Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women is a #1 Amazon Bestseller #poetry #poems

Dear Readers,

Yesterday, June 17 2022, Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women became a #1 Amazon bestseller! As your editor and curator and am deeply honored and excited. So are your publisher, Ingrid Wilson, and I suspect all authors who know about.

Does it say #1 and #2 in New Releases in Poetry Anthologies? That is because both editions of Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women the kindle edition, and the paperback were #1. However, you cannot have #1 twice in Hot New Releases, so we ended up #1 and #2. Taken separately you could see both editions were running #1.

I cannot tell you how much that means to me. It humbles me and it fills my heart with joy.

Yesterday evening we were #1 in Women’s Poetry category too.

Let’s keep this book a #1 bestseller for a while. Women’s lives are important. Let’s show everyone we believe that. Let’s walk the walk.

Please spread the word!

Always grateful to you.

    I loved the poems read at the party. Unfortunately, with no camera and microphone I couldn’t really participate, and I missed your reading. I ll be watching later on youtube

    1. I knew you were there. I am so happy you were yet sad you could not participate. I would have loved to hear you reading your wonderful pieces. Some authors on Twitter want to have again a Twitter space. If I do that I will let you know. Basilike opening a Twitter account is really easy and then you can read your poems. I will let you know. Thank you for entrusting me with your wonderful pieces 🌺🌸❤️

      1. A twitter account is in my plans, but every day, with one thing and the other, it is always left behind. If we have a second meeting on Twitter, it’s about time I opened one.

        It’s really an honour to be part of this, Gab. Thank you for making it possible ❤️

      2. My pleasure hon. It’s an honor to have your writings included in this anthology. Twitter is the easiest social media and the place where writers are. So I hope you find time to open one. Enjoy the rest of your day. Love you.

  10. WOW!!! I don’t know why I keep saying that; I fully believed this marvelous book would get to #1 – just no so fast!! What an amazing accomplishment! It’s been a thrill for me to be a part of this incredible journey. I’m going to buy a copy of the book for all the dear ladies in my life. I’m a #1 best selling author! I never thought I’d be able to say that and thanks to everyone who got involved, we can all say it. Fantastic achievement. Peace and love to all! ✌🏼 ❤️

      Diana, I said that before and I am going to say it again. When I started blogging you were the first person to ever share one of my poems on your blog. You were one of the first who thought my work was worth sharing. I will forever be grateful to you for that.
