Bird Forgiveness: the Box Landing and Tour

Melinda Palacio

The birds have officially landed. I've received a box of author copies of my new poetry book, Bird Forgiveness. When my publisher requested a photo of me opening the box, I sent several stills and I also took a video to post on the feisboo (the big FB will most likely ban this post as well). I noticed that the ritual opening of the book box is a social media tradition that allows readers to share in the big moment when the author finally views the finished copy of books that will go out into the world. I'm thrilled to share this moment with La Bloga.

Will the birds land in your area?
