It will be available at Amazon in a few days, same price. I get a bit more money per copy with direct sales through Create Space, but if you get free shipping with Amazon, it’s worth the wait for you.
The title, Dating Tips for Conservatives, is taken from a line in one of the poems in this collection. This is not a political book, not aimed at conservatives, or liberals, or anyone else but poetry lovers.

Ray Sharp, The Bard of Liminga
He dreamed of three blackbirds
perched on a catenary wire
like the ages of man, clear-
eyed, beaks slightly parted
in silent, knowing laughter.
Some memories are dark stains
that never fade, that sharpen
like shadows in white light,
dreambirds. He picks a rock,
hefts it in his mind, takes aim.
You know how every so often
someone will tell you how ravens
are among the smartest animals?
As if you couldn’t tell by the way
they track your progress along the snowy road.
No one ever had to warn ravens about men.
