January 15, 2022 – Amazing news this evening! My new collection of poetry, Cold Comfort House, was just accepted for publication at Anxiety Press and will be nipping at the heels of Book #2 Blood Honey (also from Anxiety Press) in no time. Glad to keep things in the AP family. HUGE thanks to Cody Sexton for the continued support.

“Poetry should grab us and make us either want to heal or destroy the world. Blood Honey does both.” — Justine Jones, editor and cultural critic

September 15, 2021 – I am happy to announce that Luca Bowles (a.k.a. Mambo) and I have received the contract for little punctures, our illustrated book of micro poetry, from Really Serious Literature (@rlysrslit) and we are in the process of getting that ‘bad boy’ signed and back into Barracuda’s hands. This project, the sophomore effort since my first book of poetry and short fiction Indelible Fingerprints (Alien Buddha Press), has been years coming and– thanks to @rlysrslit–will be a reality soon. Publication is scheduled for 2022.
August 5, 2021 – Awesome news today. My second book–an illustrated collection of micropoems–which is a multimodal, creative collaboration with UK illustrator and artist, Luca Bowles (a.k.a. Mambo), will be published at @RLYSRSLIT sometime in 2024. So glad to have found a home for this project. Many thanks to Barracuda Guarisco for the acceptance.
August 25, 2019 – Terribly excited that reprint of poem “AI! AI! AI! (A Tartarus for Youth)” appears in Clarendon House Publications‘ newly released Poetica: The Inner Circle Writers’ Group Poetry Anthology 2019. Many thanks for Grant Hudson (CHP Founder) and to Terror House Magazine for originally publishing the piece.
July 7, 2019 – One of the first poems I ever wrote, “Solace”, is featured today in Elixir Magazine’s Issue #7. Accompanying it is a review of my book of poetry and prose Indelible Fingerprints by Maryam Quereshi. Always thankful and grateful for their continued support of Elixir Magazine and their wonderfully creative and talented staff.
May 2, 2019 – The book review for Kiriti Sengupta’s book of poetry, Rituals, was wrapped up today and submitted to various venues for publication. Many thanks to Kiriti and his publishing house Hawakal Publishers for reaching out and asking me to review this marvelous piece of work. It was an absolute pleasure to engage with.
Current reviews in the works are Amirah Al Wassif’s For Those Who Don’t Know Chocolate and ReVerse Butcher’s On the Rod, an Artist’s Book.
May 5, 2019 – The Elixir Magazine, one of my absolutely FAVORITE literary mags (and not just because I am an editor/writer there), reprinted six of my previously published haiku (from Indelible Fingerprints [Alien Buddha Press]) in their May 2019 issue:
“Angels in the Morning” (originally published at Expat Press)
“As I Wake” (originally published at Expat Press)
“Gossip” (originally published at Terror House Magazine)
“Epiphanies” (originally published at The Ugly Writers)
“Fireflies” (originally published at Expat Press)
“Gin & Tonic” (originally published at Expat Press)
These ten “little darlings” will appear some time today. This feels especially good since I am currently working on content for my second book, which will be a collection of haiku poetry. I am all about haiku right now. The May issue is an especially special one as it is focused ENTIRELY on literature. Looking forward to get back to editing for the June issue. So glad Elixir has continued to support my work and to continually be an “Artist in Residence”.
April 21, 2019 – David A. Estringel’s first published book Indelible Fingerprints from Alien Buddha Press contains prose and verse that are reflective of the significant parts of David’s life that have not only shaped him but left permanent marks (both good and bad). This published work will contain 40 pieces of poetry and prose that have been previously published and reprinted in over 43 literary magazines and journals in the United States and abroad. Indelible Fingerprints offers 37 pieces of verse, ranging from free-verse to prose poetry to haiku, of various influences (Classical to dirty realism). Three short stories are also included that encompass oeuvres of kitchen sink realism, speculative fiction, and the surreal.
