The Heart of Space Book Tour & Giveaway!

The Heart of Space
by Cendrine Marrouat
Genre: Poetry
“The Heart of Space” is a collection of 38 pieces that delve into several major topics, including solitude, the importance of embracing pain, and the lessons one can learn from self-discovery.
“Every single poem is utterly endearing, imbued with a careful sense of introspection, philosophical musings and above all a genuine feeling of hope that, no matter what happens to us in our lives, in the end things will turn out all right.” – David Ellis, Author of “See A Dream Within: Found “Poe”try Based On The Collected Poetry Works Of Edgar Allan Poe”
Thank you for your interest in my work!
My name is Cendrine Marrouat. (It is pronounced as “san-drEEn mar-wah”. The “t” at the end is optional.) Originally from Toulouse, France, I moved to Winnipeg, Canada, in 2003. I am a dual citizen.
I am a photographer, specializing in nature, black-and-white and closeup images. My photography seeks the mundane to capture the fleeting, but true beauty of life in its many forms.
I approach photography in the same way as I write poetry. It’s not about the tools. It’s about the moment when my eyes catch a story that needs to be told. What happens next, is a spiritual yearning to describe the scene with my camera. However, it is during the editing process that my poetic background comes into play. Every photo must achieve two goals: simplicity and serenity. I use the pure black and white format to convey timelessness. Occasional tinges of sepia are for added depth. Finally, colors stand for romanticism.

Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu Audio Set
by Kaitlynzq
Genres: Adult Literary Fiction, poetry, Romance
The stories within Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu
connect, unfold, interweave many character’s stories
needs, feelings, desires, dreams
contain words of
caresses around
as a cocoon of soft cashmere
accompanied by sweet aroma
allures to intimate nearness
remains a velvet kiss
their threads as two crescent moons
connected under the firelights
that layer the chords, and form the lyrics
all of you entered my world as dawn’s awakening sky of soft palette
my garnet heart melted in iridescence to bloom in sun’s rays
glow in night’s depth as the stars echo the rhythm of my heart
my insides sigh and expand in delight
harmonious blend as our lives

caresses around
as a cocoon of soft cashmere

remains a velvet kiss
1) What is your author name and where do you currently live?
My author name is my first name, Kaitlynzq, and I currently live in
northern California, and have a love for soft, gentle breezes and
calm climates. Trees, flowers, the ocean, and mountains are all
extremely important to me with how I connect.
2) Can you share more about the concept of your book?
My writing forms into books that are connected as a set of
interconnected stories with elements from each
story
that interweave in one another as heart’s wave, heart’s song,
heart’s breath. Characters with the
same
feelings, needs, dreams, desires while each book holds its own unique
form. Instead of a chronological set, the books included in a series
are inter-connected, meaning interior connected.
My first series, Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu includes
Ancient Script of Lovecontu audio poem, Legend
of
Song de Light
audio book, Legend of Song de Light audio
play, and Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu
audio set.
With interior poetic stanzas hinted at in Legend of Song de Light that
bloom into full poems in Ancient
Script
of Lovecontu
to then step within notes of love within Legend
of Song de Light,
as a “Yes, …, I, …, will
meet you tonight.”
And, all three of these books are held gently in my book Lovecontu Song
de Light Lovecontu
audio set, and written with poetic prose and
touches of romance.
3) And, even more details?
Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu audio set holds the internal vocabulary
of a character’s heart, that beautiful space of needs, desires,
dreams, feelings, with the undercurrent of the depth of lovecontu a
continual rhythm within a heart.
Lovecontu touches as flowers, sounds of a pink glow, song of radiant chords,
and continues within the series of interconnected stories Lovecontu
Song de Light Lovecontu.
For the vocal synopsis of this audio set, and more about the series, the
following link will guide you to the playlist on my audio streams for
Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu
4) What inspired you to write this book?
Within my books, I include delicate symmetry of colors, music, and flowers.
Sometimes as symbolic metaphors, and
other
times as literal connections, within a character’s experiences that
at times, link with another character’s
experience.
Moment by moment, layer by layer, that become a story.
My inspirations come from the interior spaces within my heart, within
other people, and within precious natural
elements
like the layers inside of a tree. And, in the night time depths of
my heart the idea for this series continued to unfold to join in the
daylight hours to reveal even more as I wrote.
5) Do you have an author website and/or blog?

6) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors
and reviewing their work?
I love adult literary fiction, poetry and romance, and these are the
same genres that I write in. New authors are as wonderful as any
author along the spectrum of their life and artistry.
I don’t review authors’ work; however, I have created a collective
book box subscription that focuses on the beautiful depths of poetry,
and highlights the full color wheel of poets. If any poets are
interested in being included in one of the editions for
hearts’
poetry,
more information is available here kaitlynzq.com/poets-center
I would be honored to have a conversation with you about the
opportunities to include you in hearts’ poetry…
a special extension and collection of the artistry of poets
each of their heart’s natural language, imagination’s dance
their words stream into sounds of lyrical compositions that form the
stanzas
lines
and notes that connect together into poems as their unique
heart’s wave, heart’s song, heart’s breath
heart’s breath, heart’s song, heart’s wave
and are woven into each month’s hearts’ poetry
7) As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
It is difficult for me to explain within one animal, because I connect
with many animals…butterflies gentle way they float in the air,
snow leopard and their soft, intense depth of their eyes, horses and
their elegant way, bigfin reef squid and its beautiful way of
bioluminescence in the sea, a hummingbird’s dance, eagle’s long
wingspan, axolotl and their kind expression, little blue penguin’s
precious tenderness, and my list goes on and on.
And, my love of these precious beings are part of something that I’ve
designed called giving tree, where 25% of sales goes to a
charity within books, theatre, radio and nature. For more
information about this community sharing extension, and to
synchronize your purchase with the current month’s giving tree
moments, please visit these pages

Wings of Emotions, by Euphonos- Four Star Review

71AvQmVbSML._SL1500_♥♥♥♥

 

Wings of Emotions by Euphonos is a book of poetry which has it’s ups and downs. Personally, I didn’t much care for many of the poems strictly on love, but poetry is, of course, subjective. In all honesty, I prefer the more morbid stuff. There were several poems which I thoroughly enjoyed and which created a lasting impression on me, however, and that is the mark of a good poem. “Dream,” “I Walked By To Find You,” and “Before I Met You” are three such poems. All in all, it was an enjoyable read and the poems held a lot of raw emotion in them. If you enjoy the brighter side of poetry (versus the dark, morbid side), I would definitely recommend reading this.

Poetically Baring My Soul, by Jerald Brown/Three Star Review

8802ab332b362855673ff603c3c5af72aadbbd2e♥♥♥

Poetically Baring My Soul was both good and bad. The bad was that I did not think the way that the poems were written were the best that they could be. The poets word usage and form were a bit unappealing. I appreciated his striving towards placing the beauty and mercy of God into every day terms or likenesses, but I simply felt it left me wanting something more. Honestly speaking, the form and wording were a bit juvenile. The joy in receiving God that I believe the poet was trying to display did not seem to come from the depths of his soul, but instead seemed rather forced. Now, I mentioned that there was good also. I truly enjoyed the fact that the poet put so much effort forth into depicting his personal relationship with God, and being a Christian myself, I always appreciate those who try to spread the word of the gospel. There were also individual poems within the text which I felt were very well written or exposed true depth of emotion. If you enjoy a christian book or poetry (and are not a finicky poetry reader like myself) I would recommend this book to you.

Savannah, by Malobi Sinha- Three Stars

61JVmu-xwuL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA318_PIkin4,BottomRight,-18,2_AA300_SH20_OU01_♥♥♥

Savannah is a collection of poetry that I did not particularly enjoy, but I did not exactly dislike either. I guess you could say that it was just ‘not my cup of tea.’ It was neither fantastic nor dreadful, rather falling somewhere in-between. I believe my biggest problem was that the poetry seemed forced. I do, however, appreciate the unique styling of the poet and the originality of each poem. I can see why others would enjoy the poetry, and, after all, poetry is a very subjective type of reading. I was just not particularly moved.
