    How do you like Create Space? I’m toying with creating my own anthology … but just not sure how to start. Anyway — congratulations!

    • I like Createspace a lot. Their product is great, their distribution is smooth. My biggest dislike is the $100 minimum for payment- one needs to sell a lot of books before they release a cheque. (Unlike Smashwords and Bookbaby, for example, both of which release whatever you earned every quarter or monthly without minimums).

    Congrats. May you be a big success. god Bless, Barb

    • It’s poetry. Not sure ‘success’ is a word that goes along with that! 😉

        Sure it is. I under-estimated my book of poetry because of the stigma attached to poetry…complex, boring. If you can touch someone with emotion or they can relate to what you are saying, then that is something…not all poets can do. Simplistic poetry, that has no hidden meaning, is like a song we feel emotion when we hear it. Success in a large scale happens to a select few, but that doesn’t necessarily mean theirs is better. Keep it up. Great job! God Bless, Barb

      • In my high school English classes I do something called “Poetry Friday” which involves studying, reading, writing, and performing poetry each week, often with tea and cookies. In my evaluations, the kids say that it is the highlight of their week. Poetry offers and opportunity to connect to real emotion and understanding. If it’s complex and boring, they’re starting from the wrong place. Rap is poetry. Songs are poetry. A catchy ad on tv is poetry. One builds from that kind of accessible poetry until folks can find the connections in the complex stuff.

    Congratulations!!!!! What else can I say! I am going to read it and watch your process and hope it is better than you ever expected! I have a novel in the works and everyone keeps encouraging to my poems in a book. It makes me wonder if they’ve read my chapters and are trying to re-direct me or just like my poetry. LOL.

    • lol. So hard to interpret sometimes, isn’t it? 😉

      I put a lot of poetry into my first 2 novels- Greek epic style dactylichexameter and sonnets- very odd for a YA novel! They’re supposed to provide hints about what’s happening in the Mythic realm that the narrator doesn’t know about.

      This book is a little more free and breezy. Some of the best from 2011, just capturing moments.

      Good luck with your projects!

  5. How wonderful, Shawn! I look forward to reading it soon 🙂
