On June 24, 2014, we’ll celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the Silver Birch Press blog. Thank you for your visits during the past years! This week, we passed a new milestone: 1,000 followers!

Our 1,000th follower is hesterglockpress, an independent publisher in the United Kingdom run by author Paul Hawkins, whose work appeared in the Silver Birch Press Noir Erasure Poetry Anthology (December 2013). We are pleased to report that we are now following hesterglockpress. Great site, Paul!

To commemorate our latest milestone, we asked our 1,000th follower Paul Hawkins to pick any book from the offerings featured at silverbirchpress.com — and he selected our May 2013 release BULL: The Journey of a Freedom Icon, poems by Salinas, California, poet laureate James Golden. The book is on its way, Paul. Thank you for following the Silver Birch Press blog and for contributing your poetry to our collections.
