What happens when you pair a poet and a thriving singer-songwriter together? You get the marriage of intellect, artistry and a damn good book in your hands.
If & When We Wake is the product of winters and springs. It has been buried under snowpack, thawed, cultivated, scorched by the sun, and buried yet again. The result is a book of poetry and art that shines light on the desperation, helplessness, and loss that everyone feels, and tries to find the beauty of acceptance and growth. It examines the necessity of finding meaning in life after experiencing death.
This collection is an attempt to crack back through the ice and rip out a life that emits a light and a heat. It is the woods. It is the grass poking up between toes and tiny bits of soil underneath fingernails. It is alive, and it will sprout and grow.
If & When We Wake is the poetry and Francis Daulerio and the art of Scott Hutchison. It will be released this coming April through the Unsolicited Press.
We will begin the preorder on March 20, 2015, the first day of Spring. A limited release of SIGNED books will be available to the first 25 buyers. The first set of released books will feature a post script poem written by Daulerio too. We intend to run out of this book. After all Scott's band Frightened Rabbit has way too many followers to count.
To raise funds for our upcoming releases and current year, the editors at Unsolicited Press are going to hold a "Movies We Love" sale! All proceeds of this sale go toward funding upcoming book releases, production, literary journal publication, and maybe a cup of coffee for Rubie Grayson...lord knows she needs it.
Every movie listed has been watched less than 3 times by the editor who is selling it. The movie comes in the original case. A limited quantity is available...for some there is only one, and for others, there may be a few. We gotta say, we think you are going to learn A LOT about us by the movies we watch. Thank you for your support and please keep reading.
If we get a lot of orders on these movies, then the remainder of the books will be fulfilled by Amazon.
By Tuesday you can buy the movies on the BOOKS page. They may be added slowly because it is busy work.
The fundraiser will run through March.
If you want to help us raise funds for our press, you can buy movies directly through Amazon using the links below as well. Every bit counts! Many of these are the same movies that our editors love and are selling!

Listen to Literature
Most of our editors cherish our subscription with Audible. Right now they are offering free trials and a free audiobook. This is a great place to listen to Baxter's "The Art of Subtext." Think about it.
