Girl and Rain

We have an August Giveaway going on right now (and until the end of August) over at Facebook. There’s a two-step process to enter: “like” Upper Rubber Boot Books’ Facebook page, and then “share” the August Giveaway post, which will be pinned to the top of the page until the end of the month. Five people will win their choice of mobi, epub or PDF of Blueshifting!


140 And Counting contributor news:

David Kopaska-Merkel’s Dreams & Nightmares Magazine blog has a listing of The Magazine of Speculative Poetry‘s next issue’s contents, and it includes Robert Borski. Borski also has a new story at Lovecraft eZine.

David Kopaska-Merkel‘s book of poetry for children The Edible Zoo is available for sale from Sam’s Dot Bookstore.

Finally, Nora Nadjarian‘s The Girl and the Rain is just out from Turtleneck Press.

Intermittent Visitors

Welcome to Intermittent Visitors: a multi-author blog tour!


Read Intermittent Visitor posts here!

You can find notifications of new Intermittent Visitors entries at our blog, or by following us on Twitter or Facebook, or by going to this list.


If you are a writer of any sort, and you have a book you’d like to promote (because remember, at heart this is an internetty version of a book tour), and you’d like to participate, email joanne at upperrubberboot dot com, with this information:

  • Name:
  • Email address:
  • Blog or website (yours or, if you don’t maintain your own site, your profile on your publisher’s website):
  • Major or most recent book/chapbook publication(s):
  • You are willing to: visit others (that is, be interviewed, write a guest post or otherwise appear on somebody else’s blog), and/or be visited (that is, interview another writer, post another writer’s guest blog post, or otherwise host somebody else on your blog). Please note that URB is happier to set people up with interviews if they are willing to do interviews in return, but it’s not required.

If you meet our modest requirements, editor Joanne Merriam will link you up with another writer (or if you’d rather, you can find your own, but contact us first), to be interviewed, reviewed, commented on or responded to. We’ll require that Intermittent Visitor entries link back to this page, and that you send us the link to your post when it goes up, and we’ll request that you display the Intermittent Visitor logo on your post. Easy peasy.
