I am delighted to announce the publication of my second poetry collection, Chemotherapy for the Soul, now available from Canadian publisher, Fowlpox Press. What a wonderful way to start 2017!
This collection is different from my first chapbook, A Model Archaeologist, which was often humorous in tone. Chemotherapy for the Soul deals with darker themes including mental illness, dysfunctional family relationships and depression.
Thanks to my publisher, Virgil Kay, for this fantastic opportunity to be published again and to my lovely husband, Joseph Robert, for proofing the poems before they went to print.
You can get yourself a copy as follows:
As a free PDF flipbook
A paperback or hardback book from Peecho (€3.90 soft cover/ €10.70 hard cover).
Thanks, dear readers!
About Leilanie Stewart
Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry.
In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.

I am sharing with you news from fellow poet Leilanie Stewart who begins her publishing journey with the release of her second volume of poetic works. Indeed a wonderful way to kick off 2017.
Please share this news through your own connections and followers. The discovery of literary talents is as much a part of the creative arts as publishing our own. I’m sure Leilanie would greatly appreciate your support!
Thank you for sharing my latest collection with your readers, Don! Indeed, spreading the word is helpful, often essential, especially for Indie writers. I’m really grateful! Hugs from over here in Northern Ireland – Leilanie 🌺
They’re very good. Thanks. At the moment, having just failed an exam, I want to kill somebody. These poems did it for me.
Thanks for reading them, Linda! Good luck with your next exam if you’re taking it again. Hope my poems were an interesting read for you 😁
All good Leilanie – I will take a good close look in the next week or so and provide a review for you… With Best Wishes – let’s hope it all takes off big time for you… x
Thanks Scott, lovely of you to send such kind wishes! Congrats on all your poetry success too with your website 🌞
