New Poet Welcome-Yes, We Have a Book Trailer-Oh, and Buy Some Stuff

Faye Kilday's contributions to Poems With Heart will make this an international anthology in the spirit of charity. Three poems from her book Poems For Funerals & Those Who Grieve will be featured in this anthology. Her first collection of poems, With Love, was published in 1996. The first book in her Angel-Inspired Poetry series, Angels Speaking, was published in 2000. Poems from this series have been published in a variety of magazines and have touched the hearts of people around the world.


Publishing a book is not cheap. Even self-publishing a book is not cheap if done properly. While the prices of self-publishing have been drastically reduced with the advent of digital and print-on-demand technology, creating a professional-looking book still takes some money. I have been very fortunate that I've had talented people helping with various aspects to make this anthology a success.
However, in today’s economy, many people don’t have the requisite cash lying around to publish a book. Two creative ways to raise the money needed to fund publishing this project is through selling merchandise and I will be posting a Kickstarter in the near future. Funds raised will go toward production costs (ISBN, small press printing expenses, etc.) and marketing (advertising, hiring a publicist, etc).
Please take a look at our new merchandise and by the way not only are you helping raise money to launch the book but doing us a huge favor with free advertising. When someone asks about your cool bag or new kindle cover be sure to tell them all about Poems With Heart!
In addition, Rachel A. Olson has come through once again with a book trailer. Kudos!
