It's more like Leonard Cohen's poetry books, which were always readily available to fans and friends (and fans are friends so to say)

but it is now much easier access for fans to know about something like this. And it now keeps it in house, though some could be delegated to book stores if she chose.


Chances are it would be perfect in bundles/in tandem with the new album (even if copies are sold early on, much like digital downloads in bundles,

but when the fan actually will take possession of the book is the question.


also, one would assume it could be sold worldwide at the same time, as it is not owned by anyone but her, so there would be no restrictions.


Question will be- what is the anticipated run, and if it is made to order, then there will be a delay in shipping.

She is not going to have many thousands printed in advance.



a funny thought flashed through my mind- for those that watch Better Call Saul -

imagine if she kept copies in her car and distributed them like Jimmy/Saul distributed his trackfree  phones.



fair thought but we also don't know for sure if she's intending on it being for fans, do we? not even positive it's being published at all either.


she could definitely just do it as a passion project and, like someone else mentioned, drop a few off in local bookstores in various locations (or even one location)


i feel like she's not going to turn into a publishing how for a book of 13 poems, it seems more something personal for her to do if she wants to, after all she did include it in the same vein that she mentioned she's taking flying lessons and she's not going to be selling tickets to 'a flight with lana del rey by lana del rey' anytime soon so who knows what's actually going to happen.


i kind of hope she's not doing it to solely market off of it though? like don't do that lana.


tandem is an interesting thought, maybe the poems will be the NFR booklet enclosed? like instead of the typical album info booklet, it'll be 'violet' and maybe they'll be special orders or maybe she's pull a willy wonka and make it random, THEN we'd have a major record merchandise success, you feel? and it would definitely come up online eventually, but if she's going to do poems and poetry i want her to channel her inner beat and really put something out, maybe even under her real name?


there's so many avenues to explore here!

insanity laughs under pressure -- we're cracking

Has everyone bought my recently released book of poems about Lana? It's called "I Fall to Pieces" and the author is Glenn Cooper. Available from lulu.com

I sent Lana a copy. I do hope she gets it.

If Lana's poems are as fun as Leonard's, I'll be very happy.
