Goodreads Giveaway and a Hi-Def Video of a Recent Reading in Flagstaff

There's a day or two left to enter a giveaway for a copy of my book The Existentialist Cookbook over at Goodreads, by clicking on this link:

If you want to see the live action adaptation of some of those poems, here is a video from my reading at the Narrow Chimney Reading Series in Flagstaff:

Narrow Chimney is an award-winning series that takes place on Mondays during the Northern Arizona University school year at the Uptown Billiards Pubhouse. It's a great venue with one of the most appreciative and supportive audiences you will be fortunate enough to encounter. It's hosted organized by Jesse Sensibar in cooperation with N.A.U.'s mfa program and Thin Air Magazine. Definitely worth checking out, if you're ever in the Flagstaff area.


  1. wow I was only going to check it out for a minute and I had to stop everything I was doing, all the other windows on my computer sat untended for the entire 24 minutes. Shawnte really grabs the attention and when its over I feel Ive been changed for the better. I especially like a certain poem about 3/4 through that will be in his upcoming book I hope, brought tears to my eyes. I heard him read it in Tucson last month and was hoping to hear it again and feel blessed it is in here. I don't know of another poet who has the same quality of content, who reads as compellingly as Shawnte. Not even ___. You've met your goal to be as good as him, brother, and then some.

  2. Thanks for the support, Patrick. I appreciate it more than you know. I will have a new chapbook out before too long and I'm almost positive that it will include those poems.

    P.S. - I hope it won't take me another 5 years to get back to Tucson!
