Cover reveal for Follow That Dream

My new poetry chapbook, Follow That Dream, will be published on August 24 by Great Minds Think Aloud Publishing, an independent press. This book was originally published nearly 20 years ago under the title Take My Hand. At that time, I signed with a vanity press to publish this chapbook. It has since gone out of print. I have edited and revised the poems in the original book for this new edition. Also, while I originally dedicated Take My Hand to my grandmother, in addition to two other people, that has changed this time around. I will be dedicating my next poetry book to the memory of both of my grandmothers. I just wanted both of my grandmothers to be honored with one poetry book. This one honors two friends I knew at a hospital I stayed at in New York.

Here is the cover for Follow That Dream. Many thanks to Kitty Bullard for her amazing work in creating this beautiful cover! Some of the poems in this book are fantasy and there's also one of a unicorn, so I felt that should be reflected in the cover image, instead of the poems of being a burn survivor going through several reconstruction surgeries at different hospitals. LOL

Blurb: “Follow that dream.” Take a few moments to read poems meant to seek refuge from the harsh realities of life, from pain, confusion and loneliness. Allow these poems to take you on a journey of wherever your imagination may lead you. The poems in this book share coming-of-age struggles and the fantasies created in order to offer a temporary escape from the real world.

Watch for the release of Follow That Dream on August 24th!
