Confessions Of A Book Aficionado

Untitled

sweet birdies quartet
delightful awakening
a smile escapes me

coffee is brewing
yummy breakfast awaits me
sunday, reading day

true crime story first
one book down, now another
this time poetry

reading all morning
it is time for a long nap
woke up ravenous

finished a big lunch
much more reading to be done
trying for three more

a restful sunday
weekend sadly over now
work again monday

 

The Last Chapter

Untitled

The exquisite tales spun
come to a close once again.
Leaving adventure behind
and me, in agony.

A pause in the decadence,
excitement and joy.
Left hanging in the abyss
after the final scene.

Oh, but the good stories
last forever though,
revived again and again.
These treasures never die.

May the next threshold
open up a tasteful selection
to fill my needs and desires.
I’m looking for a classic.

I’ve had the pleasure to get to know Bette a little after I found her blog earlier this year. In her own words, “I am a writer inspired by nature and human nature.” What wonderful topics to immerse yourself in and be inspired by!!

And Another Book Is Born!

At the beginning of the year, I did not even imagine that another book would be forthcoming in 2018. I was just thrilled to have accomplished my original goal of becoming a published author with Feeling Human.  However, my mind changed and late Fall, I started working diligently to produce this by the end of the year. And success! 🙂

This book is the collection of all the pieces I posted here on I Write Her. 365 days of what was rolling around in my brain put in a book. I think this became a reality because of the overwhelming support I’ve received here. The readership here helped to boost my confidence level and my desire to create. I felt comfortable to share, and it spurred me on to do more.

For those who follow me here, you’ll know the pieces in the book because they are all the posts from my blog. Also, there are fifteen new poems which were never published on I Write Her. These were days where posts were either announcements, the TMI Tag or Awards answering questions. Relevant at the time, but not something that reflected the intent of this book.

A big shout-out to my friend Candice Louisa Daquin! She was incredibly supportive of this project and supplied the foreword for the book. I will be forever grateful for her love and encouraging words for my efforts! If you have not read her blogs or her books, do it! You can find her work here on Amazon. She is an incredible writer! You can thank me later. 🙂

To purchase a copy from Amazon, just click on the link under the picture above. Or if you are interested in purchasing a signed copy of the book, I will probably do a bulk purchase for my inventory sometime in January. Just send me a message on my contact page, and I will add you to the list.

So what do I do next? I’ve got a few thoughts, but I’ll share that with you next year!

Thank you all for the heartfelt love and support you showed me in 2018!!
