publishing my poems: will u want a copy?

This idea came to me in the middle of the night, perhaps by way of a dream, I do not know. I have decided to do a simple first publication of my collection of poems over the years.

The books will be handwritten and handstitched-bound; unique and each copy one-of a kind. I am asking Little Jam Jar http://www.shop.littlejamjar.com/ to stitch bind the books for me so what you see on her Etsy store is similar to what my poetry book will look like.

Will select the poems to publish, possibly about close to 60 of them, and arrange them by theme.

I won't embark on this project until I know if there are people out there who will buy my poetry book. The price would be similar to paperback books but slightly higher, since I will be printing them by hand. If you would like one, let me know so I can decide to print them. Leave a comment or better yet, tweet me @avalon to let me know.

Hoping the money raised from selling my poetry will help alleviate the financial burden my illness has caused, and possibly help fund future medical bills as well.
