Water in a Wineglass is a love letter. Beverly Tan's debut book, available April 1, pieces together words heard too often and brings relatable peace to weathered hearts.
I am in the words I leave behind, the annotations scribbled in margins
I am from the desire for red-blooded life and the hunger for success, fueled only by passion.
I come from the chances I take, the hopes that have been smashed like diamonds on diamond, the risks that burn the dreams into the shadows that fade with dawn's purple glow.
I do not come from the numbers on the scale, the tiger stripes on my hips, or the words that once burned. Those can't solely define me.
With her CrowdRaising campaign coming to a close, Beverly Tan thanks her Crowd in this update video and talks about her future plans for "Water in a Wineglass."
Water in a Wineglass is a love letter. It plays a song from the heartstrings of the author's mind and wraps around timeless words we've heard at some point or another. I love you, I don't, and everything in between. It's the kissing of souls and the ripping of hearts blended into the eye of a hurricane.
I'd love to share my poetry with you.
