It’s been a long time coming, but I’m happy to announce that Sobering Thoughts II is in the works, and will be released in late November 2011. There’s a lot of things going on in my life and there is change coming for me as well, and most of this is reflected in the work that will be published in this second volume.
This one’s slightly different than the first (which you can still get a copy of right here). The first Sobering Thoughts was a compilation of lyrical concepts and poetic ideals I’ve been writing since 1991. The contents focused on a broad range of years. For Sobering Thoughts II, it’s a more intense, short term focus of a few years. Instead of delving deeper into my past unpublished works, the collection in ST2 will focus on works from 2005-2011.
There’s still a long way to go on the book, but I’m happy to announce that it’s coming soon. In the meantime, check out the design I’ll be using for the cover art:
