Issue Four Is Here

We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of our fourth child—Issue Four of Bluff & Vine is here!

More than 120 pages feature incredible poetry and prose by 25 talented writers whose work evokes the mystery and wonder of the Finger Lakes. Our cover art is courtesy of painter Mark Stash, whose piece is aptly titled Bluff and Vine.

Click here to pick up a copy of Issue Four from Amazon, or ask your local bookstore to carry it.

As a reminder, we are open year-round for art and written submissions. We can’t wait to see what you’ve got cooked up for us for Issue Five!

    Thanks for including me in this volume.
    I sent three copies via Amazon out to friends and family.
    However, today I can’t find the volume by just searching Amazon, so I’ hesitant to share with people who will be unable to buy one. Any thoughts.

      We have a request into Amazon to figure out what’s going on with search results. In the meantime, the best thing to do is provide and use the direct link. Thanks!

    Your link seems to work here, so I included that in any notification I sent out. I guess that will work, but I’m puzzled as to why volume four does not show up at Amazon along with 1-3 in any search a person without this link might make.

    Once I bought it, Amazon did not display the Issue Four for me again. I had to go searching.

    Under my browsing history, a tab at the the top, I found Issue Four listed with a banner over it saying “Published.”

    Amazon was trying to help me out by preventing me from buying something twice. In my case, I have done that, rarely. And whatever Amazon saved me from was outweighed by the hassle of figuring it.

      We’ve been in touch with Amazon repeatedly to figure out why Issue Four doesn’t come up when someone searches for it. They say we just have to be patient and wait for the search algorithm to update. Very frustrating! They did say that one workaround was to search for Bluff and Vine Issue Four and then click Books in the left-hand menu. Seems to work!

        “Published” in my comment should be “Purchased.” But the site only put the banner on when I have just purchased the book and was going to purchase another to send to another person.

        In any case, your workaround worked for me. Thank you.
