Chapbook Publishers?

There are probably two or three people (apart from myself) who have ever looked at this blog. But in case anyone can offer suggestions, I need to be directed towards a publisher who is interested in chapbooks. I've spent much time researching, and about ten minutes ago visited a website that listed several, but most of them are closed to submissions or offer only competitions. I am not interested in contests. So if anyone can help me by offering the name of a press that takes chapbooks, I will be enormously thankful.

At Last

This morning I finished my review book. I did not like it but am very glad to have done with it. Well, of course I've still got to write the review, but it's not due until the eleventh and I have a while to consider just what I want to say, and then to edit. I hate finishing a book the day before the review is due to be sent, or, as I've done a couple of times, the morning before.

My New Friend

Today I went to Lincoln to see my mother's friend's daughter's new baby. Since I've known this family all my life, I felt like an aunt, especially when I got to hold him! I imagined him as beautiful but in reality he was even more beautiful. That was also the case when my brother William was born (I was almost nine, and he's now six). The new baby's eyes are enormous and a very deep blue in a very tiny face. I love him.
