I was excited to find out today that my book of collected poems, Writing in Sand, is featured as a new book to be purchased on Writers of the Flathead website.
When I went to their Writers Conference in 2019, I spoke to one of the organizers of the event. She inspired me to publish my collected works into a book. She planted the idea seeds of Where and How, and I left that Conference with an actionable goal to finally get my book out to the public.
It took me nearly a year and a half to gather all my work of the last twenty five years into a single place and to re-write each poem. I found printed pages of my poems from my active years with the Great Rift Writers of eastern Idaho. I searched hard drives of three old computers, and I also found folders of my writing in my Dropbox online account. I started using the cloud storage account about fifteen years ago. It was most helpful because all my folders were labeled with dates.
If you’re looking for something new to read, I recommend looking through the titles of these Indie Authors. It’s always good to support local authors of the northwest USA.
