Perfection is Failure by Will Mayo

June 2022 C.M.P. Featured Writers

Another great lineup this month! I’ve got some new voices and poetry from regular contributors in there as well. I didn’t get any art submissions. Thought I’d at least get a few. If y’all have any art or know any artists, send it/them my way. I’d love to start featuring some artwork. Send all writing and art submissions to cajunmuttpress@gmail.com with a bio and photo. I’ll get back to you soon as I can.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next book release! A chapbook by Will Mayo titled Perfection is Failure. Dropping in a couple of weeks on June 14th. Last month How do you recycle a Siberian tiger? by R. Keith was published on May 24th and is still available. I’m working on the cover for The Mourning Hour by Frogg Corpse at the moment. I’ll announce the release date soon. I also have books by Aleathia Drehmer, Dusty Jaggers, David Alec Knight, Ryan Quinn Flanagan, and a few others in the works. If you’ve sent a manuscript and haven’t heard from me yet, please be patient.

How do you recycle a Siberian tiger? by R. Keith

I still don’t know how to adequately recycle a Siberian tiger after reading R. Keith’s new book but this tiger of a collection burns bright with good old fashioned hardboiled set tails (get it?) and quirky circumstances sprinkled with a dash of snotty yet self-mocking existentialism… A surreal grindhouse collection of stories with some pretty contemplative musings from Canada’s very own non-film-making Tarantino.
—Mike Zone, EIC of Dumpster Fire Press

Entitling a story “Shit Head” might suggest angsty teenage skateboard rebellion, R. Keith’s collection of short stories however, points to a considerably more sophisticated mind, well versed in humor, self-reflection, and a gift of crawling into the murky crevices of the human psyche only the most worldly of wordsmiths possess. Pop-Culture namedropping gets tedious in some hands; in R. Keith’s possession, references to Moesha soon progress to arguments on Basketball courts, while Vanishing Act is an intriguing piece full of romantic allusions to faraway places with strange sounding names that could easily take a dark twist from out of nowhere and soon become the most difficult case Columbo will ever have to solve. Mr. Keith is a unique writer, one I wish I could read more often.
—John Doyle, author of A Stirring At Dusk, and Leaving Henderson County

C.M.P. Featured Writers, April 2022

I’m running behind today. Woke up late, got distracted by some other things I had to do, then didn’t even realize it was April 1st until I went to put the featured writer post together. April is also national poetry month, but my life revolves around poetry every single day. So this month won’t be any different for me. I’ve fully dedicated myself to this craft, and I’m proud of what Cajun Mutt Press has evolved into over the last four years. Thank y’all for coming on this journey with me. Cheers to many more poetry-fueled years to come!!

Now, to the business at hand. If you’d like to submit some writing for a featured writer spot, send 1-3 poems to cajunmuttpress@gmail.com along with a bio and author photo. I have three spots left to fill in July. Then I’ll be reading for Aug.

Manuscript submissions are officially CLOSED. If you’ve sent one in and haven’t heard from me yet, please be patient. I’m getting back to people quick as I can. So far I’ve released two books in 2022. Seven Times Down by Wilfred Hildonen, and Before the Bridges Fell by David O’Nan. The links are included in this post. Please leave a review if you’ve grabbed a copy! I also have upcoming titles by Hugh Blanton, R. Keith, Dusty Jaggers, Aleathia Drehmer, Will Mayo, and Frogg Corpse lined up. Keep your eyes peeled for more details coming soon. To the others that I haven’t gotten to yet, you’ll be hearing from me soon.

Love Y’all, Write On!

Now Available From Cajun Mutt Press

Now Available from Cajun Mutt Press, Before the Bridges Fell by David O’Nan!!

Before the Bridges Fell is a series of poetry based on characters that are scrambling to figure out life before the inevitable destruction of their towns, their ideals, fantasy worlds, fame of past figures that seemed to work so well to influence and shape today’s world. Before the Bridges Fell and what is unknown is always in the back of your head, and you are still expected to live your life without worry, hardly. That unknowing is always there. The script isn’t fully written, and so the improvisation of our everyday lives can be scary.
