Maanarak Is Opening Up Her Soul.

I spoke with Maanarak about her soon-to-be debut book. As authors, we always give a lot of ourselves in our stories and many are biographical.

Maanarak goes even further by writing poetry and these are powerful words that she spins into a tale of past experiences. She opens up her heart and leaves it on the page. Such a gift many would love to possess. Not only does she write this amazing poetry but she illustrates using her unique style to tell the story of the poem. And she doesn’t stop there. With each poem, besides it, she tells the truth behind the words.

If it wasn’t bad enough bearing your soul in poetry, to then write the story of where the words came from, is truly inspiring and terrifying at the same time and I take my hat off to her, (if I was wearing one) for being brave enough to let it all out. She doesn’t hide behind make-believe she tells it exactly how it is and that makes it so raw and honest.
Come and meet Maanarak, the lady Behind The Pen.

You can find Maanarak on Instagram and listen for the announcement of when this more than poetry book will be published.

Addicted To Education

If Amy Rivers had her way, she would stay and keep studying for as long as she’s able. But having your own business, a family, and being a full-time author, has halted her addiction…. for now.

Not only is Amy a successful author, she’s also a pro when it comes to internet marketing. She has a major in Philosophy and Political Science and many other academic achievements and still can’t make up her mind whether to become a lawyer or not.

Amy Rivers writes novels, short stories and personal essays. She is the Director of Northern Colorado Writers, and was chosen as 2021 Indie Author of the Year by the Indie Author Project.

Her novel All The Broken People was recently selected as the Colorado Author Project winner in the adult fiction category. She’s been published in We Got This: Solo Mom Stories of Grit, Heart, and Humor, Flash! A Celebration of Short Fiction, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Nurses, and Splice Today, as well as Novelty Bride Magazine and ESME.com.

In April 2021, Complicit, the first book in the A Legacy of Silence series was published. It recently won 2nd place in the 2021 CIPA EVVY Awards. 

She was raised in New Mexico and now lives in Colorado with her husband and children. She holds degrees in psychology and political science, two topics she loves to write about.
