New! – THE ADVENTURES OF STICK PEOPLE ON CARS

stick-people  “It turns out LB Sedlacek is one of the most prolific writers of our time. I hardly had time to finish breakfast before two more poetry collections slipped into my omelet. In her latest, The Adventures of Stick People on Cars, you’ll be surprised how much flesh a stick figure can have. These poems, physically thin on the page, are wide with sentiment and even experiment. Take the marriage of what could be separate poems in the blended lines of “Magnificent Bully” as two seemingly separate stories collide together in an almost ekphrastic euphoria. In The adventures of Stick people…, you’ll miss LB’s dad right along with her. You’ll turn every page before your first cup of coffee becomes nostalgia. Watch out for bears.” ~Rick Lupert, author of Hunka Hunka Howdee! and God Wrestler: A Poem for Every Torah Portion

New! – THE ARCHITECT OF FRENCH FRIES

architectoffrenchfries“I have been a fan of LB Sedlacek’s work since I discovered her through Poetry Superhighway several years ago, and The Architect of French Fries may be her best work yet. Lean and by turns warm, salty and with a perfect sprinkling of crispy humor, her poems never fail to satisfy and keep you coming back for more.”        – John Burroughs

THINGS TO DO ON VACATION IN FLORIDA WITH YOUR DOG

I always hate leaving our pets at home when we travel. Last year, our dog sitter cancelled – it was the holidays and we had no choice but to take our family pet with us. Our dog was thrilled to be taken along. Since he was a pup, our dog has learned to travel with us. He is a good little travel buddy. No matter where we are, he always makes sure to keep his pack together! These poems are dog friendly, pet friendly odes to what we did on vacation with our dog – it’s amazing the things you can find an experience once your parameters are changed to ones that must include (or must love) dogs! Woof, woof!

New! – CACKALACKA

cacka cover Charleston Silver was just an ordinary boy, an ice runner on Lake James in North Carolina, or what was left. He’d never known what life without ice looked like, none of them did, they’d heard of it but none of them were really sure it ever existed at least not in this corner of western of North Carolina. He stuck to the ice and running. Lake James, when it wasn’t frozen, in places went as deep as 125 feet. Everything was solid ice even the trees were solid blocks of tall frozen ice.  None of them, none of this part of North Carolina knew the sun.  Join Charleston and his crew: Goldsboro, Columbia, Richmond, Wilmington, Jacksonville aka Jackson, and New Bern as they discover what put this particular part of the south, western North Carolina, entirely frozen and in need of the sun.  Do you dare to play the game, the game of Cackalacka?
