A Peace of Me: A Collection of Poetry by Deneale K. McElhaney- Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I ask my husband would it be ok to review my own book, and feature it on my blog, and he said how else am I going to get the word out about it?
So here I am telling you about my first book, which was published on May 18, 2016. The book is a variety of poems, written over the years of my life. Poetry, is how I cope.
My editor is Dorothy F. Shaw, and originally I had only gone to Dorothy about details on publishing, and had ask her to write a review to be featured within my book. She wanted to know more. Once, I told her everything, she changed my mind, and introduced me to a whole new way of life, and saved me well over three hundred plus dollars.
Dorothy also taught me that my writing was not yet at its perfection, and showed me my mistakes. I was enlightened through this, but also embarrassed. Some things I didn’t changed, because I felt the slang needed to stay in a few of my poems, but I won’t say that Dorothy didn’t try to convince me otherwise.
Through publishing this, my first book, I was enlightened and learned a lot. I couldn’t have done it without Dorothy and Sidda Lee Rain, who designed my very beautiful cover. And trust me, she offered me several examples, and it was a rough decision. Those two women taught me some amazing things, and were there for me every step of the way.
“A Peace of Me” received one review as of July 25, 2016, and it was a five star review by: Marianne Spitzer, who is also another Author. In her review, she mentions that I write from the soul. By the way, thank you Marianne for your review!
My poems do in fact come from the soul. In fact, there is a dedication with the book to my Mother, with her photo. That very poem was read at her funeral.
My favorite poem from my own collection, has always been, “Sing to me Daddy” and “Should we cut the Cheese.”
I do hope that you would give my book a look see, and check it out for yourself. Personally, I am a bit conceited, but I too feel it is a five star read, but I wrote it. LOL Originally it would not have been a five star read, but thankfully Dorothy and Sidda corrected my fumble and made a nice recovery for the touchdown. Now the book is perfection! Check it out for yourself and see!
Thank you for your interest in my book! I do hope you will consider buying it, and supporting me in my further endeavors.
