Book Update for March 2022

By Odyssa

March 30, 2022

This month had been full of surprises which I will tell more about in the coming weeks and months.

I'm being taught, life is unfolding, and I'm finally realizing the truth about duality: that a war is happening on one side of the world while I write this post in a quaint little cafe not worrying about where to sleep tonight. 

There's pain and joy, darkness and light, certainty and ambiguity, heartbreak and love, abundance and lack happening all at the same time. Two places separated by oceans and lands but under the same sky.

These are my thoughts for today.


Starting off from my book update back in January, I found a reliable book printer/publisher from Quezon City and the quality of their print is amazing. The size of the book is slightly smaller than the Amazon print size, which is no problem at all. Size doesn't matter in books. What we look for are words that resonate with us. Right?

My books are now being sold in UWU books, this 'smol-time' bookstore for self-published authors/local books.

The third book off of Rhymes and Recollections series, "Hands That Carry: A Collection of Poems on Family" is now open for pre-order in Amazon

Never did I imagine writing about family as much as I have, but with all that's happened the past few months - sickness, isolation, loss, and our own messy relationships with one another - there's not a better time to do so. 

The print version of this book is now in production phase and I feel lucky to be working with the same people from the last two. 

P.S. I added new books to my list of book recommendations.
