Now Available: Gypsy Horses by Courtney A Butler

Swimming with Elephants Publications, LLC is excited to announce the release of Gypsy Horses by Courtney A Butler.

Also at the release will be artwork from the talent Judy Marquez who created the cover of this lovely publication. Musical Guest to be announced.

“Courtney Butler has written a book that manages to be strong and fierce while remaining innocent and full of wonder. Balancing the line between jaded adult and hopeful youth while painting the clearest picture of why the writing evokes that same sentiment- this is a fun, emotionally fulfilling collection that I will enjoy the 37th time as much as the 1st. I’ll be pre-ordering her next book, as there will surely be many more.” – Wil Gibson, author of Quitting Smoking, Falling In and Out of Love, and Other Thoughts About Death

“Courtney Butler has a finesse with the image of the word, but it is her visceral emotion that feeds the reader’s need to connect on a gut level. Her words rumble throughout your body, clang around your brain and leave their stories imprinted on your heart.” ~Jessica Helen Lopez, author of Cunt.Bomb. and The Language of Bleeding

 Courtney is one of the winners of this year’s chapbook competition, judged by ABQ Poet Laureate Jessica Helen Lopez.
