Release Date: June 10, 2019
Received From: Review requested by the author

Where I Ache is broken up into six chapters ranging from themes such as depression, jealousy, death, and strength. These are delicate subjects to talk about and most people avoid them because of the uncomfortable vulnerability. I’ve always written and shared my poetry with the hope that readers would relate and feel less alone. I hope you feel a sense of community to all of those connected throughout this collection.

ARC REVIEW: Goddess of the Hunt by Shelby Eileen

SUMMARY

6x9_BW_110frontPublisher: Self-pub
Release Date: February 20, 2019
Received From: Review copy from the author
