I Wrote This For You: Just The Words. Now in print.

This is my horrible hand writing. 
This printed edition contains around 400 (I'm not sure, I haven't counted) entries from the I Wrote This For You project, including many from the first book, many entries that were written after the first book was published, and several things I wrote while I was away that only appear here in this book.

While it focuses on the words, it does feature some selected photography at the start of each chapter from my friend and traveling companion, Jon, the photographer.

I hope it means as much to you when you read it as it did to me when I wrote it.

My best,

You are not what you think about doing tomorrow.

You are what you start to do, today.

I Wrote This For You: Just The Words - eBook

After a a traumatic year, it gives me no small sense of relief to know that as of today, the eBook for I Wrote This For You: Just The Words is available - here on amazon, here on Barnes & Noble, here on Kobo and it'll be available soon on iTunes

The print edition will also be out soon, if you'd prefer to hold it in your hands and draw on it with a pen.  

Here's what my publisher says about it (Thank you for all your hard work Michelle).

"The follow-up to the #1 bestseller, I Wrote This For You: Just The Words presents twice the number of entries with over 400 works from the internationally acclaimed poetry and photography project; including several new and never before seen poems. 

While focussing on the words from the project, new photography launches each section which portray everyone's journey through the world: Love Found, Being In Love, Love Lost, Hope, Despair, Living and Dying."

We made this to compliment the original book, not to replace it. 

The original book was published in 2011 and contains nearly 200 of what we considered to be the best photographs and entries from the project - and because of the nature of full colour printing, it costs around $25.00. 

This contains more than 400 entries (many from the original book, many never printed and quite a few that are completely new that were written while I was away) and only a few black and white photographs, at the start of each chapter - which will cost around $10.00 when it's printed. 

The book has also been divided up differently, as apposed to the story I tried to tell with the first book, this simply groups the entries into what they focus on; love, state of mind or living and dying. It's designed to be something that you find something in. 

The continued support of the amazing community that has sprung up around I Wrote This For You over all these years is what made the first book such a phenomenal success, please continue to spread the word about this book, repost this to your blogs and tell your friends about it too as the more successful it is, the more we can create. 

Thank you for everything you are. 

It's good to be back,

The Shapes Left Behind

You should not look for me in the places I once was. Look for me in the places I am now. In soft rain.

On starlit oceans.
