Just a quick post to let you all know that my poetry book/ fact-fiction life story is now available on AMAZON and Barnes & Noble. It has taken me a little while but I’ve finally done it. The book at the moment is POD from Blurb.com and I also have copies available to autograph in my possession on my website if you would like that. So now I can fully push on with the extended version and then move on to book #2 in the series.
A brief look behind my book. I’m thinking about doing another more in-depth look at it. Let me know if you guys want to know more.. (and no you are not seeing double this was on my other blog lol)
Where did Black Canvas come from?
Honestly, out of nowhere. I had started writing another book called “In Her Ruins” (which I’m still working on) and got the sudden urge to stop because that wasn’t the book I needed to be writing, so I put Ruins on hold and wrote Canvas.
What is the inspiration for the book?
As simply as I can state it, life and silence.
There are so many things going on in just our little versions of the world and the number of things we choose to stay silent about when indeed we should speak. I admittedly stayed silent about a few things in my life that I have now decided to speak up about because someone else is going through it too and they need to know it is not just them. They are not alone.
Who is the book based off of and who is Journee?
BC is based on things that I have seen and/or experienced throughout my life with a bit of fiction thrown in. It is a combination of me, my family, my friends, co-workers, strangers, and Journee is all of those people wrapped up into one.
Are you planning on doing another Canvas book?
Absolutely! I feel as though it left off asking to be continued. I plan on at least 2 more BC books with one being released in 2019 maybe but before then; I am actually doing a director’s cut version if you will of BC and adding in the poems that I had initially taken out plus adding in some new poetry and going a little deeper into Journee’s story.
Where to buy the book?
It is available on my website (only place autographed copies are available), on Blurb.com, and soon to be available on Amazon.
I’m trying to get my life together lol and no be so all over the place. I have my website FINALLY! Yay me! My book and future books have a permanent home there. So now here you will get all the updates, my POTM (poem of the month), behind the scene/meaning of my(books, projects, and poems) project info and etc. I also plan on giving my thoughts(aka reviews) on books that I will be reading throughout the year (mostly poetry) so there will be at least once a month. As of this very moment, with the release of v.2 of Black Canvas coming up I’m trying to work out the details of something for those who subscribe to my site, sort of like a referral code thing that after x amount of people use their specific code they will end up getting my book for free (plus the cost of shipping) and other things along the way… I also wanna do some book hauls. So if you have any books that you suggest I get please let me know in the comments…
