Self Love Notes

Astrid I.


"I do not think I have ever read a book as inspiring as Self Love Notes. I recommend it to those who need the right word at the right time but have no idea whom to
ask."




I'm Rising

Rabia T.

From the very first poem, "Joyfuf Messy," to the last one, "I'm Rising," the author gives ample opportunities to readers to find their inner strength, getup, crawl, walk and fly, but never give up.

Waves of You

Audrey L.

I received this book as a prize and was not sure how I would like it. I am very particular about poetry in general. As I started to read I began to feel the words. Each poem/word hitting my heart in a different way but I felt each one. I felt the love l, the sorrow, the pain. I cried and smiled. This is a book that not only will I share but will recommend to those I know and even those I don’t. This is amazing work.

Rise Unstoppable

Jose C.


"At times reflective, at times reminiscent of the poet's experiences, but most importantly, inviting readers to break free from the shackles of limiting beliefs and not be hemmed in by pain or trauma. Rise Unstoppable is inspiring and delightful to read, filled with insights and powerful images. It is the poetry that celebrates you."

When Love Rises

Sefina H.


When Love Rises by Michelle G Stradford is a well-written poetry collection that I found myself getting wrapped up in very quickly.  Overall, this book took me on an emotional roller coaster as each poem truly showed me a different side of love and each one was imbued with such emotion that I felt like I could connect to each poem on a personal level.

I absolutely love sharing my poetry, quotes, and affirmations out loud. The melodic sounds and rhythm of words are intended to be listened to. It took me just a brief minute to decide to do my first book signing and poetry reading shortly after publishing my first book. The energy I receive from those in the audience is life-affirming.
