The following is a post from my friend Romeo Barnes. As a member of the blogosphere, in no way do I want to discount the credibility of online journalism. However, something can be said about the increased level of difficulty involved with self-publishing your own book. Romeo has put himself out there with this newest book, and I commend him for it.
Emotions: Better Days is the second volume in the poetry series Emotions. The first volume titled Emotions: The Beginning of Turmoil was released April 24, 2009 and is available on amazon.com you can find it here. The Emotions series is about me growing up. From the ages of fourteen to eighteen I was a troubled and lonely person. It was a very unhappy time. Many people ask me why release this now; as it seems out of place as it appears to be written by a 23 year-old. However, the truth is I finished writing the Emotions series when I was eighteen. I’m releasing it now because I feel it’s important for people to see my growth not only as a writer, but as a person.
