Love Me Anyway is free in the Kindle store this weekend!
Have you ever read a book written in poetry? In my sixteen years of plundering the library shelves for anything and everything of interest that I hadn't read yet (when you go to the same library for several years, you have a chance to read most of the books on any given shelf) I've found some interesting books that have influenced my writing. One such book, (and since I have read several others) was written as poetry. POETRY! It blew my mind that anyone in this modern day and age could write one huge poem and turn it into a book, even though the idea stretches way back to the times of the Ancient Greeks. I decided to try my hand at it, and even though I didn't succeed as much as I had hoped, seeing as I never finished the entire book, I gained a greater appreciation for poets. One of my e-books is available for free this weekend (Feb. 9th & 10th) in the Amazon Kindle store--it's written in free verse, and I thought you might like it, especially since Valentine's Day is coming up soon. What better time to dwell on relationships and the marks, both good and bad, they can leave on our lives? "Love Me Anyway" is a little off the beaten track, so if you get a free copy and read it, let me know what you think. :-) If you like it, feel free to leave a review on Amazon for others to see.
Your Story Dies With You
Your Story Dies With You. It's rather self-explanitory, but anyway, the idea is that every person on this earth (that's right, every last one of us) has a story to tell, and it should be told before it's too late. For thousands of years, storytelling has been a central part of how humans have communicated--stories have been passed down through generations, sharing knowledge, family history, and the odd tale with a moral that was forgotten years ago. Everyone has a story to tell, and you should tell it, now while you have the chance, because your story dies with you.
