Palimpsest, my new chapbook, is available now. I will ship you a copy for FREE if you would like to swap a copy of your own chapbook. If you don’t have a chapbook of your own, I am willing to swap a copy for a chapbook, journal, CD, or used book from your personal library. Authors with full length collections, I’ll swap a copy of Palimpsest and Anywhere Avenue in exchange for your book.

For more swap info, contact me via e-mail at oscar(at)oscarbermeo(dot)com
Please include the words “Palimpsest Chapbook Swap” in the subject line of your message.
