No, I didn't give birth to a child, but I have finally recognized the birth of my first book following a long labor of love. The title is For Everything There Is A Season and it is a collection of poetry. I'm enclosing my acknowledgement here for those who don't wish to purchase a copy of the book as I truly owe some of what I am to you here
For Everything There Is A Season has been a long time coming and the road leading to this point, where I now stand, has not been without its share of detours and potholes. As I look back across the path I took in the course of those many years to finally arrive at this destination I wish to acknowledge those who served both as the compass and light to direct my way. I’d like to acknowledge my family, both those borne of kin and blood and those borne of sweat and tears and the countless people who’ve read my words and believed that I had a gift to write. To my sweat and tears family, the poets at Passions in Poetry, thank you for giving my work a critical, yet gentle, eye and teaching me that family takes on many forms, that friendship bears all, and that writing comes from the heart. Most of what I have learned about poetry I owe to you.
Last, but certainly not least, I would like to acknowledge the journals: Midwifery Today, Our Journey, Love’s Chance, The Aurorean, A Writers Choice, Gotta Write Litmag, Penncom, Entropic Desires, The Complete Nurse, Sonnetto Poesia and
Ink Blotter. Thank you for showing an interest in my work and publishing my poetry in your journals.
Thank you dear friends! Here is a link to a page where you can see or order the book. I haven't ordered any copies yet as I'm awaiting my author copies to arive first.
I am nothing special...and my name will soon be forgotten,but I've loved another with all my heart and soul,and to me,this has always been enough.~N.S
