Denver, CO, January 22, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Author Juan J. Ibarbol jumpstarts his writing career with the launch of his first published book “My Verse” inspired by the interactions of people in Denver and the surrounding areas.
“My Verse” is a collection of Poems written by Ibarbol during 2006 and 2007. The fifty two page book was self published early December 2007 through lulu and is being received well as people find something in the pages that they can relate to their own lives.
“The book gives a quick and succinct account of everyday life.” Ibarbol affirms. The book also contains a few quick thoughts on poetry by the author attempting to reintroduce this form of expression before it goes extinct.
Despite its expected success, the odds of this book being written in the first place were slim. Ibarbol had given up on poetry years ago, and due to a family emergency resulting in the loss of a loved in 2004, he had given up on writing altogether. However, Ibarbol overcame his personal demons and began writing again, this time with a clearer eye to the world, and poetry lovers everywhere will be the better for it.
The book can be purchased through online retailers such Barnes and Noble, Amazon.com, or through the P.O.D. site at Lulu.com keyword Ibarbol. Ibarbol is expected to release a prose work later this year.
