--Excited to announce that next poetry book slated to come out in 2023
--12/13/21 Blurb.com is not showing that The Story of Doves book is also for sale on Ingram/Amazon/other online book retailers although book is for sale in those places. Also still having trouble having books show up in bookstore search bars when book titles and/or author name typed in. Working on fixing that along with reported errors of publication dates.
For example, Discover Books bookseller is selling the books, but the books cannot be found there when book titles and author name are typed in for search.
So here are url links to use instead for anyone interested:
--12/10/21 Two of blurb children's tradebook versions (Critters book and Doves Two book) back up and priced
--Oct/Nov 2021 Apologies for some current issues with blurb books, ISBNs, and their availability.
Also blurb's bookmaking costs increased recently.
Lynne is planning to get two books back up on blurb.com that disappeared,
as book pricing is prohibitive on Ingram/Amazon/other online retailers via the blurb.com contract
with the dove book list price of $29.98 also only being 42 cents earnings for author.
--12/18/20 Secondary Cicatrices poetry book seems to be ready for sale and back on line!

---Lynne is very grateful that Nebo: A Literary Journal published one of her poems in their Spring 2019 issue. There were, however, five errors/typos in their printing of it. Here is the correct version:
What made me think
that a mounted head on a wall was okay?
Above the fireplace, remnants of a moose
jut out as if the partial animal belongs there,
its foam-stitched skull screwed together,
glass eyes touched with clay
staring interminably without body, some
tanned, twisted presentation of death, vestige
constructed by taxidermist
stuffed, wild creature seeming to break through wall
at forever-at-peace pace to remind—remind us of what?—
that you, its hunter, killed the animal with a gun?—
How you didn’t miss in your shots?
That you scared and delivered pain several times
till the animal lay dead in a blood-spilled no escape?
Maybe someday your own human head
will hang in a home of another alien species,
the trophy of you signifying that your attacker
got you—shot you right in the back—
another easy slaying preserved for all to view—
one more human who didn’t see it coming—
clueless you—foraging prey.
You’d proclaim you didn’t deserve it—
yet you’d have no voice to call out
to question such an ill-begotten fate.
Your death to silence
would be way beyond your control.
