Well it has taken some time and a lot of stress, but I have finally published my first collection of poetry. Now, I am not expecting anything special from it, but it does feel good. Self publishing is hard, though it is something I will continue to do. Atm the ebook is still free for one more day, though if anyone does want me to run the free ebook longer, its something I would consider for a review or something. It has taken a long time to get to this point, and a lot of life moments. I deal with my addictions, my diagnosis with schizophrenia, and just life, if that interests you at all. Now I'm not sure what this blog is for, except some release on everything it took to get here. I hope also that you follow whatever dreams you have creatively, because despite it not maybe being a financial satisfaction, it is certainly a satisfaction anyway. Thanks for listening and I hope everyone is happy. Is writing. And is still inspired by life, no matter what!

Congratulations on your accomplishment Brad! It takes a lot of work, and even courage for some. I prefer to support fellow poets/authors by purchasing reasonably priced books. Just let me know when and where ;)

Bradley, I have read, "Schizophrenia and Split Mind," and they were quite engaging, -- embodying subtle hints of wit -- ingeniously done, my friend, Aloha~William
