Finally!! Here it is! My First Published Book and I am bawling out my eyes and smiling at the same time.

Out of the silent breath

I feel a deep sense of release. I don’t know how to express my thoughts. It’s been a climb and sometimes a dip, but I knew that one day, I will arrive at this juncture.

Except I sit with you over a cup of tea, maybe only then will you really understand my journey – one day, I shall speak of these things.

To all those who have supported me to this point, I remain ever grateful. You have no idea what your friendship means to me and how far it’s taken me.

I present to you – even though some of you had a sneak cover peek, it was tweaked a bit – my poetry book. I laughed writing some, I bled writing some, I sighed writing some and I cried writing some.

It’s all Glory to Him. He made it possible.

It’s available on Amazon-Kindle and Smashwords and it will be an utmost delight if even only one person buys it.

I have also set it up at both ends of my sidebar as a source of motivation.

Now let me go and finish working on a compilation of the short stories that I hope to publish in June.

My thanks and utmost regards.

Remain blessed.

  7. Congratulations, Dear Jacqueline! If I were a goose (aside from being naturally silly πŸ˜‰ ) I’d be flying in formation with you at point, honking joyfully with the flock! Keep up the great work. Honk!!


      1. I don’t think there is a higher plane you can go to when you complete and publish your words for the world. πŸ˜‰ But you are right, it should wax. #LoveandInk ❀


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
