My friend, poet, writer/author Mary Jane Gonzales is collecting submissions for a new book, and you are invited! If you aren’t familiar with her work, Mary Jane Gonzales is well-known in the chronic pain community for her books like In the Blink of an Eye, Trial and Triumph, and Poetic Devotions for Those in Pain, among her other books which you can view here at Barnes and Noble. I love to share her poetry here on my blog as her work is always genuine and powerful. I hope you will consider submitting a chapter of your own life for her upcoming book.
From the author: “This is a book I am working on, about situations in life where our voice is/was not heard. If you have a story to tell, that you would like included in the book, I am still accepting submissions and would love to hear from you. Stories can be 1-3 pages in length, on any subject that relates to this topic. Whether for awareness or encouragement, the goal is for the book to help others; as, often times, we feel alone in our struggle and hearing other people’s stories can help. Because I am bearing all the cost of publication and because my books are priced very affordably, there will be no monetary compensation for your story, just the satisfaction you receive. All stories and questions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you.”
