I thought I should share with you how the poems were constructed, what was behind the whole idea and how important the project is to me.
The poems are a mix, there is something for everyone. For those who hate love, there is something for you. If you love love, then there is something for you. If you care about society, there are poems for you. If you have problems with people who gossip about you, there is something for you. And most of all, there are poems that inspire us to do better in life, to become better human beings.
The idea behind using Blurb.com to publish the book, was a very simple choice. It is cheap, I get to share the work with my friends and my fans. Also, I did not want something that brought it out to the masses straight away, I needed to become a ‘published’ author. I got the opportunity with Blurb.com and they have been amazing. I have been in contact with them via Facebook, excellent service. Although, I am not able to put it on the shelves, I decided to make it completely for the internet and hopefully a well-known publisher will pick me up from there.
The importance of ‘Questions of my Soul’ for me was the simple problems I was facing in life. At one moment, I was going through a phase of hating how society is treating the world today and then I would be exhausted by my own problems. Therefore, I decided that let me put these into poems and inspire people to see the better in life. Like the journey of life is full of ups and down, the book is the same. At one time, you are at a low then you are at a high. The purpose behind that is that no matter what in life, you will have to face the low phases aswell as the high and more happier phases.

Out of the 65 poems, 55 were selected for the book, which ensures that I wanted the best in there. However, the ones that did not make it, will be posted here on the website.
The next project is one on spirituality. Therefore, it will be more in-depth and if the sales are encouraging with Blurb.com, I will publish with them. The poems on Spirituality, will be more for the classes and will definitely going into new areas of what spirituality may be for today’s generation.
So keep your eyes peeled here and may all of our souls find what is best in life.
