Taking a Break

I know you haven’t heard much from me lately and I’m sorry for disappearing on you.  I am going to be stepping back from my blog for a while.  I find that I have other areas where I would rather spend my time and blogging has become more of an obligation than a joy.  If what I’m doing here doesn’t bring me joy, then I shouldn’t be doing it. 

I’ve taken breaks like this in the past and I end up coming back rather quickly, as I miss my WP community.  We’ll see where this break takes me.  Happy Writing, my Friends and thank you for joining me on this journey.  Penny ❤ 


Please check out Dan’s wonderful review of Treasuring Poetry 3: Passions and for Grief Songs.

I say monthly, now that I’ve managed to complete three months in a row. OK, enough about me, let’s get to the books.

Then I…

Word Craft Poetry

Welcome toMeet the Poet, a Word Craft Poetry feature written to introduce you to the poets in our writing community.

This is a way to get to know more about the poets and their work. Many of our poets have written both fiction and non-fiction and published and self-published their works.

Some of our poets are also artists, crafting their magic through watercolors or other artistic means along with the written word. There are even a few musicians in our poetic community!

At least once a month, I’ll be introducing you to the poets in our community! Grab a cup of tea or coffee, and meet the poet!

Our guest today is Kaye Lynn Booth. She’s the other half of the Poetry Treasures publishing duo, along with Robbie Cheadle. You can read Robbie’s Meet the Poet interview below:
