The book

A friend of mine said I should start off with a novel, and maybe if it fits the story put some of my poems into it, instead of trying to write a book of poetry, publishing that, and selling it.  It makes sense from a marketing, and logistical sense. Poetry in this day and age is hard to sell, and is almost a dead artform.

With me it’s not about the fame or money, I just want a book out there published whether its self-published or not, to say hey I was here on this planet. To have something out there saying there was once a man named Christopher Cavelle, and he liked poetry enough to write a book.

  1. Yeah, I agree with whoever told you that. Lets be completely honest here. Poetry is dead. Unless you have some ribaldry limericks that weave penis and tits into clever rhymes, no one is going to read it.

  2. I agree also. Good luck Riv! I know you will write a great novel.
