Poets Take a Swipe at Hallmark

Award winning poets Carolyn Howard-Johnson and Magdalena Ball have teamed up to produce a book of love poetry which is anything but syrupy.  The poems explore love from a variety of angles, and offers mature, deep, reflective sentiment for those who want to say something a little richer, a little deeper than simply "I love you."

According to Joyce Mishaan, Associated  Content Producer, "It’s a rough world and it’s easy to look around and feel that love is nothing more than a hopeless cliché."  Cherished Pulse moves beyond those clichés, and explores real love -- the kind of love that may take many years to build. No pussyfooting. No excuses. It's a sensual, beautiful book which can be read again and again.

Of the collection, Howard-Johnson, author of This is the Place, Harkening: A Collection of Stories Remembered, and a poetry collection Tracings, says : "I think there is a market for stuff that doesn't look and feel like Hallmark. I can never find a Hallmark that reads what I'd like to say."

The chapbook is a miracle made possible by the net; the two poets hail from different continents, Ball from Australia and Howard-Johnson from California, USA.

Cherished Pulse, a book of unconventional love poetry, is offered as an e-book, and costs less than a single paper card. It may be printed, and can be combined with a rose or a piece of jewelry for a superb gift.

Magdalena Ball is the author of the poetry collection Quark Soup and her novel Sleep Before Evening is due for publication early in 2007. 

Cherished Pulse also has original paintings by artist Vicki Thomas.
