    Announcing My Poetry Collection, The Drowning Book (2017, Finishing Line Press)
    From: Cristina Baptista
    Date: 2016 Nov 6, 06:40 -0800

    Dear Fellow Voyagers:

    I hope everyone is well. Some of you may remember me as one of the “onboard poets” during the Voyage—the New Bedford to Massachusetts Maritime leg.

    While this is a project different than the Taking Her Back Voyagers collection, I am happy to announce that my full-length poetry collection The Drowning Book is currently available to pre-order from Finishing Line Press.  Some of you may have received postcards in the mail with this news. The book is expected to ship in early February of 2017.


    However, the number of pre-orders determines the fate of The Drowning Book. A successful number of pre-orders (determined by Finishing Line Press) made before the first week of December will mean my book will go to press. Otherwise, I may be unable to make this book a reality.


    The Drowning Book may be preordered here: https://finishinglinepress.com/product_info.php?cPath=4&products_id=2763. You will also find information about the collection, some early reviews, and more information about me.


    If you prefer ordering by mail, let me know—you can email me at CJBHerdsofWords@yahoo.com--and I can send you an order form to print out and send in the mail.


    I hope that some (or many!) of you will consider buying a copy and support me, and independent presses, as I anticipate the release of this collection. Thank you to those of you who have already pre-ordered and thank  you in advance to those of you who will.


    Please forward this information to anyone else you think may be interested.

    Take care,
