Poetry Book Cover Versions of the Self

Versions of the Self is Now Available! #Kindle and Hard Copy

Wow! My second book Versions of the Self is now live! Yes, it’s officially published!

(Jumping up and down here) –>> Working off calories + celebrating the launch = win win!

Thank you all for your patience while I fell off the side of the Earth discreetly exited the blogging world to finish working on the book. The time away was spent proofreading, formatting, and overall nitpicking, combined with a touch of anxiety, as I prepped the new poetry book for your eyes.

I do hope you enjoy the book! It is available both in Kindle and hard copy formats. I know for poetry books many readers prefer the paper version that they can open at their leisure to any page. Whichever version you decide on, please know I appreciate your support so much!

Pick up your copy of Versions of the Self now at:

Hard copy book is available at CreateSpace

About Versions of the Self

This is my second poetry book, and I am so proud of it! It is full of inspirational, original poems that offer a custom spin on the world. Here is the synopsis:

 Imagine a shift to the way you see the world that arises through poetic narration.

Imagine the world, at its base level, is a collection of selves. These selves collide, disperse, intermingle, and share themselves in lines of free verse. Such is the premise of Versions of the Self, poetry that assumes multiple types of selves exist and relate in ways that alter them. Each of the eight chapters looks at a different type of self, including the singular “I” and romantic interactions. These unique 80 poems definitely color themselves outside of the lines.

If you read the poetry book, I would love it if share an honest review of it at Amazon and/or GoodReads. Reviews are very helpful for any author as a way to both receive feedback from readers and to generate additional interest in the book. TY!

Thank you to all of the readers and supporters who have helped me through this amazingly creative period of my life! Let’s keep writing, sharing, and smiling ♥

Love Christy

      Thank you, Balroop, and, indeed, I was taking a blogging break to finish the book. Days flew by! I appreciate your note too about the Google+ share; were you able to share it after I deleted that image that was causing the issues? Also, what do you think about an interview over at your site? Would that be a possibility? Thank you for the kind message here, my friend! Love and hugs

        I came over again to share but this time one of the images on the side showed up and I didn’t want to share without the actual cover of the book. Sure, you are most welcome for an interview. I would look forward to that. 🙂

    I tried to share it with Google but it is not showing the right image. Please remove the image in the comments so that your book cover shows in the google window. I will come back to share it. Thanks.

          Thanks Mark 🙂 Would you mind putting a review up on Amazon when you’re done the read? No rush and it needn’t be long. I appreciate you, have I told you that lately?! ❤

          Yes, some of it is difficult to read back because it is quite raw. It was healing, for sure, and I am so thankful I was able to work through things with the poetry. Thank you for understand that, C. It means a lot to me.

    Congratulations Christy. I contemplated the first poem: Serenade. There were so many excellent lines like — “This is but one moment, in one day, in the Midst of a path called alive.”

    As I read the poem, it brought to mind Emerson’s line: “No one suspects the days to be gods.”

    I’m looking forward to more contemplative reading.
