My Debut Poetry Book Cover

My dear friends,

I’m so excited to announce that my first poetry book is in the final formatting stage. I’ll make another post tomorrow to set a launch date.

The paperback is already posted on Amazon and the proofread copies are on their way to my hands. Formatting the Kindle is another story and I can get it done this weekend.

Thank you for all of your help and encouragement.

I’m thankful for all the support for me to come this far in my poetry book. It surely put a smile on my face. This post is also for Trent’s Weekly Smile.
