Goodreads Giveaway for a signed copy of Pigtail Duty!


I just launched my first Goodreads giveaway! If you’d like to enter to win a signed copy of my chapbook Pigtail Duty, recently released from dancing girl press, have a look see & add it to your TBR. The winner will receive one free copy mailed to their home with a special handwritten note on a vintage library return card.

Begun over eight years ago, Pigtail Duty is an attempt at piecing together fractures, at reassembling an identity. Identity being a continuous state of becoming, it marks the nodes & portals of transformation through the lens of a feminist suddenly married & mothering.
