Exciting News!

My friends, I have some exciting news.  The Williams County Writers Group has published an anthology of work by northwest Ohio area writers. It is a collection of short stories, poetry, and non-fiction contributed by thirty-three area writers. Ten of my poems are included in the anthology! 

The book is called Musings 2013 and is available for purchase through Amazon. Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Williams County Writers Group and the Williams County Public Libraries.

I want to say a special thank you to all of you who have been so supportive by visiting and commenting on my blog.  I love the process of writing poems and would write them whether anyone ever read them or not, but I also love hearing from those who have read them.  It is always interesting to learn how others see the words I write and to find out what their perspectives are as to how my poems affect them.

The Williams County Writers Group is holding a book signing at the library this coming Monday.  I'm looking forward to meeting the others who have contributed to this anthology.  I'm sure it will be fun.  I know some of them already, but there are many of them I haven't yet met.  That is a picture of my county's courthouse on the cover of the book.

  2. Congratulations, Daisy! And I apologize for not stopping by in such a long time. I just realized/remembered the other day that you don't write on your other blog, and I'd forgotten to add this new one to my Blog Roll List! Hopefully, I'll be a better blog friend again now! :)

  26. Hi Daisy, happened to notice your callsign and profile at Bananaz's place and busybody over.
    Wow! I am impressed you write poetry. We had to study Shakespeare when in school...believe it or not, and hated Macbeth, ha ha...but somehow managed to pass the exam, but just by a hair above the Equator.
    I always admire as well appreciate people who write books, poetry....
    I used to read lots of books before, this before Bill Gates and Steve Jobs changed my hobby, ha ha ha.

    Rudyard Kipling, Han Su Yin of 'Love is a many splendored thing' fame, Hemingway, Pearl S. Buck were some of the authors I loved reading.
    Congratulations on your achievements. Outstanding!
    You have fun and keep a song in your heart.
    Keep well,
    Lee.
    ps, who's driving you? Ha ha. Loved that movie.
