My epic poetic horror tale, “Only If” received its second five-star review from Realistic Poetry International…


Review of Only If by Ariana R Cherry

Ariana’s poetry epic “Only If” is a tragic tale of love, friendship, betrayal, and toxic jealousy that leaves you speechless! Shocking emotional twists spiral the lives of three individuals, Bill, Michael, and Clara, into a loathing cyclone of inescapable misery and despair. Severed hearts and heightened emotions then inevitably lead to a dark, cold, and lonely prison cell where Bill, an innocent man, is locked away as a prisoner for a crime he did not commit….(Click here to continue reading the review).

Interested in reading, “Only If” to see what the excitement is all about?  

Only $5.99 at Amazon- available in paperback and on Kindle.  Click here to  buy “Only If.”


I was interviewed at the Read Write Club website and asked a series of questions- some of them asked about how I was inspired, what I am currently reading and upcoming projects…

Fears of a writer…


I’m afraid I’m not any good.”
None of my books are selling…

I must not be any good…

I just wrote something new.
What if nobody likes it?

I’m afraid I’m not any good…

What will people think of me after they read my new book?
Does this story make me sound insane?

Am I insane?

I’m afraid I’m not any good…

Will my book ever be sold in a book store?
And when it does – will I be able to leave the store –
or will I stand guard all day –
just to see if anybody buys it?

Or will the customers know I’m THAT author-
because of my obvious goofy grin.

I’m afraid I’m not any good…

Will anyone ever read what I write….
and like it?
Or will they look at me and
or pat me on the back …hopefully?

I’m afraid I’m not any good…

Will I be one of those authors whose
work is found…
after I’m dead?

I’m afraid I’m not any good…

Will I ever be read?

(Ariana R. Cherry 2017)


I’ve always said that I don’t write to get rich… I write just so that perhaps I may inspire others – or to just share a story or two….Poetry seems to be the language in which I do that best…

While I have not made a best seller list – (which – would be a total dream of mine) nor have I gotten rich (far and few royalties here and there), there have been some people reading my work as of recent – and it makes me happy that others are taking time out of their schedule to do so.

I have received a few reviews recently and am quite happy with what they have had to say. I never knew if my writing was actually any good or not… I know there will be those who may not enjoy my work (which is fine), but it has been nice to read positive reviews… It inspires me to keep on writing and share the stories & poems which I have to tell…

If you are interested in reading the reviews I have received (most I have already posted on here before), you can see them on my blog by clicking on the link below:

Thank you to those who continue to read what I write…I really do appreciate it.
