Publishing: My first anthology
I figured I would finally share what I've been raging about since last week. So here it is. The long awaited first anthology of my poetry and photography. This piece is called "naked as we came" and it's now available in paperback in colour!
I cannot believe this. I cannot believe this is happening. It's not a big deal, I mean, to me it is, but objectively speaking, I am self publishing my books which any person out there could do with their own writing, no matter what genre.
But I still feel proud of myself. This is a thing that I did. This is what I created. And nobody can take it away from me. So I'm celebrating my first self-published book and will shamelessly be proud of myself as if I was discovered. And not hiding how excited I am to have it in my hands and actually physically feel my writing. This is insane.
Unfortunately self-publishing means it will not be available in local bookstores or anything. But this is still great as I am publishing with Blurb and they ship worldwide so I hope all of you are indeed able to have access to it! You'll find a preview of the first 15 pages of the book as well. It will be available in colour (because of the photographs). If you decide to buy it and receive it and read it, please give me your feedback and maybe tweet me a picture with it for me on Twitter!
Thank you all for being so supportive of my writing, whether that is on Wattpad or on my blog. I feel so lucky and grateful each day to hear from readers that I touched their hearts with some syllables. And this is something I will never stop trying.
Until then - stay groovy,
