Media from May All Our Pain Be Champagne

For added marketing of my chapbook, I created two videos. The first is a book trailer for the book, and the second is a recording of my poem “Erika Jayne with One Hand on a Bible.”

Also, the amazing Nicole Tallman recorded herself reading my poem “Ashley Darby Counting Her Blessings While Counting Ceiling Tiles” as part of the Sealey Challenge, and I can’t help but archive that.
