Unbridled Poetry?

In Collaboration with Collin

A Dog's Life? (Stories of me and him)

I was recently contacted by a fellow blogger Jacqueline Oby-Ikoch with a suggestion that we promote each others books. She, and other Indie authors, appreciates that the most difficult part of producing a book is the marketing. Writing a book is challenging, and editing it ready for publishing is even more  challenging… but nobody will ever buy a book that they do not know exists! Marketing can be very expensive, or simply persistent work on the part of the author, so an opportunity to present to a different Blogging “audience” is welcomed. The following link goes to an introduction to my “Just Thinking” book which was recently featured on  Jacqueline’s Blog –

Now allow me to introduce Jacqueline Oby-Ikoch’s book “Unbridled” with the text provided to me by Jacqueline.

Unbridled, the second poetry collection by Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha was released on 3rd August 2017.

Unbridled is written for souls hurting…

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha

I began reading poetry back when I was about 8.  I had a certain type I liked – “free verse” they called it.  It didn’t rhyme, it didn’t have meters and cadences.  What I considered poetry was the flowing words that would capture, break, open, touch (any or all) of your heart.  Grasping your soul in tight clenches so that your breath can’t even escape, for someone else has felt this same way that you have and put it together in a rhythm that no dance could ever accompany it.  The first book of poetry I had, my mom gave to me on a birthday.  I still have it.  I started writing poetry at the age of 10 and at the age of 12 had worn contests and had a public showing of my written words on display at a local mall.  I’m telling of this, because…

Weekend Tea Party Invitation

Here’s Your Invitation.

a cooking pot and twisted tales

Well there you go, with Daily Post sending out a prompt for tea, it seems they are in sync with me.

Y’all know that this girl here loves a good party even if it’s a virtual one, so consider this an invitation to the monthly blog party 🙂

These days I’ve reduced my coffee intake to just a cup of decaf in the mornings. For now, I am imbibing more of Chai Latte or Karak Chai, especially in the evenings when I kick back to read blogs and round up for the day. Drinking more coffee would only make my hyper active mind and insomnia worse because my mind has been consumed with thoughts of my book projects and how to make my second poetry book a success.

Let’s get together for tea and scones this weekend.

Party Time: Saturday 29th – Sunday 30th July

Look forward to seeing you.

An absolutely wonderful read. Are you Joan?

Sweet aroma

calms the child

For months, Joan’s house had been demanding more in upkeep than she could afford.  The walls seemed to move in on her each day.  She was tired of the old carpet.  She looked at everything about it with a jaundiced eye. Everything about it was getting on her nerves.  Joan had prayed, nagged, and finagled all the ways she knew to get the new house.  It was sooo dreamy and had 600 more square feet than they one she now lived in.

She would have a difficult time paying the extra monthly payment for the new house, but she knew God was a prayer answer-er!  So she diligently prayed that something would happen to make the new place possible.  She kept her faith in the Lord knowing he could make it happen.  She prayed effectually and fervently just like the Bible said to do.

Two years later Joan was still…
