“Adolescent Angst” is in the Publishing Stage!

I’m so happy to report that “Adolescent Angst” is in the publishing stage! I’m currently finalizing the details with the publishers and I will provide links once the different editions are live. In the meantime, here is a description of the book and the cover:

Ever wonder what the mind of a teenager is like…especially a rebellious, troubled teenager? The poetry in this book, which I wrote in my teen years, honestly shares my thoughts and feelings when I was a teen struggling to live with my parents’ strict rules. Poetry was my “therapy” at the time.

If you are a teenager and wish to connect with someone who is going through the same tough times that you are, this is the book for you. Poems such as: The Chamber, Expression, Authority, and My “Other” Side, reveal my inner-workings as an independence-driven, identity-seeking adolescent.

This book contains twenty-two free-verse poems, written when I was a teen, and a Foreword, Afterword, and About the Poet, written by myself twenty years later.

Get a glimpse into the mind and emotions of a distressed teenager. Learn what it’s like to have overprotective parents and emotional turmoil, and be able to connect with someone who does. Whether you are a parent with a struggling teen, or you are that struggling teen, this book will help you get through your challenges.

New News!

It’s been a long time since my last post and that’s because I’ve been working hard on my books. After publishing Articles for the Mind, and republishing my four other books, I became very busy with letting the world know about them – through interviews, book listings on websites, social media, book reviewers, and probably more!

I also resumed editing Chronicles of a Troubled Girl, and started a book of my teenage poetry called Adolescent Angst:

Lastly, I started a newsletter. If you would like to read the first issue, here is the link. If you would like to sign up for the newsletter, which is an occasional email about really exciting news and book discounts, fill out the form in the top-right side of my website here.

I’m really excited about my future publishing projects, and I’m really happy to be sharing the news with you!

Review of “It’s Only Natural”

It’s Only Natural by C.M. Truxler is a collection of poetry written with the theme of nature. Every poem speaks positively of the simple beauties found in rural surroundings. The poems are distinct and like short stories about various wonders of the natural world.

I smiled while reading It’s Only Natural. The words and language are flowing and poetic, and the poems reflect beauty. While reading this book of poetry I was gently guided to various parts of the world where I got to experience the beauty of life and the environment.

I recommend It’s Only Natural for its beautiful poetry, and the feeling of peace that enveloped me while reading, as well as the inner peace that I was left with afterwards. Don’t take my word for it; get yourself a copy. You will be happy you did.

You can preview and purchase It’s Only Natural here: Smashwords, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Lulu.
