The book is here, the printed copy and I have to admit I am delighted with the result. Personally I prefer the soft cover version, it is easier to handle and the finish is much classier.
The hardback in my honest opinion, is a little too shiny, so not worth the extra cash.
Review of Word Intoxication by Wayne Tolbert
"From the beginning, Ruth Johnston catches the reader pleasantly off guard with her cutting edge poem First Blood and immediately shifts gears with the emotional words dedicated to her father in "The Man in the Moon", a touching tribute to her late father. The heart of this little girl is revealed with her words:
“Even in death you showed me,
there’s nothing to fear.”
…while the soul of the woman is exposed in "High Heels":
“I love to wear high heels
I am addicted to them.”
In "Today", Ruth says, “Today I want to be twenty-three” and sometimes in this wonderful book, she is.
…and again she shifts and honestly reminds us of how we all feel from time to time in Invisible Indeed:
“I am invisible
Camouflaged in the corner”
The photography is all Ruth and her creative juices flow with the shot of her dogs positioned so their legs form the shape of a heart and the nature shots (is Absolut Citron natural?) are exquisite, sometimes golden with reflection and other times white with the silence of snow.
Ruth’s book, Word Intoxication, is one I am proud to own…and you will be too!"
My own coffee table book
I am overwhelmed that so many of you, want to buy my book.
I previously posted that I can offer you a better price using my author discount. What I had taken into account was postage, within the UK P&P is £2, international orders obviously will be more expensive.
I am still ordering a number of books for friends Monday.
Please let me know if you still wish me to buy one for you.
If you would prefer to order through Xlibris or Amazon, the links to the Xlibris sites (UK and USA) are below and I will add Amazon as soon becomes available.
Thank you again for your support
Love Ruth xx
