68918 Okay folks, I will be placing an update to my book, The Medallion on my site, I have finally decided to work with a publisher on this one instead of publishing it myself. The reason why is because since it is a trilogy series, it will be triple the marketing and that is a lot of work for one person. I had to pray on this for some time because I love self publishing, but due to my back, I won't be able to take on the marketing g asset of this project.

68918 Which do you prefer, self publishing or traditional publishing?

68918 The cover is almost done! The book goes to an Editor next month. things are moving along smoothly except for back. I need to have surgery on my spine but so far, it is up to me when The surgery takes place. I am trying to push it until next year but controlling the pain can be very difficult especially when you are finishing a novel. Only God and time will tell how long I can withstand the pain. I am very determined to get this book out before surgery because it's going to be a while before I can write again after my surgery.

68918 So, my cover artist sent me a pic of what he is up to so far and I must say, it looks tight! I can't wait to post it here! I am still debating on whether to go with a publisher or self publish. It is so hard to decide.

68918 Okay, folks, my first Novel is coming along nicely. It should be out by Sept. - Oct. time frame. I should be handing it off to the editors by July. I am tweaking it here and there, and it gets frustrating when you know you need to take stuff out and put stuff in to make it what it needs to be, as if you aren't writing the book, as if the book is writing itself. But I am going with the flow and doing a little bit everyday. It is coming along nicely. I talked to my book cover designer and he says he is working on the very detailed part of the job. This gets me so excited because I know the cover is going to look awesome! I prefer art instead of photography on book covers, I don't know why, I guess it is the kid in me, but it will be done with computer graphics. So excited! Which do you prefer on book covers?

Thanks for this connect
By Larro Kimbreil
Your book is truly a wonderful one of a kind exception, and in no way similar to any poetry while praising the Lord, Wow and Wow. To me this is what I call a gift from God, you have been chosen to deliver the word in a more settle way. I could go on and on, but the good thing is I must read the next book to be able to go on this journey that opens new ways of seeing life as it is intended.

Lesson Learned
By Daniel Perez
Two mistakes were made when I received this book, I showed it to a friend and I let them read from it. Now they will not give it back and I have to get another. Tip for other Great Literary enthusiasts, start off with getting at least two copies before spreading the word on how amazing it is. Awesome!!!

Spiritual food.
By Tsuliena
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mentality Listens: In A World Where Art Screams... (Volume 1) (Paperback)
Angelica Perez's poetry is a blend of encouragement and support for the soul that is weary. She brings in her spirituality and her Source of inspiration, without the reader feeling "religiously" pounced upon. Its a serious read, but an easy read for the experienced/or novice poetry reader. She reveals the difficult experience of living with pain, and what chronic illness is like for a "spoonie." Ms Perez leaves one with hope and promise that "living" is possible for those of us suffering daily with a life limiting disease.

You feel the pain the sorrow the fear the joy in every word. The Author definitely has a gift of writing and she walks you through the long arduous path taken by someone who is living a life of pain and then rescued. A must read for encouragement both spiritual and physical!!!

Wonderful and Heartfelt!
By kitthekitten128
Very talented writer! You can really feel the pain and heartache as well as triumph through her writing. I highly recommend to anybody who has ever felt the touch of God upon their lives.

It calls to me.
By BeyondEmpathy
"Mentality Listens" calls to every person that has or continues to have chronic pain and identifies with the questions and struggles that we face minute by minute and hour by hour. It explores the darkness that each of us finds ourselves plunged into and the questions of "why me?" and helps through its pages to help to offer the warm embrace that we are not alone and that despite our fears and anger the God remains at our side. Pain sadly does become part of our personal "shadow" and through the authors poems helps the reader to integrate or struggles into our personal development of self"

68918 Just and update and a question...for Mentality Listens, I went through For all you Indie Writers out there, who did you go through to publish your work and did it cost you anything? CreateSpace is free but it does have extra fees that you can choose from like an LCCN number if you choose and they also offer to convert your book into an ebook for you for a low fee as well. Let me know what you did! :)

68918 This is where you can ask me anything about my process of self publishing. Who I went through, how long it took me to publish my first book, was it hard? Lately, a lot of people have been asking me for advice on how to self publish their I figured I would answer your questions here! Talk to you soon!

68918 I just wanted to say I haven't written anything this week :(

My doctor put me on a new medicine and my body is adjusting to it. I've been so tired and cranky, yes I admit it, cranky. LOL. I just haven't had the guts to write. But I think today, that's all over. And even if it's not, it has to be! It's time to get this book out of my hands and into the editors hands before my cover artist is done!

68918 I wanted to add here that my favorite soccer team is DC United!!! Check out my DC United website and podcast! -

Anyone else like soccer? If so, what's your favorite team? Please don't say Seattle! I may have to kick you out of the group...LOL.

68918 Thank you for everyone who has participated in my Q&A so far! I would love for everyone in the group to introduce themselves so I am updating my response with a little more information about myself.

I have several health issues that cause me to be disabled. It would be a lot easier if it was just one. I wanted to share this site I found last year that has helped me a lot>
As someone who has arthritis in many different places and numerous spine issues, It is hard to face the facts that most of the time I don't look the way I feel which makes it harder for people to accept my disabilities. This site helped me cope with this issue in my life. I hope this helps someone in the group and if not, I pray that you pass along this website to someone you may know that is struggling with an ailment.

68918 So, I was thinking about making Mentality Listens into an Audio Book. What do you think? It will have background music while someone reads the poetry in my book. Or maybe a CD of poetry...Do they even do that?
