Bookish Sneak Peeks, Twitter Chats, and Giveaways, Oh My!

Today I get the pleasure of sponsoring Cendrine Marrouat’s book release celebration for her latest book, Life’s Little Things: The quotes! I hope you will join us on Twitter for a book chat as Cendrine answers questions. The chat takes place today, July 25th, at 3pm ET. A random participant will also win a PDF copy of Life’s Little Things. To connect with Marrouat, me, and other participants, use the #lifeslittlethingsbook hashtag. Her Twitter username is @cendrinemedia and mine is @scifistone.

Many of you know that I have been on a bit of a hybrid literature kick lately, enjoying the poetic memoir of Maggie Nelson, the beauty of Debbie Weingarten’s lyric essay, “The Mule Deer,” and the fragmented style of Lisa O’Neill. Marrouat’s release of Life’s Little Things is perfectly timed to feed my obsession with literature that pushes the boundaries to accomplish beautiful art.  You absolutely must read her book.

Cendring 1Marrouat brings her breathtaking photography together with carefully crafted prose that bring into relief the deeper meaning in the images all around us. All too often we rush about this world, taking for granted the importance of the small things in life. The interplay between the words and images encourages the reader to slow down and see with new eyes.

The book’s prose carry a weight and power reminiscent of Kahlil Gibran. Each line speaks to the heart and encourages self-reflection and renewal.

Before she was a photographer, Marrouat was a poet, and those earlier pursuits have had a clear impact on her writing. Her language flows off the page, evoking emotion and pulling the reader along.

Cendring 2Each photo is carefully composed and gives the reader with a stunning lens to view the world through, enhanced by Marrouat’s eloquent words. Don’t miss this delightful piece of literature. You can purchase Life’s Little Things: The Quotes through Blurb.

Marrouat will be joining us again at Tibetan Lemonade on Tuesday, August 8th, 2017 to discuss her artistic process, finding her style, and the parallels between photography and writing. Be sure to tune in and check out what she has to say. She will be back later this year to talk about putting together press kits. While you wait for her to share her wisdom with us, make sure to check out her websites,  Social Media Slant and Cendrine Marrouat Photography. Don’t forget to join us for the Twitter chat for your chance to win a PDF copy of Life’s Little Things.
