Woman: Splendor and Sorrow – in the top 20 new release bestsellers for poetry by women #poetry collection #poetry by women #poems

My publisher Brian Geiger informed me that yesterday August 2 my poetry collection Woman: Splendor and Sorrow was in the top 20 new release bestsellers for poetry by women. Number 19 Louise Glück who won the 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature. Running right behind her. Humbled beyond words.

Special thanks to everyone who bought my new book. At the same time special thanks to Brian who worked so hard on the publication of the book.

From Brian’s announcement:

“A poem in itself is a marvelous thing, but a collection of poetry is something else entirely — like the broader beauty of an arabesque, it’s felt more than seen. Perhaps this is what T.S. Elliot meant when he said genuine poetry communicates before it’s understood. The nebulous beauty of art, the feelings it stirs …”

    1. John, thank you so much. I have to tell you I am thrilled that you read my blog.

      1. Yes, we do. And I miss your pictures so much. I am sure you know that Instagram needs a good connection for one to be able to read and post. I have been traveling and I stay on AT&T. I do not log on to any other networks. Since I have a VPN I probably should.
        Anyway, I will be back on Instagram next week. Enjoy the rest of your day John and thank you again for your support.

    1. Thank you so much Dave. It’s cool. But it’s even cooler that Louise Glück who won the 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature is number 19. I am right behind her. And i had no idea until my publisher informed me.

      Have a great Dave and thank you for your support.

      1. Thank you for you kind words Bo.
        I know. I remember one time when I was vacationing in Hawaii and I knew mama was not well. I did not cry but the beauty around me left me cold. Nothing helped. I did not care about anything. All I wanted was to be with mama. It’s hard. But you are strong baby. Try to enjoy. You can do it. You are visiting one of the most beautiful place on earth. Let the sunshine in your life.
        Love you Bo.
