Jane's Boy Press is pleased to announce the release of the debut poetry collection by Ann Clark in Spring 2015. Ann's poetry has appeared in the Good Men Project, Ragazine, The Gambler and many other fine journals and magazines, and is forthcoming in The Florida Review. She was also recently named a semi-finalist in the Naugatuck Review's Narrative Poetry Contest for her poem "History Lesson." She has attended the prestigious Sewanee Writer's Conference and holds a Masters degree from Wake Forest. Currently, she is studying in the creative writing program at SUNY Binghamton, where she is working toward her doctorate. Ann's poetry captures a distinctive voice with a skewed vision of the world that sees it in all its truth, even when those truths can be unappealing. She finds the dark humor that hides around the edges of crisis and tragedy. Clever, thoughtful, finely crafted, and always inspiring, her poetry will make a fine volume in any poetry library and we at Jane's Boy are delighted to feature it as our first full-length collection.
Keep your eyes on our site for more news as we work toward the release date. Soon our site will feature author pages spotlighting each of our book authors, including photos, biographies, and samples of their work. To see a preview of what's to come, check back often for our updates or fill out the site contact form to be added to our email list.

Jane's Boy Press is proud to announce the release of its first title, And the Moon is Full Tonight by Carlton D. Fisher. In its 50 pages, And the Moon is Full Tonight focuses on some of the thoughts that haunt us in the night when we are lying awake or wandering the streets looking for sleep to come to us. Images of loneliness, loss, and longing keep returning back to the ever-present moon that hangs above us and how it affects the ebb and flow of our lives. You can order the book now at this link.
