UPDATES ABOUT THE BOOK
My first self-published book, Sympathy for the Strong Ones, is still on pre-sale on until 6/4. Any orders placed after presale should expect shipping delays because well, my child is coming in hot.
Sympathy for the Strong Ones is a collection of short essays and poems scribbled with Soul and sarcasm about healing, adult neurosis about the future through the eyes of a elder millennial on the brink of motherhood, and stream of consciousness style prose.
You might laugh, you might cry, you might even hate it; any which way you’ll feel it.
You can now grab it on my website, www.vanessaroselima.com.
