Ok, so I haven't posted in a while (been busy with many, many projects...more so than usual), but this is so exciting I just had to post about it even though I only have about ten minutes to do so.
Alexithymia, the first publication by poet and writer Kit A. Sinclair (she has a novel coming out soon as well, which I will post about later) is released and available for download to your Kindle or on paperback for you traditional bookworms like me who like to feel and smell the book you're reading. Ok, I don't exactly go around sniffing books, but you know what I mean. Anyway, if you're a fan of poetry, or even if you're not, you should go give this poetry collection a looksie. I had the pleasure and privilege of editing Alexthymia before it's release, so having read it myself, I can assure you it's worth the read.
The poems inside are raw, and they tackle a lot of deep and rough topics since this particular collection covers a year of the author working through love and loss and battling depression. Thus, it comes with a trigger warning, which I'm echoing here, as those topics can be difficult for others struggling with similar issues to read about (and sometimes re-experience as a result).
So if you're up to it and want the emotional catharsis, or just want to read beautiful words processing difficult emotional depths, then give Alexithymia a chance. I wouldn't recommend it if it weren't excellent. Also check out that gorgeous cover art of a gorgeous model! I forgot her name (my bad, I'll look it up and post it later) as well as the name of the photographer, but the model perfectly captured the melancholy and inability to express that melancholy thematically ingrained in the book.
