Book Release!! More than Coffee: Memories in Verse and Prose

I am very excited to announce the release of my new book, More than Coffee: Memories in Verse and Prose.”


From the early woes of childhood and teen years, this collection of stories and poems paints a picture of young dreams and fears. But as adulthood sets in, these dreams and fears change. More than Coffee touches on love and loss, nature and endurance, marriage and parenting. In these memories, humor diffuses fear and taking risks proves to be a powerful method in boosting self-confidence. Through it all, whether in the wilderness near a sparkling lake or in the comfort of home, there’s nothing like a good cup of coffee. A poignant and reflective collection of verse and prose that is best enjoyed sipping your favorite coffee roast.

  2. Lauren, I’m so proud of you! Woo-hoo! Happy book release. I’m heading to Amazon and sharing on social media.
    If you can give me 3 “random reader things” I’ll also feature you on an episode of The Armadillo Files.
    Wishing you huge success. Hugs on the wing.

      • I love that this book is a bit different with the short memoir element. And I’m still walking on Cloud 9 from the positive responses. I’ll enjoy the ride while it lasts and look forward to reading your email, Betty. Love and hugs, dear friend! πŸ’—

  3. CONGRATULATIONS, Lauren!! πŸ˜€πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ˜€πŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŒ»πŸŒΊ This is fantastic and wow, I imagine you’re on a high as you release your latest book. I LOVE the blurb, so welcoming as you invite us to sit down with a cuppa, and almost have a ‘chat’ with you, whilst perusing your work. Wishing ‘More Than Coffee’ – and you – an exciting journey into the world of publication! hugs xx ❀️

    • Thanks again, Annika! I love your description of the blurb, exactly what I wanted to convey. I appreciate your wonderful wishes and your support! Big hugs, dear friend. ❀️❀️❀️

  4. I’m so excited for you, and it may sound weird, but I’m so proud of you! I know how hard it is to put together a book of your heartfelt poems. I know your talent and I feel like I know YOU (and am always so grateful for our meet up at the Marin County library and your amazing support). Your book is in my Kindle. I can’t wait to read it !!! xoxo ❀

    • Thanks so much, Arnav! I appreciate your visit, and if you get a chance to read my book, I hope you enjoy not only the poetry but also the short memoirs. Thanks again for stopping by!

  5. OMG! Congratulations, Lauren!
    This sounds absolutely lovely.
    I shared on Twitter.
    I would buy an EBook, but I have been boycotting Amazon for over 5 years.
    I’ve got a Kobo account, but I hear it is a bit fussy for the authors to load up on it.
    Anyway….YAY!!!!!!! xoxo

I appreciate your thoughts!
