Home: In Tribute of my Father


I am so grateful for the second opportunity to be featured on Brian M. Hayden's blog! He is a dear friend, and the author of The Road to Transplant (and more books) where he takes you along to witness the final mile on his incredible journey to a heart transplant. 

This time, my guest post focused on the opening poems in my book, Home. These poems, and the entire book, is in tribute of my father:

This is the place where he put pen to paper…
But clung to the wall, the shelves are now bare
All that remains of his words is but vapor
All you can spot is but a dent in his chair

Place A Favorite Son on the Shelf of Your Library

Yoo-hoo! Just got this note from the Reference Services in Santa Monica Public Library, regarding A Favorite Son:

"Our materials selection staff has decided to add this title to the collection.  Please be aware it can take several weeks before added items are available for checkout.  In this case, since the book is not available through the Library's usual vendor, Baker & Taylor, there may be an additional delay."

My work relies entirely on word-of-mouth. Your word-of-mouth. So if you wish to help me spread the word, please bring this book to the attention of your own library. Tell the librarian  to order this ★★★★★ book--numerous reviews--so you and other readers may read it.

Mini-Interview about Home

Lia London, the author of full-length novels in a variety of genres, has invited me for a second mini-interview on her site, Clean Indie Reads. Her questions focused this time on my poetry book Home. She also posted her own review of the book, and a review by Hall of Fame Amazon reviewer, Grady Harp:

"There are vignettes, streams of poetry, and scenes of such exquisite depth and beauty that I found myself taken aback at the skill of the writing and the power it had to touch my heart." 

--Lia London, author


"This radiant book is an exploration of the bond between a daughter and father and the book overflows with some of the most eloquent poetic moments in print.  Home is an invitation, a very personal one, and should not be passed over." 

--Grady Harp, Hall of Fame reviewer for Amazon

It was such a pleasure, and an honor too, to be invited for a chat with Lisette Brodey, the author of Crooked MoonMolly Hacker Is Too Picky!  and Squalor, New Mexico.

Just being here, at Lisette Writer's Chateau, makes you feel as if you have arrived from a ride at the French countryside, the gate opens before you and now a place is cleared beside her in front of the fireplace, where a little flame is dancing before your eyes...

Wow! It Has Arrived, It's Finally Here!

This is a magical moment for me, one I have been waiting for! Apart From Love the audiobook edition, is finally out! Highly praised 5-star novel, 48 reviews:

"There is a quality so deep and raw in Apart from Love that it's almost impossible to put this book down. In my opinion, Uvi Poznansky writes like a painter. She starts with a clean canvas and dabs a little paint here and a little paint there as she develops her characters and creates her masterpiece. Her strokes then become broader, more passionate, more vivid and vibrant as she continues to let her characters' stories unfold. She draws you in to a deeper level than you might actually want to go as she ignites the fire to your own love, passions, and fears."

Great Welcome, Great Questions at Author Alliance

I am so thrilled that my interview with the Author Alliance has gone live! I loved the way it opened, with this question:


I understand that your father was a great influence on you becoming a
writer?


I started telling stories and composing poems before I knew how to hold a pen between my fingers. My father, a poet, writer and artist, would write these for me, and even quote words I invented. He would ask me to help him rhyme his poems, and later on, when I was twenty years old, he asked me to give him a selection of my poems, for inclusion in a book of poetry he was about to publish. I regarded my poetry as an intimate expression of my feelings, in response to which he said: “Uvi, once the ink leaves the pen, once the words are on paper, they do not belong to you anymore. They belong to the readers.” So I relented, and he published my poetry. Now, six years after his passing, I have returned the favor, and published his work–the work he kept away from everyone during the last two decades of his life–together with mine, in the poetry book called Home. Home. A simple word; a loaded one. You can say it in a whisper; you can say it in a cry. Expressed in the voices of father and daughter, you can hear a visceral longing for an ideal place, a place never to be found again.

Friday Night We Have a Date

Friday night we have a date
Check your watch... Don't be late!
Just don't ask, Will you be mine?
Here's the bottle: uncork the wine

I'll bring chocolates, no need to cook,
Oh wipe my tears: the audiobook
Is still not here... But luckily
I just enjoy your company

No more sadness, no more blues
Lets put on our dancing shoes! 
Friday night we have a date
Check your watch... Don't be late!

My sculpture, The Dance of the Old Virgin

News Flash about Audiobook Release!

Check it out! This news flash, put together by Erika Goodkin of Literati Consulting PR, has just been released:

Israeli-American Author Releases New Book of Biblical Fiction 


Among other things, this news flash reveals who wrote the praise on the back cover of the print edition of my novel, Apart From Love. Hint: guess who wrote the screenplays for the blockbuster movies 'Every Which Way But Loose', 'Any Which Way You Can' (with Clint Eastwood in the title role), and 'Going Ape' (with Tony Danza in the title role.)

A Must Read

Just discovered a new review of A Favorite Son!


4.0 out of 5 stars A Must ReadMay 11, 2013
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Favorite Son (Kindle Edition)
This book is a superb modern day version of the biblical story of Isaac and Rebecca and their twin sons. It tells of how deceitful and greedy people can be within their own families.

The author also writes poetry and it shows in her beautiful flowing way with words. It's a book to remember!

And what about ♥ Love ♥

This is my watercolor titled A Thousand and One Nights, in which I explored how the roundness of the female figure is complemented and contrasted by the rectangular divisions in the picture plane. Here is Shahrazad, whose life depends on her story-telling ability. If the king is bored with her, he will send her to her death, as he has done with his previous harem girls. As long as he is intrigued by her words, he will let her live. In a way, she is the perfect symbol for what I am doing here: tell a story, and hope it will entertain you.

 "A feast for the armchair psychologist."

Voice of a Kindle Book

I'm waiting to be taken, but now, be forewarned
Don't you dare come near me, or else you'd be scorned--
Unless you delight in contemporary fiction
And enjoy reading a book with detailed scene depiction

If you let me pull you in, deep inside
Until you find yourself there, in my characters' mind
I'll make you burn in hell, ablaze in desire, 
I'll let you swirl like smoke, ever higher and higher

I'll bring you down here: Santa Monica, Venice Beach
For a father-son meeting, with a blame and a breach
You'll hear Lenny, Natasha, Anita and Ben
And be tortured by guilt, again and again  

Find a path to forgiveness, find a way to come clean
Find the words to explain what exactly you mean
Turn page after page, then fall to your knee 
'Cause Apart From Love, no feeling  is free
