Romancing September Across the World – Day 11 Pamela Beckford

7 Comments

Welcome to Day 11 of the 2nd Annual Romancing September Across The World Blog Tour. I’ve teamed up with Rosie Amber again this year. We’re promoting 30 awesome romance authors in 30 days. Help us out by cross promoting when you can and check out these authors. 

Don’t forget to go over to Rosie Amber’s page and check out her page too.

Today my guest author is Pamela Beckford and I want to thank her for blogging with me today. Here is a little about her and her book Love: Lost and Found.

Love Lost and Found Pamela Beckford

What inspired you to write this book?

I had published my first book just a few months earlier and I was being asked when the next collection was going to be released. I had really thought the first collection was going to be the only collection I ever published. I still hadn’t started to take myself seriously as a poet. Yet I continued writing poems so I had a ready collection to build on.

 

What’s your favorite part of this book and why?

I love every single poem. They are like my children – I couldn’t just choose one. They are each special in their own way.

 

What is your philosophy on writing and life?

I don’t know that I have a philosophy per se. But I think if someone is going to write, they need to write what they have within themselves. I have tried other types of poetry besides the love poems and they just don’t feel natural – they feel forced. So, my personal philosophy is to stick with what seems to write itself for me. My personal philosophy of life is to live each day to its fullest and fill your life with love, laughter, family and friends.

 

Name your three favorite books that you’ve written – feel free to list buy links.

This is easy since I’ve only published three books to date. But yes, I’m working on the next collection which I hope to publish just before Valentine’s Day 2015.

Love: Lost and Found http://www.amazon.com/Love-Lost-Found-Pamela-Beckford/dp/1500279250/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1406058482&sr=1-2

 

What are your goals for this year?

As I mentioned, I want to put together a collection of love poems to release in 2015. I also want to work with new poetry forms. There are dozens of different poetry forms and I love learning new ones. They are challenging, but it forces me to choose words very carefully when I’m limited by syllable counts and rhyming patterns. I want to continue honing my craft because I know I can only get better from here.

 

If you had to give one piece of advice what would it be?

Follow your heart.

 

Love: Lost and Found

Love: Lost and Found is filled with poems reflecting the phases of love. There are poems of longing and pain and poems of exhilaration and joy. A collection of over 90 poems representing over a dozen different forms of poetry (including descriptions of those forms).

  1. Good luck with writing in new poetry forms it will be awesome.

  2. Love that title, Pamela.
    I do admire poets. You have to be so economical with words!

  3. I love poets too, as I started with poems. However not love ones. Nature and philosophy on life.
    I admire your courage to try to make a name in such a materialistic world with lovely crafted lines. Best of luck Pamela!

  4. Reblogged this on Realm of Romantic Mystical Manuscripts and commented:

  5. I liked your one piece of advice you listed, “Follow your Heart”. There is so many things that go on in life and I always try to follow my heart, and try not to allow my mind make the decision. Because when all is said and done, I want to know I made the decision wholeheartedly.
