About my poetry and artwork chapbooks, I work very hard to make sure that the material on my blog-poems, pictures, ect. is different from my published materials. There are exceptions, when several of you, my dear readers “like” a certain poem or two, I sometimes include those into my artist and poetry chapbooks-but I try to let you know of that fact. 99.5 % of what I publish is new to you.
I do that by maintaining this blog, but also keeping a private journal. Some of the journal poems got posted here-but not most and not all. And when they do I try not to include them in my books because I do not want you to feel cheated in any way.
Also, I could really use your help. If any of you have taken advantage of my free promo periods AND actually read any of my books, on the kindle or as a purchased paperback, I desperately need more reviews. Even if you bought a kindle book. Either way, even if it was a free download, amazon.com/kindle will allow you to review it. I’m trying to get as many reviews as I can, because I feel this may boost actual book sales in my favor. You should get a email from amazon.com asking you if you want to review one of my books if you downloaded it/ or bought it. If not please visit my Authors page: http://www.amazon.com/author/emilysturgill-and you should be able to simply click any of my books you have bought/ or downloaded and rate it on a 5 star scale. Then just write your thoughts a simple paragraph will do. I want honest reviews, I prefer positive reviews, but if you have a negative response that’s ok too. I’m just starting out as a self-published artist/author/poet. I know I have much to learn. I cannot even afford an editor. I do it all myself.
Eventually, I would like to attempt a book of fiction/short-stories. Right now, my concentration, is not the greatest. So I stick mostly to poems, if i feel brave i may attempt some prose.
I also encourage and highly welcome feedback on my blog. If you send me a comment there is a high likely-hood I will post it.
Thank you for reading my blog. I’m glad so many have subscribed so far-it’s almost a village-135 people so far. It means alot to me that you read my dribble-drabble-thought-puddles-of-poetry.
