a few quick updates for you on the Emily Rose front. Donna Vorreyer wrote a wonderful review of Mouthy over at Drunk in a Midnight Choir. Check it out if you have a moment or two. Also, Emily Rose will be featuring at Wit Rabbit, here in Chicago, on September 6th if you still haven’t gotten your copy of her amazing book signed. Stop by and say hello.
check out this wonderful review of Emily Rose Kahn-Sheahan’s book Mouthy in New City Chicago. Our favorite line from the review: “Mouthy” expresses a self-assured elegance and an implicit argument about women’s self-expression through language and society’s reactions to it.
Many thanks to everyone who donated to or shared the kickstarter for Emily Rose Kahn-Sheahan’s wonderful new book. We’ve still got five days to go if you wanted to pre-order the book or snag any of the sweet prizes we are offering.
In other news, if you are in Los Angeles from March 30th-April 2nd, Captain Josh Gaines and Emily Rose will be representing Thoughtcrime at AWP. Stop by our table and say hello. We’ll have books, swag, hugs, laughter, whiskey.

Holy moly friends! We’re now taking Mouthy pre-orders here. If you have a moment, check out the kickstarter, buy the book, or share with your friends. What a cover, what a collection, what an author. We here at Thoughtcrime couldn’t be more proud of Emily Rose and her incredible poems.
We at Thoughtcrime are so proud of, and excited to, share this book with all of you.
