By Odyssa

My first self-published book, Like A New Sun Rising: A Collection of Poems on Love, is finally out. It's now available on Amazon and other leading retailers of ebooks.


I received an overwhelming response for this book when I released it last month and I can't be grateful enough to everyone who bought copies of the ebook and paperback version, shared the book on their social media, sent their congrats messages, and left the book a review on Amazon. THANK YOU. 

Philippine orders

I need to figure out a way to have the books available for easy ordering here in the Philippines. So far, I use a Google Form for the orders and communicate via Messenger. But maybe having it available via Shopee is better?Got any suggestions?

It gives me goosebumps to see my poems printed and...well, now in a form of a book that people are now holding! It's nice to see it on my shelf with some of my favorite books. 

The book has reached Germany! Thank you for the love, Anna!

A few lines

Like a lamppost on the street that lights up my face,

your presence is fuel to these burning flames.

Your truths come with lies but it's your word I believe.

Our hands fit perfectly like threads women weave.


All my books will be featured in my Amazon author page. Other details of my books are in the Books page (my favorite section of this website heehee). Onward to the next book!
