My poetry book Woman: Splendor and Sorrow was reviewed in Seattle Book Review.
You can read the review in the link below.
Here are several snippets:
“Woman: Splendor and Sorrow: | Love Poems and Poetic Prose, written by Gabriela Marie Milton, is a brilliant arabesque comprised of authentic artistic stanzas and poetic prose penned the multifaceted emotive lines that highlighted the dichotomous complexities of womanhood in history and modernity…
Milton detailed the stark dualities of feminine divinity hidden within seemingly everyday occurrences via twenty-five pieces of poetic prose at the end of the book. The prose contrasted aching souls, aging, fear of the unknown, mysterious characters, and a genuine penchant for feeling the essence of life in all experiences, whether negative or positive outcomes.
Poetic collages adorned with emotional ephemera captured raw femininity dovetailed within the life cycles of womanhood; enmeshed in struggles, trials, and tribulations were depicted with fortitude and honor that chronicled the beautifully gritty feminine experience…”

Congratulations. My book is finished and the editing has started X5 of tightening up the wording, phrases and to make weak sentences stronger. The grammar as well. I will finish the editing once I am satisfied that i cannot find errors then I will submit it to a professional editor. Be well my friend and it is nice to see your progress happening.
Thank you so much Joseph. I am so glad to hear the book is moving along. It makes me happy. Please keep me updated. I cannot wait to read it.

Wow Diana, this is an incredible review and does justice to your work! I couldn’t agree with them more as I continue to be intrigued and touched as I read each piece. Joni said it well; “you will read it fast and then again slow line by line” in so many words. You work inspires me to break out of the box in my writing which is a gift. Congratulations! 💖
Cindy, sweetheart, are you sure that you meant you comment on this post? Diana is not here. Perhaps this is a comment for one of Diana’s posts.
