Happy Belated Birthday, Whisperings!

October 15th marked the 1 year anniversary of the Whisperings Publication.  Within the year, I had 3 official readings, some guest readings, and a Kindle Publication.  It’s been a fun journey and I’m excited to pursue new adventures!

“Everyday someone is perched on the seat,
pen in hand, digging into the mind,
waiting to release
passions of time.”

Book Review Exchange

Whisperings CoverI hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July!  While writing reviews on Amazon, this idea popped into my head.  Anyone interested in having a Book Review Exchange?  I’ll give you a copy of my book, and you give me a copy of yours.  We both read the books and write a review on our blog and on Amazon.  My book Whisperings is available on paperback and on Kindle, so whichever you prefer, I can send it your way.

Personally, I prefer to read paperbacks because it’s hard for me to concentrate on long passages on the computer.  There’s also that comforting, nostalgic, and satisfactory feeling of flipping the pages of a book that you can’t get from an e-book.  However; that’s just me =)

If interested, let me know!  I look forward to reading your book.

Poetry in the Park

Yesterday afternoon, I attended a book launch party for my poet friend Rachelle Escamilla’s Imaginary Animal at San Benito County Historical Park.  It was a beautiful country day, warm and breezy, with a glimpse of the historical past.  The food was amazing and the poetry was touching.  Rachelle is an inspiring poet who writes from the heart.  Imaginary Animal takes you through both her and her family’s memories of the country life, her journey as a poet and what it means to be Mexican.

I had the opportunity and pleasure of starting off the poetry program by reading a few of my poems from Whisperings.  I settled on Forever Creating, The Love of My Life and Absolute Freedom.  It was the first time I read Absolute Freedom out loud but it seemed like the perfect Hollister crowd for a motorcycle poem.  Here is a photo from the event.

Other featured poets of the day included Samuel Ramos and my creative writing professor from San Jose State University, Alan Soldofsky.

My next poetry reading will be a smaller, more intimate setting on Saturday, July 18th and will focus on musical poetry.
