  Book Review Alert: Tears of Me  Author: LaToya Martin Published: July 3, 2020 Publisher:   LaToya Martin ISBN-13: 978-1947928121 ASIN:  B08DL6ZFJ6 Rating: 4 First poem that drew me into this novel was something that could be considered as a goodbye poem to cancer. I love the last line. It showed the determination of the character to overcome cancer. My second favorite piece of work in this novel would be Walketh Out Of Heaven . This poem is a dedication to the love that she is found in her mate. When reading this poem you can  tell that the author was in love with this person. The love that was spoken about was as they say something serious. It is a poem for those that are determined to stay married. When she compared love to Alpha and Omega. That part had me floored. Whoever this person that she's in love with you can tell that was a love that she's been waiting for.  I must say I love the poetry in this novel. It seems like every poem has something to do with everyday lif

Eventually, I snapped out of it and submitted the manuscript to a publishing firm. The first book that I published and liked was in 2015. I had just turned fifty-one. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books? I love books so oftentimes I would go to books signings and was amazed at fellow authors and their writing styles. A light bulb went off in my head. I think it’s time for me to attempt to do this. I enjoy creating characters and after a while they become
