Congratulations to author, Selma Martin, on the publication of her debut poetry collection, In The Shadow of Rainbows, which is released today, and available from Amazon.com, Waterstones.com and Barnesandnoble.com. You may already have read some of the advance reviews, and so have an idea just how special this collection is. Here is the latest:
“Prepare to be transported into a realm where dreams, emotions, and the wonders of the natural world intertwine. Allow the words to wash over you, evoking a sense of wonder, a sprinkle of whimsy, and a renewed appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us all.”
— Sarah Gribble, International Bestselling Author of Surviving Death

This wonderful news for the 10th EIF title: the presses have been busy, and continue to be so! I hope you will enjoy reading Selma’s book as much as I have enjoyed bringing it to press. Another labour of love. It has been a pleasure to work with Selma. I look forward to announcing new publications from talented and remarkable authors in the near future. In the meantime, please join me in celebrating Selma’s remarkable achievement!
