"They're very down to earth and based on the poets more 'every day experiences'. You get a sense of the type of person she is by reading them. I won't say that they're the best I've ever read but they are well executed and I enjoyed reading them. There's a good evocation from the use of imagery and sentiment. They're worth adding to your kindle."
"Some of the best poetry I have read. It seems, in my mind, that these poems collect the pieces of emotions she felt about the subject enabling the reader to instantly smell, feel, and almost touch her thoughts."MaryAnn.ca reader reviews
"A quick and enjoyable read!"
"Far under-priced, these poems are evocative of warm personal moments and elements of life worth the silence and attention to appreciate. Appreciation is the feeling one is left with after a visit to this world of Mary Ann's. And, for those without one; of home."
"An enjoyable, pithy read.
"Your words awaken the senses and made this reader feel very alive. It was almost as though I was in the moment with you."
"Wonderful work Mary Ann. Some of those images really stick with you."
"I was touched by your poem Fudge. It evoked memories and smells of my mom who passed away last year. I usually don't "get" poetry but the last two lines are most moving."
"From a male perspective I thought that you had captured teenage and young men very well. I thought that this is a multidimensional woman."
Here's a shot of the full cover 6 x 9 trade paperback:
was originally published as Poems: twenty-cents-each. I published it as a "living book," meaning when I added new content, I updated the book and those people who bought early editions (only available digitally) had their copies updated. It was a fun way to approach this project.
