Friends! I’m excited to announce a book giveaway. COVID-19 is a bummer, but some cool things have happened during this time!

Not only have I now written over 30 blog posts, but also have officially gained a solid 400+ followers on Instagram! Coming this far could never be possible without you and your support. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you! And especially because we’re all going through such a hard time, I want to give my thanks in the form of something you can hold.

So I’m sure you’re wondering:

What exactly does this giveaway include?

So let’s get to the point. I’m offering very unique copy of my poetry collection, Frankenstein & the Phoenix. Not only do these poems take you through time, space, love, betrayal, and healing, but also offer a source of hope when things seem dark.
