“Transmissions” Press Release

28 years later, local poet publishes debut book online

San Diego, CA – Author, and San Diego native Christopher Vera announced the publication of a debut poetry collection started 28 years ago, entitled “Transmissions to the Mystic Nebula.”

This long-awaited collection of poetry follows the life and relationships of a cyber-poet in the not-to-distant future who seeks to find his place in the universe by initiating several unauthorized communications to a mysterious cosmic phenomenon.

Vera is a contributing member of the Magee Park Poets in Carlsbad, and his work has won accolades both locally and in competition. “San Diego is increasingly the place to be for poets and writers,” he said. “The whole county has more literary talent than most people realize, especially poets and writers of fiction.” Vera also spoke to the growing interest in steam punk, science fiction and fantasy. “Speculative writers are essentially presenting many possible gateways to the future, much like H.G. Wells, Jules Verne and other greats did before them.”

“Transmissions to the Mystic Nebula” is available as an e-book on Smashwords and as an e-book or print-on-demand through Amazon.

Transmissions to the Mystic Nebula eBook Arrives

Its been literally years in the making–I started writing poetry at 15 years old. After years of publishing individual poems in various publications, I decided to voyage into the strange new world of e-publishing.

“Transmissions to the Mystic Nebula” is a collection of poems by a lonely cyber-poet in the not-to-distant future who seeks to make himself heard by initiating several unauthorized communications to a mysterious cosmic phenomenon.

The talented Ali Ries did the beautiful artwork of nebulae that can be found throughout.

You can purchase it on Amazon. I plan to add iBook and even a hard-copy format in the coming weeks.

Thanks to everyone who has supported and inspired me these many years!
