“What if a poem or song or letters or even this book could take your hand, the moment you need someone to take your hand, and lead you, nudge you forward. The pivotal moment that means life or death.”

March 28, 2018

I’m gearing up for my agent to take my first book out on submission. The title comes from this poem, written by Slam-o, Alan’s poetic alter ego. Before Alan and I became life partners, we were long distance muses. He sent me every screenplay he wrote, poems he penned during his MFA program, and photos of poetic aphorisms like the one above. I sent drafts of my first book, songs, articles, poems—whatever I was working on at the moment. Although the name of my book may change, the root of its inspiration won’t.
