It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside. It’s what’s on the internet that counts.

I first heard of Beach Sloth through a review he did for a collection of Dianna Dragonetti’s poetry I published through Walking Is Still Honest Press.  I was intrigued by it’s odd ball style.  Beach Sloth then did a write up on my first poetry video, Poetry Kicked Me In The Balls.  The Beach Sloth is a “support each other” human and artist, notorious for a blog with serrated creativity consistently reflective of his individual style.

The Beach Sloth is a wonderful writer, a Nostrovia!n Poet, and a genuine person.  He has conducted many interviews for us with rising poets of the 21st century, written hundreds of reviews, and is one who reaches out to assist others.  Let’s offer back what he has offered to us.

“Trees give their lives for books but usually those books are not as good as Beach Sloth’s debut poetry collection. Few things can be. Beach Sloth has for years, nigh decades, supported people. His credo of “Support Each Other” can be felt throughout the surprising debut poetry collection. At times dark and touching Beach Sloth’s debut poetry collection takes a different approach from his actual blogging material. Yes the playfulness is still there. Yet there is specific commentary on some of the people that Beach Sloth truly cares for both people he has encountered and people he grew up with. For limiting the collection to random strangers, while fitting his blog’s aesthetic, is thrown aside for a more personal approach.”

On October 15th, Dig That Book is going to release a limited number of Beach Sloth poetry books.  You can preorder a copy through Dig That Book.

“Note for Book Price: While I have a ‘pay what you want’ feature I would say that the minimum suggested price for the book is $13 US/Canada, $18 International (I figure I am going to be sending a lot of stuff internationally).”

Jeremiah Walton is wary of bios, but there's the current sign they're flying: “Jeremiah Walton is founder of Nostrovia! Press & traveling bookstore Books & Shovels. They’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival, Oakland Beast Crawl, San Francisco Lit Crawl, Death Rattle, the Kansas City Poetry Throwdown, Cleveland’s Guide to Kulchur: Snoetry, among other lit fests, street corners, & living rooms across the country. They loath-themselves, & are struggling to find a healthy extension of the poem that incorporates publishing. Consistently confused, & trying to make space for compassion for the parts of myself I hate.” That feels like tattooing "love me" across my neck, but hopefully you get to know me thru my poems, not the accolades that are nothing more than memories to let go of.
