"Lady Of Attica" is being released! The synopsis and copyright pages are up on T.W.N., and content will be shared each Tuesday. E.W.
After a period of absence from most social media, I am officially returning to updating T.W.N. and Superlative Deviation! I’m busily trying to complete a project for release here on the website but hope to share an update in a week or so.
In keeping with the season, I will be posting a few items to S.D. that revolve around the Angelic New Year, which I and others who study with my personal mentor observe. It might not bee as in-depth as I’d like it to be, since my main focus is elsewhere; but I am celebrating and wanted to share a taste of the positive vibes.
Stay tuned for the literary update and more news later this month!
Happy New Year to everyone joining my on this journey! I hope you took the time to reconnect with family in whatever way possible, and that you maintain the bonds of love and friendship not only this year but into the future, as well. I'm happy to announce that a new installment of the mini... Continue Reading →
I will cease to operate on My Poetic Side, as I no longer have time to manage that space. However, I do plan to stay on Medium for the foreseeable future. All other social media platforms remain in effect until further notice.
Now for the big announcement: my first poetry book will be available for purchase on Amazon starting Tuesday, December 21st! I will offer it in paperback format for $8.00 (USD). It does not contain any artwork at this time. The release just happens to coincide with the winter solstice, which was not originally my plan; but I’m glad it happened anyway! I think revealing a project full of positive light on the darkest, lowest point of the year is truly poetic.
I want to thank those of you who have remained with me throughout this phase of my journey. There’s still so much to come…

I’m excited to announce I will be receiving the proof of my first poetry book in a few weeks. I have been hard at work making several necessary revisions and am so excited to have a bound copy of my work to hold in my hand. Stay tuned to hear my final decision!
A new literary/research project will be revealed this coming Tuesday on Superlative Deviation. Stay tuned! E.W.
As fellow writers will know, the submission process can be daunting and time consuming. I have been keeping track of the dates of my various submissions and am also in the process of investigating alternative publishing platforms – specifically for the poetry book. I’m not sure exactly how to release it yet. There’s still a lot to learn. For the cozy mystery, I definitely hope to have it published traditionally (which is ideally what I want for all my work, regardless of genre).
Invariably, people who don’t work in publishing or the literary field have an unrealistic idea of what it means to be a writer; and writers have an unrealistic idea of what it means to be an author. Recently, I dove deeper into research by reading David Comfort’sAn Insider’s Guide to Publishing. While I don’t approve of the language he often uses, I do highly recommend…

First excerpt of revised poetry selected to appear in my new book has been posted to T.W.N. Check it out!
…The stone wall and the canon
Met them with a fearful ROAR!
They blew a kiss and whispered Love –
The canon was no more.
The stone wall raised its thorns
As they silently approached –
To them it was a gateway
And blossoming vines encroached…
Impostors are these archons?
I have no doubt they know
The purest generation,
That their hearts as white as snow.
