I HAVE AMAZING NEWS TO SHARE!!!
I recently released my first book of poems, “Black and White”! Black and White is a collection of poems that speak about racial oppression in America. In this book, there are poems about police violence, Islamophobia and culture appropriation, just to name a few. Besides the value and significance that each of the poems have, this book is also self published! Everything that went into the creation of this project–from the writing and editing to the formatting and biding–was created by yours truly!
In addition to the poems in the book, Black and White also has a series of pieces that I call, “notes”. The notes serve several purposes. In a poetry book, there often is the circumstance where, although there is a theme across all of the poems, the poems stand awkwardly alone–as opposed to a novel, where everything naturally lead on to the next. The notes bridge the gap between the individual poems. They make the book fill more whole, and they complete the message of the book. These notes are ideas/lines that came to mind as I put the book together. They’re portions of poems that did not make it to the final version of the book, but they screamed a necessity to be in the book. These notes are random lines that only make sense after you finish reading the book. These notes make the book!
HOW TO GET BLACK AND WHITE:
If you’ve been enjoying my poetry and/or you would like to have your own copy of Black and White, there are two ways that you could do so. The first one is by having me mail you a physical copy. If you would like a physical copy of Black and White, please let me know below, in the comments section. I will then give you my email and, from there, we can email back and forth about how to get you the book. The book is FREE SHIPPING for any locations within the United States.
The second way to get the book (which might be more convenient for those outside of the states) is by getting a digital copy. I have an account with the website: Sellfy, where a PDF version of the book can be purchased. WARNING: in order to purchase through that website, you NEED to have a PayPal account. If you don’t have a PayPal account, but you would still like to have a digital copy, comment below and we will decide on something. Finally, you can purchase the digital version of Black and White here.
Now, for our favorite part: cost of purchase. The digital and the physical copy of Black and White are both $10. But if you are not able to commit to the full price, I will accept any payment that is above $5 for the physical copy of the book. I accept payments via PayPal, Venmo, CashApp and Zelle. If you’re not able to complete a transaction through any of these, please let me know and we will decide on something. Due to taxes and laws that I have to abide by with Sellfy, I cannot allow that option for the purchase of the digital copy. Therefore, the price of the digital copy is $10.
Thank you immensely to everyone for reading my work or even going as far as financially investing into my work.
