No. I have been a part of many poetry and story anthologies, previously.

4. What are the poems/story in ‘BOOK TITLE’ about?

I have been given two sections, one being heartbreak and confession and the other being optimism. Both are way opposite of each other but an essential part of anyone’s life. They need to know that a heartbreak is not the end and stay optimistic.

Thank you for inspiring me to pass the phase of life when I had no one, but a fictional you.
