So I got the first one done yesterday.
Please do go take a look and let me know what you think.
Writing of any kind is often a growth thing. A ever expanding learning experience. With soul’s door I had better equipment and access to better ability for layout than I ever have.
So thusly, it is the poetry volume that is the best looking. I am now going back and redoing the layout for the previous volumes. Not that they looked bad… Just on the kindle the poetry tended to run together. I can fix that easily now. So for the next few days I will be releasing releasing as I finish them updates to the poetry volumes I have out.
I’m sick. And when I get sick, I get maudlin. I got a notice that I was getting a deposit from Amazon for the books that I have available. It is the biggest deposit yet, a whole $2.77. That amazes me. It is a sign that people are buying the books that I have written… Mostly poetry, but I have some children’s books and a novella (as Serena).
When I told my mother that I was published her first question was if I had made any money. At the time I stumbled with my answer because I had only made thirty some cents. The fact that I had made anything was a miracle to me, but I knew that would not be what she wanted to hear.
For me, publishing is only a way of being heard. Still, making enough from my writing to buy a drink…. Well it humbles me. Would I like to be able to pay the bills through it? Well of course. I am not stupid. I just choose to be thankful for the small things. How often does changing the perspective change the way something feels?
Small miracles lift up the downtrodden. I choose to see this as a small miracle, so that I am uplifted. What perspective can you change to adjust your view?
This is what’s out for all editions.
Will post for each as i finish them.

It seems as though I am running still
Trying to fight such a long gone foe,
That sometimes today is a haze.
Shouldn’t it make me stronger?
So why do I feel so weak?
So when can I rest?
When will it finally be over for me?
It seems as though
I am running still
From memories of so very long ago,
That it takes over me.
What did I lose to be who I am?
Was it worth it?
Can I ever escape those memories?
Should I try?
It seems as though
I am running still
Just to escape things from before,
And I wonder if I ever will.
Shattered and broken,
Afraid and uneasy.
So how do I survive yet another day?
there is a song for
each heart that has ever
touched themselves to mine.
playing in the theatre in
my often troubled mind.
Joy nor sadness truly reigns,
as heart rending is often queen.
faces with songs exist
long after emotion and name
have fallen prey to time.
such power these sounds have
to long after romance has died
still bring the heart to tears.
what allows another to see the moment
before it has come to be,
so well to write the words and notes
that will eternally haunt the mind
remembering pain and joy in the moment?
is the muse so cruel
that the songs
are but inspiration
and quick pen?
the moments caught and held
meant to entertain the masses
end up breaking the heart.
