They’re Here!

Greetings dear readers!

Hope the weekend was kind to you. April has arrived and this month is National Poetry Month (request your poster here) which also means the start of NaPoWriMo. I usually partake in this 30 day challenge, but not this year.  Instead I’m taking a break, I’ll be back next year though.

Instead of a daily poem, I self-published two poetry books that are now available at CreateSpace, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords. I mentioned them last month and now they’re here!

First up is the start of a new series for me titled Acrostic. This book is my first attempt at writing acrostic poems and you’ve got a couple of KPop groups to thank for that. With their many attempts of doing acrostic poetry, I became curious and gave it a try.  It was a fun experience and I hope to write a second entry. Acrostic is available in print and ebook formats. Add it to your GoodReads Shelf.

My second book Thirty Days of Expressive Imagination, is a print collection of my NaPoWriMo ebooks that I’ve written from 2014-2017. This year I won’t participate in NaPoWriMo so this book will take the place of the poems that I would usually write.  Thirty Days of Expressive Imagination is only available in printAdd it to your GoodReads Shelf. 

April’s also my birthday month (psst… gift ideas) so I look forward to celebrating.

Finally here’s a gentle reminder that you have read any of my books please feel free to leave a review.  Reviews are essential in getting the word out and they mean a great deal to authors-especially to indie authors  such as myself. Once again thank you for your support.

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Arriving This April: Acrostic & Thirty Days of Expressive Imagination

Happy Wednesday folks!

I’ve returned from my spring break refreshed, and I hope that your spring break is or was a good one for you. Today I have an announcement. April’s National Poetry Month and I’ve got two poetry books being released! First up is the start of a new series for me titled Acrostic.

 

This book is my first attempt at writing acrostic poems and you’ve got a couple of KPop groups to thank for that. With their many attempts of doing acrostic poetry, I became curious and gave it a try.  It was a fun experience and I hope to write a second entry. Acrostic will be available in print and ebook formats. Add it to your GoodReads Shelf.

My second book Thirty Days of Expressive Imagination, is a print collection of my NaPoWriMo ebooks that I’ve written from 2014-2017. This year I won’t participate in NaPoWriMo so this book will take the place of the poems that I would usually write.  Thirty Days of Expressive Imagination will only be available in print. Add it to your GoodReads Shelf. 

Both books will be available on Createspace, Amazon, & Barnes and Noble. Acrostic will be available on Smashwords.

These two books get me 2/3’s of the way to my goal of publishing three books for the year. Currently I’m taking a break from writing but I hope to return to it in order to achieve my goal.

Please Review My Poetry and Horror Short Story Collections

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Hope all is going well with you and your kin. If not,  I hope things get better and send you Galactus sized hugs.

If you’re not too busy on this hump day, I’ve got a small favor to ask. As you know I’ve published six poetry books and a horror short story/flash fiction collection, which is awesome. But overall, I’ve only got a total of two reviews, which isn’t all that great.

review-collage1 So I’m asking my followers if  you could check out my books and post a review on Amazon,  Barnes and Noble and Goodreads.

Three of my poetry books-the NaPoWriMo series-are available for free on Smashwords and Barnes and Noble, while the other three-the Unconscious of an Ethiopian Princess Trilogy- are only $.99 cents in ebook form.

I’ve made my horror short story/flash fiction collection free to download exclusively at Instafreebie.com. There are only 31 ebook copies available and you have until March 10th. 

I appreciate it and hope you enjoy your ebooks. Thanks again!
