My First Book (Announcement)

My first book entitled My Poetic Truth is reaching its final stages of completion. It should be available for purchase on my blog and hopefully within the next month. You may be wondering as to why you should purchase a book of my poems when I already make a lot my poems available for reading via the internet. The fact of the matter is that this thought almost stopped me from publishing. I wanted to give the public more than just poetry that is already easily accessible. As I began putting my book together at the beginning of last summer, I started to see that my poetry was telling a story. It was telling my story. In turn, this book is actually a story of my psychological and emotional journeys that happen to be accompanied by poetry that reflects a particular part of my story and conscious awakening.
My Poetic Truth is a journey through the human experience. It is more than a random collection of writings that are placed sporadically without purpose or direction. The poetry is broken down into sections that give the poems context and come together to create a story of growth, awakening, and acceptance. The subjects are common enough to be relatable, while unique enough to offer new perspectives and stretch the boundaries of ordinary perception.
I will offer more details as they become available.
