New ideas for Books & Collections



My muse seems to be working overtime…

While I have my own books and poetry collections to put together and our authors/anthologies from Cherry House Press to still work on. … I continue to get more ideas for other possible books…. I am not complaining about this “problem” though – just trying to figure out when I will get them all done….

My latest idea is this and I am looking for input- since it seems after research – it has been done many times…. And my new idea will actually be moving to a new genre that I have not really written much for: Religion/Spirituality…. Although – I do have one poetry collection from a few years ago that might fall into this genre….

So I have two ideas…..

(1)…. We have read first person accounts and stories about Jesus’s life from thousands of years ago in the Bible. I would like to put together a collection of modern day personal encounters with Jesus that people have experienced in their lives. I’d like stories of how he is still working in the lives of people today. Sometimes – I think it helps develop the faith of others when they read or hear personal stories. The thing is – this type of book has been published quite a few times…. How could I make this different – compared to other books?… (this is what I am thinking right now)….

(2). I would like to write a short non-fiction book with my interpretation of stories from Jesus’s life…. But perhaps – maybe in poetic form? (Or has this already been done?)….

These books of course, probably won’t be worked on until much later-as I have several things I need to think about…and one would require submissions and some research…..But if anyone has any thoughts or suggestions – I’d be happy to hear them! 

Comment below if you have input or ideas…..

(And yes , I know it’s strange…I have written for the genres of horror and poetry … And now….I’m venturing into religion/spirituality. I am a very flexible person and like to spread my wings)…..I am indeed…not “genre” confused….lol   Just enjoy a good writing challenge.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
