“Postcards From the Mountain” now available for pre-order

“Postcards from the Mountain” is a collection of photographs of and poetry inspired by the Cascade and Olympic Mountains in the Great Pacific Northwest created by Tacoma writer and photographer L. Lisa Lawrence

Much of the book is centered around Mt Rainier also known as: Tahoma, Tacobeh, Pooskaus, Tacoma and Ti’ Swaq.

The book was born out of the 2014 August Postcard Poetry Fest, which is the brain child of Paul E Nelson and Lana Ayers.

The book will be available in soft and hard cover (image wrap; no dust cover) versions. It contains 31 pages of photographs and poetry.

You can pre-order the book in either format, with shipping or local pickup.

You may also support a print run of the book and the purchase of an IBSN number so that it can be sold by Amazon by purchasing a ticket to the book release party which will be held on Friday, January 16th (Tacoma location to be determined) which is enough past the holidays that scheduling should not be problematic.

If you are not local/unable to attend the book release party, but want to donate to support the print run and IBSN number, you can donate in $10 increments (you can choose whatever quantity you like) from the drop down menu below.

I hope you enjoy the visual and literary journey through this magical part of the world.

The Books Are Here! The Books Are Here!

Today they arrived!

The first printing of Creative Colloquy Volume One was delivered to Jackie Cassella’s house.

Since Jackie is super awesome (and I know where she lives) I was able to swing by and grab mine after work instead of waiting for the reading on Monday. I am not known for my patience when I’m excited about something.

For those who don’t know what Creative Colloquy is, it is described as a “submission based literary site”. It’s so much more than that. It has become a community resource for writers of all genres. It is a gathering, support, laughter, tears, food & beverage. Most of all, it is community.

On the final Monday of each month writers and lovers of all things literary gather at B Sharp Coffee House in Opera Alley for readings by featured authors followed by an Open Mic.

I was excited to have my piece, “Covert Operation Calico” which I read at the May Creative Colloquy event included in the book since there were so many submissions.

This particular piece means a great deal to me, as the true story involved my dear friend, the late Houston S Wimberly III who sadly, passed from this world, far too soon just over two years ago. Having this story published is a bit of a tribute to him and our friendship.

There are 26 writers included in what promises to be the first in a highly successful series. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and in the case of at least one of the stories, you’ll wonder if the statue of limitations has run out.

But don’t take my word for it.

Stop by B Sharp Coffee House 706 Opera Alley in Tacoma on Monday, November 24th at 7:00 PM (you might want to get there early as it’s expected to be a full house) for a reading, to meet the authors and pick up a book. This signing is going to be a bit like a yearbook signing.


Oh, and for my friends who were waiting for a book announcement, this is one of two.

I’m hoping to have my book, “Postcards from the Mountain” ready to go to print at the end of this month. It will contain photographs and a collection of poetry written for the “August Poetry Postcard Project” and inspired by the Cascades and Olympics.
