My wordpress friends, first, I’d like to thank you for following me on here and giving me such a boost of confidence in my own work. As part of my publishing project and as a way to put my work out there, I decided to self-publish my poetry. It wasn’t easy, especially all the formatting necessary to create a beautiful ebook – but I made it.
Vagary: an erratic, unpredictable, or extravagant manifestation, action, or notion (Merriam-Webster)
Vagary is my journey from teens to adulthood, an apology & explanation to the people around me. It is, fundamentally, a coming-of-age collection of poems.
Growing up in Greece, the second half of my teens was marked by the beginning of a severe economic crisis that fundamentally changed the way I saw the world & myself. The poems are my thoughts and fears, my dreams and hopes, the journey from apathy to my personal political awakening.
Before every section, there are prologues about what inspired me to write these poems and puts them in a context.
My ebook is available in almost every country in the world via the relevant Kindle store. It costs just $0.99 or £0.99.
It is also on Smashwords, where you can download it for free until 31/7 using the coupon code you wlll find here.
