Woman: Splendor and Sorrow by Gabriela Marie Milton just published #poetry collection #poems

My book Woman: Splendor and Sorrow is out!

My Dear Readers,

My book Woman: Splendor and Sorrow is out!

I am deeply grateful to my followers who have supported me. My gratitude to my publisher, Brian Geiger – Vita Brevis Press – for accepting my manuscript and making my dream come true.

Book marketing is exceedingly difficult for me because I write under a penname. As I pointed out in an interview when I publish: “There are no gettings together, no signing of books in bookstores, no flowers, no friends to buy a bunch of your books and start writing reviews.”

Yet I have you, my WP and my social media friends. You make my writing journey beautiful. You make my soul blossom with joy.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

From the back cover:

“Woman is a triumphant collection of poetry. Milton explores with sincerity and great craft the many faces of identity and womanhood. This is the sort of poetry collection that will resonate with any reader.”

writes Brian Geiger, editor of Vita Brevis Press

You can order the e-book and the paperback in the link below.

I am also grateful to Brian for featuring me on Vita Brevis Poet Spotlight a place where, if you wish, you can learn more about my publications, my awards, and you can read my most recent interview.

From the Spotlight:

An Interview with Gabriela Marie Milton

Gabriela Marie Milton is a poet of condition rather than profession. I wrote as much in the foreword to her collection of poetry, Passions, referring to the great Robert Graves’ suggestion that the art of poetry isn’t so much learned as it is lived. This is the first thing readers of Milton’s work will realize; this is poetry with soul.

What’s the Purpose of Poetry?

Gabriela Marie Milton: “My first impulse is to answer the creation of meanings. That which is not directly expressed impacts us differently than a simple narration. A table of contents informs us. It speaks to our reason. A poem takes us to the plans of our inner and outer worlds that lie beyond reasoning, such as for instance the oneiric plan. 

“Of course, great poetry was written during the Enlightenment period: a period characterized by the celebration of reason.

Thank you.

      1. Oh don’t worry dearest Button. With everything going on you have still been on my mind. So exceedingly happy for all the blessings God has bestowed upon my hard working friend. I am doing surprisingly well. Two more procedures in the next three weeks and then hopefully all will be well. I am going to pray for rest, inspiration and lots of great food and wine for your vacation. I will try not to devour your book. I must read and enjoy every word. I did devour the first book but of course have reread it many times. This book I will take my time the first time. Please try and rest dearest Button and enjoy the wonderful success you have worked so hard to achieve. Sending you so much love,
        Honeybun ❤️🤗😘🦋🌸🌺🌻🌷🌹🎂🎂💐💐💐💐💐🍷🍷🥰💕💕

      2. Honeybun, first I am so glad everything went great until now. I wish you good luck with the rest and I will keep praying and sending tons of love every minute. Please Take good care of yourself. Thank you so much for all the support with the book.

        “Please try and rest dearest Button and enjoy the wonderful success you have worked so hard to achieve. ” Oh, you are so sweet, thank you. I have been hearing the same thing since I got up 🙂 I probably should do it. Love you honeybun
        Sorry for any typos. My internet connection is going on and off.

      3. Please do Button. Go somewhere wonderful and enjoy your blessings for your hard work. If we don’t take time and just work without rest or surrounding yourself with love and beauty what is the point. Life is sitting quietly and looking at the beautiful world and just enjoying those pleasures and keeping them for yourself. I know you are driven as am I but you my beautiful Button really do need to rest, live and love.
        Your wonderful gift is on its way in the mail and I can’t wait. Can’t you take five days at least? Thank you for your sweet prayers they are working. 😘💕🤗❤️🦋🦋Love you,
