Proxy by R. Erica Doyle reviewed on Lambda Literary!    

Read the review HERE!

"Proxy's themes may not be new, but they are written anew and exerted with the sensual force seen most powerfully in a community of comrades: the queer and feminist movements and their warrior writers. Doyle carries the torch of her predecessors, blazing the trail from her pen."
-Jessica Mason McFadden

by LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs 

#9 on the SPD poetry bestseller list!

Read the review HERE!

"Twerk is an experimental phenomenon in that each poem stands at the precipice of a new beginning, ready to leap into neoteric meaning, sounds and symbolisms. I call the reading experience an explosion of sound. "
