Help me, help you bring a book into the world you wont want to put down. "Lay My Bones Over Spilled Milk" by Simply Kat
Here's the deal, I'm gonna give it too you good folks cruising the internet straight, because I feel close to you. This book is all kinds of goodness with cherry on top (or a glass of milk.) But for real, I truely am proud of the content of this book entitled "Lay My Bones over Spilled Milk". It is a true reflection of my journey through life and all of the twist, curves, sunshine and pounding fists a person can experience. A collection of poems, stories and illustrations to keep the eyes entertained through a raw and vunerable plummit into the perspective of a young woman who has seen her fair share in this crazy world. If that isnt enough, I was blessed to have a beautiful foreward written by the lovely and talented Sonya Renee
(Individual Slam Champion, International poet and Founder of "The Body is not an Apology" http://www.thebodyisnotanapology.com/) to make this piece of work a page turner literally from beginning to end. I have waited a year since I started writing this book. After, pushing pens, dealing with editors, pushing back dates, taking care of life (which usually involves the busy schedule of a 6yr old active in everything or taking care of the children that didnt come from my womb but still need full bellies and guidance) I am finally done with the book. Here is where you come in! As a single mom,and a full time artist and mentor with a non-profit just starting, I need help funding an amazing book that I hope to be one of many.
I NEED MONEY!
but for real it is worth every penny I am asking for. Like I said before it is not just poems, there are illustrations as well and it will not be a long wait, since the book is already completed and ready to send to print. I am asking you to support not only a book but in a poet who has dedicated almost half of her life to an art form. If your wondering what your getting yourself into here are some videos to get a sneak peek.Thank you in advance to all who support!
