Harry Potter, I'm coming to kick your ass! - mjp Books
Way back in the olden days (January of 1995) I signed a fancy looking contract with Mother Road Publications for a book of poems and short stories. It was a long and drawn out birth (as these things usually are in the small press) but finally, in April of 1997, alternative man appeared. It was my first book and I was pretty excited about it. When the first 5 or 10 copies came in the mail I opened one of them and smelled it. "Yeah, that smells like a real book," I thought. Hey, you do weird things when it's yours.
