Please describe what the story/book is about in one sentence. Dew and Daze is a collection of poems, wherein each poem holds a completely different meaning from the other. Q.

Though e-books are gaining popularity, I don't think they are the 'future' per se, because there is something about a printed word that will never die. The satisfaction, that comes from reading a book as a physical object, is I believe, unbeatable. Q. Did you have a platform in place? On this topic, what are you doing to build a platform and gain readership? No, I did not have a platform in place, because these poems are not genre specific; they cater to all kinds of readers. Though I have been promoting my work here and there, I am kind of old school when it comes to marketing and promoting my work.
