My first book "The Existentialist Cookbook" and the number 2014

The primary book-length manuscript project I have been working on for the past few years, finally started coming together in exciting ways, once I stumbled onto the right title:

The Existentialist Cookbook

Once that came to me, everything started falling into place.
I reorganized the entire project and I am thrilled to announce
that it will be published by NYQ Books in 2014.
I have loved this press since its earliest days, so I could not be any happier.

I cannot thank NYQ Editor Raymond Hammond enough.


  1. This is such good -- and well deserved! -- news. Congratulations Shawnte! Can't wait to cook up your poems.

  2. Wooo! Congratulations! I can't wait.

  3. Thank you thank you.

    I kept it to myself for a few months, because so much was still up in the air, but I was selecting cover art recently and that made it feel more real.
