Yesterday at our church … I shared about Poetry of Presence during the announcements.  Everyone was supportive and interested in it.

After the service, one of our members who works as a counselor for the Veterans Administration in Montevideo, MN, said she plans to get a copy to use with her clients…. I think it could be a book that all VA hospitals and institutions across the country might want to have on hand.

I just received these comments today from a writer friend who deals with mental illness about your book:

“This is a poetry anthology that should be accessible, and of use, to a great many readers, so I hope it does well. I’ll plug it on Facebook, for sure, and also tell my therapist about it.”
