Hi Everyone!

So, I’ve made it into The Finals of Chesky Records’ Singer-Songwriter Search.  Out of 3,500 artists, I’m one of the final two singer-songwriters left standing, and if I get the most votes today, I’ll win a record deal and will get to record a new album in September in New York.  Is there any way you would consider voting for me?

Here’s the link!  http://freeonlinesurveys.com/p/YGstMnRM?qid=712461

(If that doesn’t work, try this.)

And as a thank-you, I’m giving away a free house concert, as well as some CDs and vinyl and tickets to my upcoming show at Club Passim on 9/9.  All you have to do is let me know voted (for me, preferably), and you’ll be entered into the raffle!

Thank you so much!  You’re the best!

❤ Molly

“Jack of Hearts”

Cigarette smoke spirals slow
Through the boneyard of blanched corn;
As the fey moon rises low
And starts adorn, love is sworn.

Mouthless moths with hunger slaked
In the ghost-fires of taillights,
Follow powdered hearts that ache
For this night, for this night.

Come, Jack of Hearts,
Here, where it all starts.
And come, Jack of fire,
Take me, mad with desire.
And come, Jack of green,
Bold in dark-wash jeans.
And come, Jack of mine,
Crowned in oak and woodbine,
Jack of mine.

I was born of dying day,
Ocean-wrought and seashore spun;
You from fields of fringe and blaze,
And rising sun, you’re the one.

So, lay the cards, love, facing down,
Diamond ace and scarlet deuce.
Six hearts flutter to the ground,
Tumbling loose, tumbling —

As the briar and the rose,
May our heartbeats entwine,
Blooming blood as love grows:
Eglantine, eglantine…

Come, Jack of Hearts,
Here where it all starts.
And come, nameless Jack,
Through the gold tamaracks.
And come, Jack of truth,
All bright-eyed with youth.
And come, Jack of mine,
Evergreen as the pine,
Jack of mine.

140 characters.

That’s all you have to summarize the quintessence of your book. Oh, and while you’re at it, you need to make it dazzling enough to catch an agent’s eye: a snappy, summer sparkler that will blind with its brilliance and stand out against the annoyingly clogged Twitter feed. “For cripessake, we’re novelists,” you say. “140 characters couldn’t adequately describe an exceptionally dull pack of chewing gum, let alone a completed masterpiece of literary achievement!”

I hear you. I feel your pain. I question your judgment in using the word cripessake, but, hey, you’re a neologist. I dig it. Save some of that panache for your Twitter pitch, you! Okay, so the truth of the matter is: it’s a miserable pain in the arse trying to squeeze an intelligible pitch…
