That's it! The last advance reviews for Walks: A Collection of Haiku (Volume 1) have arrived. Check them out below:
Let's start with the review from Portuguese Photographer Isabel Nolasco:
"Walks: A Collection of Haiku (Volume 1) takes us to a new dimension, but in the world we live in. It captures the true essence of life and feelings. With new eyes. Minimalist, but great, and strong. A new look into details we often lack to see. Or feel. The precious little things that surround us. And the greatest. It awakes the magic and the dreams.
This writing freezes the moments. Like photography does. Moments we can cherish and keep warmly in our heart.
Cendrine’s haiku are the best I’ve read so far. I strongly recommend the book to everyone."
This review comes from Writer and Editor Katrina Moody:
"I was charmed and reflective after I read Walks: A Collection of Haiku (Volume 1) by Cendrine Marrouat. Her mastery of the Haiku form of poetry is superbly delightful, combining the beats of the Haiku with evocative words and phrases that bring the reader to a moment in time, frozen.
Haiku are traditionally difficult to write in a meaningful way, because most writers are limited by the rules of the form. Not Marrouat. She uses the form like a master, crafting her own word combinations to dance within the beats of the Haiku.
Many of the Haiku included in the volume have become personal favorites, and I discover new interpretations of them after rereading them. I encourage anyone with a love of the form, or even a curiosity about Haiku, to read Walks and meander through the moments portrayed. I’m sure they will find surprise and joy in the moments, and be delighted to be pulled into a deeper reflection of these Haiku."
I have also another major announcement to make. The book will be released on Thursday, February 28, 2019!
Today, I uploaded the book to Amazon. Pre-orders will start as soon as it goes live. It should take about 72 hours. I will let you know!
