when i set out writing “the silhouette inside” i had no idea i would be seeing it on a shelf. what started as lines written in the back of my mind has become an external piece of me. this book is so personal, like the pages of my diary turned inside out and illustrated. i’m so excited to share that my book is officially on stock at books on the square in my beloved home, providence, ri!
i would be remiss if i didn’t pay some thanks to this little corner of the internet, which i created 10(!) years ago to document my life as a dancer and keep my writing skills somewhat in tact as i began my professional career. back in 2010, a month before my first day of work at festival ballet providence, i opened a wordpress account and started typing. a decade ago, back when blogs were a thing of the future (hah), i could have never imagined that this site would grow into what it is today.
nostalgic to my core, i still look back on posts from the past fondly, some so clear i can almost read each word before i see it and others sweet reminders of memories long lost. somewhere along the way, this space grew from an online journal to a community of readers, entrepreneurs, and friends.
in honor of that relationship, i am giving you all a special discount on my book, “the silhouette inside“. use the code STBFAMILY (in all caps) at check out for 15% off the book. and pssssst…if you’ve been here for a while, you’ve already got a sneak peek into book number two ;)
my book “the silhouette inside” has officially been released! so many months of work have led up to this.
i am thrilled to announce that the book is available at my favorite Providence shop, Frog & Toad. it’s such an honor to be stocked by this beautiful little store, one that is curated with love and spends time supporting small businesses and artists all over rhode island.
while i would love to do an in-person reading/signing one day, until that becomes an option, head to my instagram to see a little video we put together to celebrate the release. the video features the first poem of the book, and one that was largely the impetus for putting the poems together and creating the narrative. i hope you enjoy!
if you’d like to get yourself or someone you love a copy, they are also available here.
As I’ve mentioned here before, while navigating the process of self-publishing my first book, I decided to create my very own printing press, matchbox press.
As soon as I created the graphic for the matchbox press logo, I pictured it on a t-shirt. It’s simple, but a bit edgy, and the perfect way to support this independent publisher, while I continue to print and sell my book. Thanks to my love for all things cozy, the shirt we came up with is super soft, light, and printed right here in Rhode Island. C can’t wait to dress his up with a suit and chucks for gigs ;)
If you are interested, get your tee here and enter the code SPARK for free shipping. Limited stock, so act fast!
ps- I am so excited to announce (soon) that my book has been officially stocked in its first brick and mortar shop- and it’s one of my absolutely FAVORITES! STAY TUNED to hear where…
