I did a preview, sneak peek, of a cover I was working on for this upcoming poetry release, I’m doing this year. The original idea didn’t really fit for me, so I’ve changed it. The official ebook cover can be seen here! At a later date, the paperback edition of the cover will be shared. I always release first on ebook then later on in paperback.
Below is the one that was sneak-peeked. Either one is beautiful, but the one above feels right for this specific project more so. I don’t often change a cover after sharing it, but this poetry book is very special to me and I want to do it right.
This is one of the most beautiful poetry books that came into my life. I have many books on poetry from classics like Edgar Allen Poe or books on English poets, but wanting something more modern I came across this beautiful work. I felt the poems as if she wrote them knowing me since I was a child, knowing that these were her personal stories. I also enjoyed the drawings finding out later that she had done them herself.
I researched the poet long after flipping through the pages and found that she self-published this originally. It was later picked up by a publishing house. Being a self-published author on a few works and knowing eventually I’d self-publish my own book of poems I loved this information.
#1 New York Times bestseller Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity.
The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
