Has a piece left you crying, emoting, or visibly shaken? Can you relate to it intensely or identified with it so strongly you feel the need to share it? Have you witnessed some exceptionally good writing? Then please forward it to me!

This is a call to my readers to help spread the good stuff we so frequently encounter. I’d like to showcase some of the brilliant writers we all know! They deserve some recognition.

Please link to those pieces in the comments or email to me – sushibocks@gmail.com
I will repost them as they are made available to me. I’ll also share those beauties which I’ve found on WP and other places.

Thank you!! 🙂

This month is starting off well! So happy to announce that today Scarlet Leaf Review announced three previously unpublished pieces of mine in their August edition – Not a Stranger, Wounds and Barriers, and Weathered! So many thanks to Roxana Nastase – Editor-in-Chief – for selecting and accepting these pieces for publication. I’m so very honored to be featured in the August online edition!

Happy Dance! 🙂

 

 

 

Poetry Selected for Publication!

So excited (beyond excited!) to receive the news my piece “Ennui” will be included in the Down in the Dirt (v165), July/August 2019 Magazine. It will be released on August 1, 2019. Since it was accepted, I’m also officially listed now as a contributing writer on their website!

I have a feeling this smile on my face will remain for quite a bit of time. 🙂

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!!
