Patchwork Poetry by Mel Finefrock – Here is the link on Amazon.
One of my friends, Mel Finefrock, who is also blind due to a form of RP, recently published this book and I am so excited for her. Writing is her passion.
Here is her posted biography: Mel Finefrock is a wearer of many hats. In addition to being a poetess and songwriter, she guest blogs for popular sites such as ODEP’s Disability Blog, the Mighty, and the Huffington Post, and has even been interviewed by the BBC concerning her take on the ever-trending topic of inspiration within the context of disability. Mel is also a freelance editor and transcriptionist and has had the pleasure of working with independent authors, such as bestselling romance novelist Krista Lakes and historical writer Raymond Caballero.
Mel’s writing has been published in Wordgathering and the Jawline Review, as well as received awards from the Coalition of Texans with Disabilities and the University of North Texas, her alma mater.
Here is the description of her book: Straight from the heart and imagination of Mel Finefrock, blind writer and musician, emerges a delicately bold collection of exploratory free verse poems chronicling various aspects of her personal journey. Believing that there is beauty to behold in almost any situation, Finefrock quilts precious and ordinary moments alike into patchwork poetry that embodies themes of love, friendship, pain, and growth. While unique to her experiences, Finefrock’s soul-baring reflections are also applicable on a universal level and will inspire readers to look inward.
I encourage you to check it out. It’s only $3 on Kindle. That’s a STEAL!
