Savannah author and poet Aberjhani, known to some as “Skylark,” recently spread his literary wings a little wider by joining the collective of writers featured in Amazon.com’s Amazon Connect Authors Program . In addition, his spoken word single, “An Angel for New Orleans” (from The Goddess and the Skylark, Dancing through the Word Labyrinth CD with Nordette Adams and Mark Rockeymoore) has made the play list of a number of independent radio stations.
“They say good things come in pairs, or sometimes threes,” said Aberjhani, “so I guess I’m in one of those periods because I also recently completed my novel, The Black Skylark Z-Ped Music Player, and am now in process of looking at publishing options for it. On top of all that, National Poetry Month is only a week away so I’m gearing up for that too.”
As a member of Amazon Connect, the author is able to interact with readers and fellow writers through blog postings presented on his profile page as well on the pages of his individual books. In addition to his blog and book titles, the profile page includes links to his reviews on the site. Most recently on the page he has posted reviews of the movies “Blood Diamond” and “Babel.”
“I actually have more reviews under my first Amazon.com page but haven’t found a way yet to integrate those into my Amazon Connect profile,” said Aberjhani. “I placed my review of Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Borat’ on AuthorsDen because I could do more with it here.”
Having completed his first novel, Aberjhani said he is now looking forward to concentrating on several other projects, including completing a nonfiction work on life in Savannah, staring on his next novel, and completing a manuscript of poetry based on his angel series.
“Every time I think my conversation with angels has ended, it actually goes a bit deeper,” said Aberjhani. “That’s one reason I established the Songs of the Angelic Gaze page at Poet Seers. And my Visions of a Skylark Dressed in Black web site currently features a beautiful song by Ash Ferry called ‘A Million Angels.’ It’s one of those things that found me––something I’m grateful for––instead of the other way around. Without question, at least one or two of my National Poetry Month poems posted on AD will be in the Angelic Gaze mode.”
