I couldn’t wait to share this exciting news with you! You, my fellow bloggers and visitors can now pre-order your own e-copy which will be delivered to your e-reader (or free Kindle app) on Independence Day, July 4, 2015, the same day that paperbacks and other e-reader formats (nook, Kobo) become available to the world. What a sweet way to celebrate independence, right? I know, I know, it’s all so very exciting. Oh, Freedom!

I am now what the industry calls a published author, so please allow me the formal introduction:

Writer, essayist, and poet AVRIL SOMERVILLE is also the author of the upcoming and highly anticipated novel, How Dare You Say Goodbye? Her poem “Massive Cover-Up” was selected for performance during the Art Sanctuary of Philadelphia’s 31st Annual Celebration of Black Writing Festival in May 2015 featuring some of the region’s most talented authors and artists.

Note: Symbol on front cover is a combination of two separate Adinkra symbols –the “Morning Star” which can mean a new start to a new day, and the wheel which represents rotation or independent movement. In essence, it is a symbol that represents transformation; after all, it is the reason we are here, to leave better than when we came, that is to be transformed.
