Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women is out!

To the readers: A stunning poetry anthology. From its gorgeous pages, pain driven away by healing. Souls who endured, fought, and won. Some of them still waiting to win. Empowerment. We all need it. The life of women. We all need to read it.

To the authors: It was an honor and a pleasure to edit and curate this anthology. Your poetry showed me the way to your souls. For that I will be forever grateful. In my darkest moments, I will think about how each and one of you fought. Your fight became my candle to a better tomorrow. I’ll take my broken heart and mend it because you showed me how.

To the entire team who worked on this anthology:  Ingrid Wilson of Experiments in Fiction, thank you for working on this book and for publishing it. Nick Reeves, gratitude for the gorgeous cover art, and editing expertise. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with both of you.

Yesterday, Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women was running #4 in Amazon Hot New Releases [category: anthology].

Please spread the word. Help us to get these talented and brave authors to #1. They deserve it. You will not regret reading their words.

Amazon description:

Award-winning authors, Pushcart nominees, emerging poets, voices of women and men, come to the fore in this stunning, powerful, and unique anthology. These poems testify both to the challenges that women face in our society, and to their power to overcome them.

We all can benefit from the experiences so beautifully evoked in this book. We can all come together to emerge triumphant from pain.

      1. Gabriela, since the first day I read one of your poems I was taken aback by the beauty, the passion and the unique power of your work. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent in your blog.
        Thank you as well for letting me know about the ‘likes’ issue. I’ve been having problems with the comments section of my blog ever since I changed plan from Wrodpress, this is probably the reason you cannot give likes to the posts.

      2. Blanca, I am humbled by your praise. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
        When it comes to likes it could be you but it could be me too. I have problems with other sites too. I have to talk to WP again.

Number one on Amazon, so happy for Ingrid, Nick Reeves, and all the talented poets who contributed and shared. I am celebrating ❤️🦋🌹💕💝🤗🤗🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉

    1. Thank you so much honeybun and congratulations to you too. Yes, we are number one on Amazon on both paperback and kindle. That pretty cool. Time to celebrate tomorrow.

      Sending love. Enjoy the rest of your day.

      1. You are very welcomed dear Button. I am thrilled for you and so grateful too. You have done a beautiful thing for many voices. I waited for it to hit number one before I put out my WordPress post today. I knew when I saw my delivery was stalled with my copies that should have been here this afternoon may not be here till Sunday. I am beyond blessed. So happy for Ingrid too. You gave all these poets a voice to express their pain and proudly show their old yet healed scars – thank you for this beautiful gift. Love ❤️ honeybun

  5. I Deeply and kindly thank you to be part of that experience. It is stressful, like all those first time. But i am grateful to see it through. I am very eager to read their stories. The coping, the mending, the light turned to gold.

    Thank you Gabriela, and Ingrid too, and all those women. See you tomorrow

  7. Many congratulations, dearest Gabriela…what a great news…so many amazing poets being a part of this one of a kind anthology…you made it happen…did you know, you’re simply amazing?…not only are you an incredible writer but you also are a beautiful & kind soul…supporting this poetry community with your love…this too is a project that’s filled with love & empowerment…I feel honoured, blessed & proud to known you…you’re an inspiration…

    Many congratulations to you, Ingrid & Nick and every single being involved in this sacred work…this book is sitting nicely in my shopping cart…I will be ordering it by the end of this weekend…

    1. Navin, my dearest, thank you from the bottom of my heart, for your wonderful comment. I am deeply grateful for your support. I feel honored and grateful to have you as a friend too.

      1. Navin, my dearest friend, I see you are trying to help me with the anthology on IG. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. All I can see is part of the notifications. IG blocked me. I cannot do anything. I cannot see my timeline, my feed, I cannot answer any comments or messages. It will get solved. It is because I did not give them my personal data. i open the IG without a FB account so I need to give them my data.

        Anyway, if you can help please do so. Only if you can. We are now #1. It is on my blog.
        Again, no pressures my dear friend. I hope your Sunday is going well.

        Sending love.

      2. You’re welcome, dearest Gabriela…I’ll be soon posting on IG…everyone should know about this great anthology…I had written a long message to you through IG msg…but it seems you weren’t able to read as IG has blocked you…IG asks for data to make sure the person is genuine (for the sake of authenticity) as there are active hackers on IG as well…just like on any other social media…I haven’t linked my IG handle to FB but I don’t any issues…I think you’re getting issues coz you haven’t given your data…it’s not due to lack of FB linking…I’ll drop you a mail what I wish to share…much love

      3. My dearest Navin, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your help. It means so much to me. I am really humbled by your kindness. You are one of my dearest friends and I will never forget your generosity.

        You are right. It is because I did not give them my data. I have to do that so I can access my account.

        Have a great week ahead. Looking forward to reading your email and thank you once again.

  8. Absolutely incredible news – congratulations to you and all those inspiring, empowering, talented contributors to this book of poems! 👏 🎉❤️

    Caz xxxx

    1. Thank you so much my dearest Jude. Sorry I wasn’t around lately. I had to rest.
      I hope you are well.
