Emerald Heart ~ cross-over creative venture

Hey guys, it's been quite a while, again..
..and I don't even have anything miniature-ish but something else I've been inspired to do, I published my first book! In paperback & ebook and I'll officially launch it on the 17th, but I really want to share it somewhere already ;). UPDATE: you can now read it for FREE in exchange for an honest review if you'd like, see the second imag.

It's a collection of poems I wrote the past years that at some point I felt deserved to be seen and enjoyed by others, so I've then figured out a way to do that - KDP Selfpublishing. I've made it available in paperback and Kindle/ebook edition (but you don't need a Kindle to read it).

Quite scary to be honest since it's not just a book about anything (exciting enough), it actually doesn't get much more personal than this: it's my heart & soul I'm sharing with the world. But I am so proud of the result 😊 ! I've designed the cover myself which was a lot of fun already and because I wanted my own ISBN I needed a publishing company - luckily this only requires having a name and logo - this meant móre designing which I love to do anyway.


I am really excited and happy with the overall result. I have no idea if any of you who (still) come here would even be interested in something like this, but I felt like sharing it for whoever might be.

Here's 2 images of the back of the book followed by a few samples to get an idea. Those 7 color images are just dressed-up samples of what are actually longer poems and not what it looks like in the book, I've also included a few photo's of sections of pages of the actual book below that.

    1. Thank you Polly! Haha, I get that, me neither ;). I don't think mine would even be considered proper poetry, but it's about being enjoyed and coming from a non-poetry fan your compliment therefore means a lot, thank you so much!!
