Hello, Dear Soupers!

Blog Posted:9/22/2017 10:01:00 AM
I just would like to let you know that due to time constraints I have not been able to be as active on PS lately, especially with reading your poetry, commenting, and replying to comments made on mine, for which I am always very honored and grateful.

I have been engaged in a few projects, one of which, was putting my second book together (actually doing the layout and print-ready setup for the cover and interior on my computer), uploading it, getting it approved and then publishing it through Createspace, owned by Amazon.  Doing it this way does not involve any expense for publishing a book.

My new book, HEARTFELT SONNETS, is up and running on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and may be searched on those sites by typing Sandra Haight in the search bar on each site. Here is the direct link to it on Amazon: Heartfelt Sonnets

If you enjoy Sonnets, my new book offers 100 of mine written with varied themes.  Many of them have appeared on Poetry Soup, and you may have already read them over time. My other projects are not poetry-related but are time-consuming as well. I will try my best to spend as much time as possible on Poetry Soup!

Hugs and thanks to all!  Sandra

I love Shakespearean Sonnet writing, and have been doing them for over 22 years. Don't you just love CreateSpace? I do, and have my 3rd book with them out now, plus 8 other books thaqt I paid around a thousand dollars apiece for before I discovered Amazon's CreateSpace. But I wonder if it is wise to tell everybody??? hmmmm I will check your sonnets out.

Andrea, thanks for asking. The title of my first book is, "Tides ~ Life's Ebb and Flow," published July 2014. It is listed on PS's advertisement page under 'books' with a live link. Or you can copy and paste this link on your browser's search line: https://www.amazon.com/Tides-Poems-Lifes-Ebb-Flow/dp/1500286761

Congratulations, Sandra. I remember the feeling of publishing my first chapbook. All the work that went into it. I know how consumed you must have been with the effort of putting it together. I went to read the synopsis and see the lovely cover of it. Very nice (and truly your sonnets reflect the rhythm and class of a traditional sonnet).
