How is the Book Coming? When will it be available?

I have been getting these questions a lot lately from not only friends but family members as well.  I wish I had the immediate answer.  All I can say is soon.  I am patiently or impatiently waiting for the inside photos to be cleaned up and changed to black and white.  The whole project was put on hold when my friend’s paying job became overwhelming and then his computer died and he needed to have another one rebuilt.

The good news is he is back working on them.  I am not sure how far he is on the 50 photos he has to work with.  And I don’t want to ask because it will only make me anxious.  Once these photos are cleaned and ready I will submit them.  From what I gather it will take a few weeks for me to get a working copy to read and make any necessary changes to.  Then it is up to me to go through it and send it back.  We are near the end of June.  Without making a commitment to a release date, I don’t expect it to happen before September.

Thank you all for your support while I continue to write here and work on the book’s release.

An excerpt from Allergic to Life:

In my home I feel

like a stranger

Because of this here

I do not want to linger

Will I ever feel

at home and at ease

In this cold house

with this awful disease

My life has been

turned upside down

I now wear less

smile and more frown

Meeting with friends

to talk and shop

All these fun things

have come to an end

To their homes for visits

I cannot go

I sit at home and

they do not show

Friendship with me

is now a bother and chore

Special soaps and clothes

before they come to my door

Less and less will I

hear from them

For Rick and I it will

just be me and him

I guess I can’t

blame them for

I have really become

rather a bore

I haven’t been here

or there

I really have nothing

to share

They saw a new movie

or found a new place to shop

I got a new food and

found a safe mop

  3. Loved your poem. If you have any unpublished, you might try this contest. I entered one, but won’t know if I’ve won until 8/15. I’m having trouble getting the site to download. You might do better to type Rattle Poetry on the address line. This came from Writers’ Digest.
