Hidden Timber Books is thrilled to announce the acquisition of two new titles to be published later in 2017: a poetry chapbook titled The Salt Before it Shakes by Yvonne Stephens and collected short stories by Carol Wobig.
Yvonne Stephens lives with her husband and two children in Northwest Lower Michigan. She has worked as an assistant in the fields of mycology, forestry, and neurology research, volunteered for two years in the AmeriCorps, and most recently was an Artist Residency Coordinator for the Crosshatch Center for Art and Ecology. An award-winning poet, Yvonne was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2015, and her poems have appeared in the Dunes Review, the LAND Creative Writing Journal, and Family Stories from the Attic. Her forthcoming chapbook will be the first of two titles by Yvonne to be published by Hidden Timber Books. Visit her blog at poetwith40eyes.com and connect with her on Facebook.
Carol Wobig writes short stories, humor, and monologues, usually set in small town Wisconsin or the convent. Her writing has won awards from the Writer’s Digest Competition, the Florence Lindemann Humor Contest (sponsored by WRWA), and the Lorian Hemingway Short Story Competition, and her monologues were selected for performance by the Village of Wauwatosa One Act Festival. Carol’s short stories have attracted fans in Gray Sparrow Journal, Clapboard House Journal, and on Milwaukee Public Radio’s Flash Fiction Friday. Her forthcoming volume of collected short stories will include her previously published collection, Poached Is Not an Option, as well as many new stories, some of which continue the lives of characters from Poached.
