One of the fabulous bloggers I follow is publishing a poetry book!
I don’t read a ton of poetry, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate it. This author, Amie, consistently posts beautiful, lyrical works, so I am eagerly looking forward to her new poetry book! Today I get to share the cover with you (and guys, it’s GORGEOUS) and a little info about the book.
Without further ado…
Fifteen by Amie Woleslagle
About the book
Author: Amie Woleslagle
Blurb: You’re not the only person who struggles with mental health issues, not the only person with demons floating in your mind. Amie Woleslagle wrote Fifteen because she deals with them as well. Not to fix your pain, but to reach out and hold your hand. To remind you that you are not alone, to ask you to stay and make the world a better place. Because the world will never be the same without you and your unique take on life. Fifteen is a book of poems crafted from one teenager dealing with mental health issues to another teenager in the same place. It walks through the battle of pretending to be okay, of having people you thought were trustworthy shatter your heart, and the battle of not giving in when your brain has given up. Fifteen covers true friendships, embracing joy, self acceptance, and living your faith while struggling with mental illness, all the while showing that, in the end, flowers will bloom in the ashes of your pain.
You can pre-order the ebook through Amazon or the paperback through Etsy. The author is also sending out a packet of related swag to anyone who uploads a copy of their pre-order receipt here (I think I’m most excited about the sticker, but that may be my inner child)!
About the author
Amie is a suburban cowgirl with a penchant for words.
What started as a coping mechanism quickly became a burning passion and a desire to help others with the same challenges she faces. Battling with physical and mental health issues, she is passionate about showing through her stories and poetry that in the darkest night, the stars shine the brightest.
Amie loves to run barefoot through southern fields, grow corn, blog, act, film YouTube videos, play music filled with dynamics, and sing at the top of her lungs when no one’s listening. All the while, she babies to her dog and rabbit, and gasps whenever a new idea floats into her head.
I love the flowers on this cover so much. They’re so bright and beautiful, and while the brightness might contrast with some of the themes inside the book, they symbolize the “beauty from ashes” motif. I have a feeling this won’t be the easiest book I read this year, but I am so looking forward to it! Fifteen releases in October.
What do you think of the book cover, Readers?
Until the next chapter,
