At last, today is the day!


Well, today is the big day!  I’m finally joining the ranks of the 10% of people who say they’re going to publish a book and actually do.  I’m not entirely sure if those statistics are still accurate, but I did once read that, and it’s motivated me ever since to be one of few to do it.

I love a good challenge, I always have and I always will.  And if you love a good poetry book, feel free to peruse mine.   It’s all about passion, desire, and love, which are just about the best subjects around, don’t you think?

I really have no idea what to expect since this is my first time releasing a book, but I’m quite excited to see what happens.  I think I’m likely to pee my pants if anyone actually decides to leave me a rave review this month.  Lol…  Anyway, happy reading if you do choose to get yourself a copy.  I’ll be overjoyed, to say the least, if you do.  😉

        1. Oh I’m shaking my head right now because I just left you a comment and somehow the whole thing was erased instead of sending. Lol… So here I go, I’ll try again. 😉
          I’m excited that you’ve already read some of my book and even picked out an initial favorite! I haven’t read my older poems in such a long time, so I had to look up “Shall We” and I have to agree I really love that one too. Some things never change and that one still kinda sums me up in so many ways.
          And you know I can’t promise you that you won’t get teary-eyed when you read it because isn’t that what a good book is supposed to do? Lol… 😉
          My favorite poem of yours so far is Trusting the Beginning because it made me ponder the deeper meaning and reflect on my own beliefs. You always have a way of doing that with your writing, which really draws me in a captures my attention. I think I’ll likely finish your book tomorrow. I read slower when it comes to poetry because I like to pause and take every word in.
          Ok, I’m gonna hit send now! This time it better go! Lol… 😉

          1. Miss Magnetic ~M,
            lol…it made it safely to me this time. And I am so glad:)
            Since your book is good and I can expect to be teary-eyed, you won’t think less of me, because it will be your fault. lol
            Trusting the beginning kinda shook me, when I first ponder that I trusted my mother as my mother. I do not remember the hospital I was born in. That is a whole story! That is a sit down over breakfast discussion. I am glad it made you ponder. I tend to want to leave room for others interpretation. I sometime fall short of that. I really appreciate you. Your kindness shall never be forgotten.

            1. Well I’m glad it finally did! Lol… Oh go ahead and cry, did you know that tears are actually very good for your skin? 😉 And I agree, that poem of yours is a whole story, probably a whole day discussion. Lol… I appreciate you as well, my face is always full of smiles whenever I see a message from you. Have a happy day! 🙂

  1. Congratulations Michelle!
    As I finished reading your most recent poem, I looked down on the page and SURPRISE = a SUCCESS story.
    I’ve been away from writing most days the past few months thus I had no idea.
    Best of Luck on sales.
    I love reading your poetry. 🙂

      1. Hi Michelle.
        It’s mid-week already.
        Mother Nature continues to send her fury.

        I wanted to tell you I ordered your book this morn. It will arrive by March 28th.
        I’m certain I’ll be enjoying some quality reading.
        It’s wonderful to attain your goals.
        Congrats again! 🙂

        1. Aww… that’s so kind of you. I really hope you like it. Seems like everyone is getting snow this year except for Wisconsin! Lol… And we usually get more than most! 😉

  2. Your paperback book arrived today and I am in Awe!! I’ve never had a book dedicated to me, giggling.I especially enjoyed Him…and The Old Married Couple (reminded me of Susan and I). I am so proud of you Michelle! I was the first to review your book. 😊💛

    1. Awww…. Walt, you just made my whole day, month, year! I guess I really am going to have to dedicate a book to you now, just for being so darn sweet. I wrestled with Him… In fact, it was rewritten about a dozen times. Almost gave up at one point. Lol… Glad you enjoyed it. Your support means the world to me. Thank you so so much. 😉 ❤️


    1. Thanks Mariaty… it just takes a bit of perseverance I guess, but not at all impossible. If you ever need any help, just let me know and I can at least fill you in on all the things one shouldn’t do. Lol… I’m hoping the next time around goes a bit smoother. 😉
