Summer Magic Has Gone Live!

Summer Magic_

Exciting news here today! My little volume of verse (also called a “chapbook”) has gone live on Amazon.com today. Wow. Two books live in less than a month and a half. I’m feeling pretty good right now, for sure. 

Summer Magic is a 44-page collection of seventeen poems. Part One of the book is called Mac At Ten, and features the main male character from my novel, Wake-Robin Ridge, as a little boy, camping in his beloved Blue Ridge Mountains, where he sees the magic in all that nature has to offer. From tales around the campfire to watching the sunrise, he knows instinctively that he is in a special place, and he throws himself into the pleasure of it all, with reckless abandon.

Part Two concerns itself with a variety of topics…whatever was on my mind on any given day, pretty much. Life, death, summer and autumn, betrayal and abiding love. 

I thought this little book would be the perfect opportunity to learn more about Kindle’s new Cover Creator, and I will be doing a post on that another day, as part of my series on self-publishing. I think it probably worked well enough for this project, but I’m not trading in my graphic designer yet, by any means.

Hope some of you will enjoy Summer Magic. I had a wonderful time writing it, and am already at work on another collection of poetry.

    • Hi, Geraldine! Hope you enjoy the book. I’m a hopeless romantic, I’m afraid, in spite of my penchant for Urban Fantasy. I really like the little magic moments in life. And I’m pretty sure I stopped by your blog the other day, and saw some things that interested me. I made a note somewhere to go back and look more closely. I will definitely do that. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. PS: FYI, I can’t actually click through to your blog, the window opens but it just stays blank. I’m commenting via the Reader on WP. Other readers might be having the same issue as this has happened the last couple of times I tried to visit.

    • I haven’t had anyone say they were having trouble, but I will certainly check. Thanks for alerting me. Your posts show up here on the blog, as they normally would, but I sure don’t want you to not be able to visit my actual pages. I’ll see what I can find out.
