Write, ponder, write some more,

Pour out your heart, doing what you adore,

Reach out to others, give them support,

Food for thought, a lighthouse in the storm.

Typeset, proofread, prettify code,

Design cover, render, log in, upload,

Details, keywords, proofs, edit mode,

Approved, “Hello World, here’s my next episode!”


Someone recently asked me, “how do you go about publishing a book?” I sighed deeply, then said, “with a lot of love and passion, research, planning, vision and patience, but man oh man, the end result is well worth the effort!”

Here, I touch on my creative and production process with a bit more (albeit playful) detail. I really hope you take the time to check “Confront The Shadows” out, as it doesn’t paint life as a bed of roses, instead it is raw; real; eye opening; supportive; it illustrates personal growth; and captures moments of strength and immense beauty.

I hope it proves to you that life has it’s hard times for us all, you are not alone in your struggles. Yes, people do give up and cash out, but when we choose to use our pain and suffering to fuel our growth instead, rather than feeding our fears and adding to our problems, we find new ways to be strong, be fulfilled, and in turn, we become a beacon of hope.

So, follow the link in my Bio, read the blurb, buy the book, join me on this poetic quest, and learn a lot more about me, yourself and the World around us in the process. We can achieve so much in our lifetime, but first we have to face the darkness and remove its power over us, then we are free to shine like the fantastic beings we were always meant to be! Shine bright, my friend!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
