Final Day of Breathe. Breathe. In This Format: Its Journey and My Thoughts

Happy Halloween! I hope you’re enjoying your weekend. We are pumpkin carving, eating candy and fun foods, and going to a drive thru pumpkin glow tonight!

I’ve been writing since I was in junior high, maybe before, and pretty seriously since high school/college. That’s over 25 years! It was such a dream come true to have my debut collection of dark fiction and poetry called Breathe. Breathe. come to life with Unnerving publishers three years ago – but they flew by!

I’ve written so much more since then, much published already in various places, but a good bulk of it you’ll see starting next year. Having this published really gave me the catalyst to go further and stop putting my writing last. I will forever be grateful to the words on these pages for helping to heal me and allow me to grow as a person and a writer. Don’t be fooled by this cover for inside it’s dark, sometimes dreary, sprinkled with light and life, but also loss and darkness. The cover art is an ode to my story within “Dandelion Yellow,” which as I’m told, broke many a heart.

Until the end of the day Saturday (Oct 31) it’s marked down to .99c in e-book and just $6 paperback, and after that, this debut version will be gone from purchase. I’m not sure when I’ll bring it back! If you order a paperback and want it signed let me know and I’ll send you a signed insert.

I want to thank everyone who has supported my writing and this book, and those who keep doing it. Trust me you’re going to see BIG things from me in 2021! Publishing has given me some punches lately, but don’t think I was knocked down. Nothing is better for what life is in 2020 than some of the words on these pages – dark, deep, but with hope. And also, I’m proud it’s closing this chapter of its journey during domestic violence awareness month, since this book holds that issue close to it. I’d be honored if you’d breathe with me and buy a copy or share the word!

Thank you for being on this writing and reading journey with me!

To purchase on sale today only (Edit: looks like a few of the print only still available though e-book is gone), head to AMAZON and get it print.

You’ll also find a copy at several Barnes and Noble locations in Ohio and Florida (can be shipped from there or picked up if local) and Macs Backs on Coventry (independent bookstore near Cleveland, Ohio) if you’d like a print copy but can’t buy it today. Ask me for more info when interested.
