Today is a very happy day. The Poet’s Wife makes its debut with Tirgearr Publishing. A new title, a new home, a new market to reach readers like you. This wonderful story was previously released as Nopeming Shores. I bring that up because The Poet’s Wife is about second chances. Today, this book has a fresh start.
The poet in the story is Gabe. His emotions are captured in haiku by my dear friend and poet, J. Andrew Lockhart. Today, Andrew shares a new haiku to celebrate the book’s release and remind us of how even in death Gabe still longs for his wife, his love.
as if spring
returns on this
your eyes appear
Gabe loved Lily with every breath he took. What happened to Lily and Gabe illustrates the wisdom of living each moment to the fullest.
Lily Holliway’s life is shattered when her husband, Gabe, is killed in Afghanistan. A new job and dear friends aren’t enough to ease her yearnings for the love she clings to.
Gabe feels her grief so strongly that his spirit cannot leave the confines of this world. He can’t rest in peace until he’s sure Lily is going to be okay. In desperation, he reaches out to her using his special gift.
Finding the mysterious haiku makes Lily question her grip on reality. When she sees Gabe face-to-face, can she believe her eyes?
Lily must trust the only man she’s ever loved to help her begin again.
Their’s is a powerful romance devoid of graphic language or sex. It will leave you breathless with its poignant beauty. You’ll cheer for Lily through your tears. I promise The Poet’s Wife will linger with you long after the last word is read. You’ll tell your friends about the ghost story that captured your imagination and your heart.
To celebrate its release, I’m giving away a copy of The Poet’s Wife to the person who inspires me with their story about a second chance at love. It doesn’t have to be long or elegant, but please share.
I also invite you to join me today at Tirgearr Publishing’s blog – Heart of Fiction. I’ve got a short interview over there – come welcome me to my newest publishing home. Take a look at the wonderful work of the other Tirgearr authors while you’re there. I bet you’ll be as impressed as I am.
The Poet’s Wife is dedicated to my father, who passed away 25 years ago. It’s apropos that today is also Veteran’s Day. My father served and so did the character, Gabe. I salute all the brave men and women who have served and are serving our great nation. May there soon be peace in every corner of the world.
Until the next time,
