The Shy Poet Emerges, by Chasity Conley, is an intriguing book of poetry written in Chasity's unique and inspiring style. Chasity has a huge following on Facebook for her poetry page. I wish the number of my followers on my author page even came close to her loyal fans. But that means she is doing something right. A lot of somethings.
If you love poetry like I do, this is a must read. Gain insight into a fresh and vibrant young lady who writes verse from her soul.
That's a beautiful thing.
I wrote the above yesterday on the Visionary Press Collaborative website. I'm posting again over here on my website today because this great book has shot to the top of the charts on Amazon for Women's Poetry! Wow! I am so proud of my friend for what she has accomplished. Notice that the reviews below are from folks who have purchased this great collection. This is not a book slapped up for free. The rankings are for Paid in Kindle Store. This tells me that Chasity is already an established poet and will be for as long as she wishes.
Also, I want to thank Rebecca Boucher for her hard work in editing and formatting this fantastic tome. There are a number of gorgeous photographs she had to incorporate here. Rebecca happens to be one of my editors as well. Do I know how to pick good people or what?
Another point I want to make is that this great collection and its success is not an overnight happening. For quite some time now, Chasity has, without going the spamming route, made a name for herself on Facebook. She has 1834 people who have liked her The Shy Poet page. Amazing! Her Facebook link is
All of us should be inspired by what Chasity has done, not only with her creative genius, but with her selfless work ethic.
I salute you, Chasity Conley!

Chasity has a clear and simple style that expresses a range of emotions. I saw my own feelings reflected in many of them. Will definitely be reading these again and again
