Egrets Reading

chapbook review sites?

Yesterday, I received my copies of unfinished book, and I'm very happy with the final product.

Now, I'm wondering where I can have it reviewed? Any ideas?

The work is mainstream - no spaceships or stars in this one. (Ok, I confess...there are three poems about the moon, one of my astronomical obsessions, but in non-genre treatments).

Of the 39 poems, there are 19 haiku, 16 cinquains, 1 cinquain sequence, 1 solo rengay, and 2 free verse poems. So, it's not really enough of a haiku book to be reviewed for the haiku journals (although I might try it), but it's definitely a short verse chapbook.

Here's a link to one of the moon poems included, written during that period where I was writing cinquains for all of the Native American moon names (i.e. thunder moon, worm moon, frog moon, hunter's moon, etc, etc):

Strawberry Moon
(scroll down a little)

The other poems in the chapbook aren't quite as sexy as this one, so sending it to an erotic journal for review won't work either - lol.
