Well, I gathered all my courage and made my own first book on Blurb.com http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1155328

This book 'Rhyming Images - Where I shall live and die' (40 pages), is the first of a series of Rhyming Images books I was planning to make for a long time, but never had the guts to actually do it. So now I did.

I know Helen offered to go over my poems (thank you for your offer), but I didn't have her email so I've send the preview over to Balladeer, who was kind enough to take a peek and give me some suggestions, which I gratefully accepted.

Does that mean I can call myself a published poet now?

Love, Titia

Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

Congratulations!  

"If you want something done, ask a busy person," is a saying that certainly applies to you.  You're a person of many talents and a heart as big as our galaxy. How nice it is that you've kept Marge's memory alive in such a loving way.

God bless,
  Rae

Yes, this definitely puts you in the "published poet" of the loving names we can call you!

Congratulations, sweetheart! I know firsthand the trepidation of putting your baby out into the world first hand, but you did it!

I'm so very happy for, and proud of, you!

Congratulations, Titia!  Your book looks great!  Did I start something here?     I certainly started something for myself because my second one is there now.

Our postal authorities here are rather slack so it will be a few weeks before I get it.  

Well done!
Love
Helen
