So I am a strong online presence, so very few social media outlets that I do not have some useage of. It makes sense for me to set up a patreon to see if I can use my art to support myself.
You want to see stuff no one else does? Want to support my art, my poetry and my dreams? Come be my Patreon!
I am blessed to be friends with so many wonderful writers. Occasionally I can even get the chance to read their books first. This was one of those times.
Immortal by Deedra Mosley will be releasing on Amazon June 19th. It is an incredible poetic journey filled with prose and short poems. Lovely art illustrates the book giving the journey a more comfortable feel.
I am picky about poetry. I don’t always like the more prose style pieces, but I really enjoyed these.
It is in pre-order right now… Go ahead and get it. You won’t be sorry.
You can get it here.
Fighting the mental gremlins mean that even though I feel inadequate, I keep going. For me this often means writing, even if I feel like it is not something anyone wants to read. I have been sharing my poetry more lately on my Instagram. My reason? I am getting the reactions there. It makes me feel like I am pimping out my soul to ask for reactions, but I end up using the positive feedback to boost myself in the fight against the voice in the back of my head… You know that voice… The one that tells me how awful I am, how awful my writing and art is.
I have been avoiding any posting of opinions lately, mostly because I have been feeling less than qualified to have opinions. Much less speak them. What that means is that I have been hiding behind my poetry a lot more lately. I finished and published Music For The Soul. I am about thirty poems into the next volume (Poetry Kisses). I am also looking into helping to promote other authors through my blog. (Which would give me more to post here as well as help with promoting my fellow writers.)
See, I firmly believe that as a writer, I should be helping other writers. I am not in competition with anyone, and the world can only benefit from others who are writing. Lately, I have been seeing controversy over trademarks in the writing world (specifically the romance genre…) I watched horrified that it was even a consideration. How is a single word causing so much trouble.
So I have been watching that and keeping my opinions to myself.
I will be trying to post more information as I receive it about the promoting.
Did you write? Feel free to share!
Ok. So I think that I have separated pattimouse from my other stuff . I will continue to discuss my poetry and kid’s stuff here. I will continue with the posts about life and spiritual things (including tarot readings) here . However anything related to Serena or the publishing I have been setting up to do, or the crafting I do, will be oon my other blog. Serenitystudioscraftingandpublishinggroup.wordpress.com
Please don’t hesitate to follow, as I will be updating both frequently . I think that this will result in better posts .
