready to ride
     In his silver rocket.


With two days left on my campaign, we're ending with three publishers showing interest.  Maybe more will join, but three is a good start.

Thanks to everyone who pre-ordered, and I hope we will have good news in 2019.  I am quivering with anticipation, so stay tuned for more excitement!

There is still time to pre-order and share my mission to launch Ramone.
