If you’ve been following along with the month’s posts, your poetry TBR might be a close to toppling over. Along with featuring fellow poets, I’ve done two Sunday Themed Recommendations (Indies and What I read in College). Today, I’m going to try adding at least one more book to that TBR pile. Maybe more than that ūüėČ

I have Susie Clevenger back on the blog. You’ll remember her from day 2 when she let us know she’ll be attempting to write 30 poems this month. Don’t forget to follow along with her progress HERE. And you can find my 30-in-30 poems HERE (yea, you tried clicking that didn’t you? There’s nothing to click. I’m failing at the writing this month…but maybe I have something up my sleeve later on. We’ll see.)

Today we’ll learn a little bit about her latest collection of poems,¬†Insomnia’s Ink. With that title alone, I’m sure the writers reading this can relate…and the readers can relate due to the long nights of not wanting to put down a book.

Without holding you up any longer, here’s¬†Insomnia’s Ink!

Insomnia, I believe I was born with it. My youngest memories are lying wide awake at night with my imagination running at full throttle. With my brain hotwired to function on little sleep I find midnight to 3:00 a.m. is when my muse decides to send poetry to pen.

Insomnia’s Ink is a sampling of the scattered thinking I live with. My brain is a lot like a remote control in my hand. It is constantly channel surfing what I’ve read, what I’ve seen, what I’ve heard, what I feel until it finds a place to stop long enough to focus and create. In this collection if I were to choose one word to describe the ink blots across the pages, it would be emotion.

Insomnia’s Ink is birthed from night hours of little sleep, caffeine,
and open eyed dreaming. Sit with Susie Clevenger beneath a forty
watt moon and explore the shadow and light of emotions that visit
her between midnight and the birdsong of morning.
