{ 2 } the first mlp bookmark contest:

The first ever Mud Luscious Press contest is underway now & closes on May 1st. We want your 150-word or less story or poem for our next slick printed bookmark, to be included with all the novel(la) & chapbook shipments beginning in June. $5 for one entry, $8 for two, & our winners (x2) will each receive one-quarter of the total entry fee pool plus a load of c. copies to distribute as they see fit. Enter your work here

{ 3 } our AWP reading with FlatmanCrooked:

Join us at AWP – on April 9th, 4:00 pm, at the FlatmanCrooked booth, we are co-hosting the first ever puppet reading. Featuring Joanna Ruocco, Alyssa Knickerbocker, Molly Gaudry, Emma Straub, Elizabeth Ellen, Edan Lepucki, Jac Jemc, Aaron Burch, & Bradley Sands – all controlling their fmc designed puppets as they read their work. Keep the date on your radar

{ 4 } pre-orders for the 2010 novel(la)s:

Don’t forget, in June we will release both AN ISLAND OF FIFTY by Ben Brooks & WHEN ALL OUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED MARCHING BANDS WILL FILL THE STREETS & WE WILL NOT HEAR THEM BECAUSE WE WILL BE UPSTAIRS IN THE CLOUDS by Sasha Fletcher. Two amazing books that are already getting some big mentions from some big writers:

AN ISLAND OF FIFTY is a new literary bomb, resulting in the shrapnel of gold, ships, ocean, chandeliers, dreams, blood, & flame. Old & stale literature won't know what just hit. This is something new masking itself in the old & I'm so so so excited. -- Shane Jones, author of LIGHT BOXES

My advice: those who are to read Sasha Fletcher's delightful enjoinder WHEN ALL OUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED should go into an empty house of an afternoon, shut themselves in a backroom closet on a low shelf, & read straight through without stopping. -- Jesse Ball, author of THE WAY THROUGH DOORS

Pre-order both here.

Hope to see you at AWP,

J. A. Tyler
