Waiting for five poets to send me the blurbs they've written (well, supposed to write) for my next book Andalusian Dawn. I asked two women and three men, one lady is from Chile and was on tour in Argentina when I emailed her my poems, the other woman lives in Oregon and is skittish about writing blurbs because she hasn't written many. Is it really that hard to write these blurbs? What is the protocol for asking famous poets to blurb your book? What if they hate your book and never respond to your emails?
