Roger E. Brunerabout this book: Although I'm a novelist now, I've written a number of short pieces over the years. Everything from poetry to short stories, dramatic monologues, and even a personal essay or two. Many of them have been published in denominational magazines, local newspapers, and free regional magazines.
I'd been looking for an inexpensive-yet-personal gift for the people who endorsed my latest novel. Why not self-publish a collection of some of these short pieces?
And so I did. CreateSpace was great to work with.
I enjoy photography, and one of my best-ever pictures is of an iris still dripping with early morning moisture. Not only did it make sense to use that as my cover photo, it also gave me the idea of calling my collection Yesterday's Blossoms. I thought that would help to denote the fact that these were all older writings.
I no longer write poetry, and I seldom write anything but novels and blog posts, either. But I have a special fondness for the pieces I've included in Yesterday's Blossoms.
Incidentally, one criticism I have of many "independently published" books is the poor editing. But since I wanted the selections in Yesterday's Blossoms to appear just as they had in print originally, I opted not to do any editing.
