The Not So Sour Chapbook

I'm imagining trumpeters and a fanfare playing in my room rather than the sound of the hoover that's vacuuming up the grass that I trod into the house after mowing the lawn.

Nate Lambert over at Bucket 'O' Guts press has accepted The Sour Aftertaste of Olive Lemon for their chapbook line.

There were definitely squeals, there were definitely tears, and there was almost a broken Cate at the bottom of the stairs - I ran down them too fast in my slippers. More squeals and then a question, 'What's a chapbook?' Another run up the stairs followed by interested party to show them the chapbooks on my bookshelf. Further squeals.
