New Book: “The Lady Nyo Poems and other Verse”

This was an opportunity that came suddenly.  It’s a private printing, but I take it as just a chance to see how they all look together.  I have complied some of the Japanese styled poetry and the writings of the character (fictional) Lady Nyo.  I have some things to work out here, but I was asked to get this together fast.  So I did.

It’s going to be republished in a ‘fuller’ version, as there are other stories I want to include, but that will be later.  I have to finish them first.  I had a lot of ‘stuff’ and at least this time  it all is of a similar theme.

Makes for less confusion. And a shorter book.

    Hey shia!

    Thank you. It’s just a reduced version..to see what it looks like and how it holds together. I want to run a longer version later this fall, with new stories and poems.

    No, I didn’t paint the cover, but I wish I had. It’s so lovely, and I was drawn to it fast. I believe it is by Utamaro, but I can’t guarantee this.

    Poetry is a hard sell people tell me, but I think attitudes are changing. I’m not going for any mass market. This book will be a bit easier as a ‘read’ though, I think. Only Japanese inspired stories.

    We will see. Thank you, shia for your fond hopes here.

    Well done. Self-publishing, or private publishing as you call it, can solve some problems. I like the cover picture – very beautiful and appropriate.
