Smashwords book reviews by Amber Polo

  • Stories We Keep: A Yoga as Muse Anthology on Dec. 14, 2011

    Vital voices of five story keepers flow like a warm vinyasa revealing raw emotion, sometimes mystical, and always authentic. Five of the three pieces are excerpts from unpublished novels that hopefully will soon flame in full. Each writer came alive in her answers to questions posed. What tied her yoga practice to her writing and who she is in other roles, what brings her to the fire, and how she likes to cook her yams. I’ve always considered yams the perfect writers’ food, forming an easy snack or filling meal. Prepared ahead and then topped with sugary maple syrup, tangy ginger marmalade, sweet apricot jam, or a spicy salsa, they satisfy, nourish, and feed the senses, like this YAM anthology.
