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

paperback or hardback book from Peecho (€3.90 soft cover/ €10.70 hard cover).

Thanks, dear readers!

    Hello friends.

    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.
