I still have 15 copies of Unquiet Minds at home. I can sign them and send them wherever you are.

And here is a little secret. There are 3 typos in that version of the book. The typos were corrected. If you order you copy with me, you will receive a rarity. Doesn’t that sound like a great deal?

It’s also available on Amazon as paperback and ebook.

Go grab your copy!



It was by sheer coincidence that I noticed a five star review for my book Unquiet Minds on It is the first review on Amazon, and I have no idea who wrote it. I think, I don’t know them, but I am very grateful for these beautiful and kind words.

Are you curious yet? Here is an Amazon link: Unquiet Minds

But you can also get in touch with me, and I’ll send you a signed edition.

I am really proud of those five stars 🙂

Thank you.

Unquiet Minds

My book is still available as a paperback on Amazon… It is a collection of poetry I wrote over the course of the last six years. If you enjoy my poems on this site, you will like the book too. I looks very nice too.

If you prefer a signed version, get in touch via and we will figure something out. I ship worldwide.

Thank you,


Unquiet Minds and Writing Notes

It’s me again… your favourite poet. Today I shipped 10 copies of Unquiet Minds and two of Writing Notes all around the globe.
Unquiet Minds – amazon               Writing Notes – amazon

Notice the different names… one is my real name, the other is my alias and the name of this blog too.

I offer signed copies of my books. Shipping in Europe is 2,90€. Shipping to the rest of the world is 4,10€. Payment should be made with PayPal.

I am still in the early days of this all and I am figuring it out as I am progressing. Learning by doing, it’s called, isn’t it.

When I stood in line at the post-office this afternoon, I had a thought that isn’t leaving me ever since: Evidence of my existence is being spread across the world right now. Isn’t that weird? My book will be in the hands of a reader in Brazil. His friends might be curious about the cover and even if they are not… if he doesn’t throw the book away, if it is not destroyed or sold into a different country, there will be a copy of my book in Brazil. It is such a humbling feeling. Exciting too.

Today, I shipped out to New South Wales (Australia), Brazil, Colorado (US), Texas (US), Manchester (UK), 2x London (UK), New York (US), Canada, Greece, Luxembourg. All these people will receive their signed copy of my book with a personal note inside.

If you want one too, get in touch… and we will make it happen.

I was approached to pay 100$ for 4 reviews… I declined. I know that I need publicity for my books, but I would rather have genuine reviews from people who willingly emerge themselves in my poetry than any other review.

Also, I finally dared to share the book with my family and friends on FB. The support was surprising. A member of our regional council offered to sell Unquiet Minds at our town hall in support of the local arts. Apparently, I am only one of two published authors in my municipality. We’ll see where that leads.

And, I have to admit that I am a huge coward though… My neighbour offered to sell my book to friends and whoever enters her bar. I don’t know her well. Only drank twice with her, lol. I didn’t dare to bring her the copies she asked for. I feel weird doing it, although I also know that her offer is genuine. Just the act of ringing the bell at a neighbour’s who you don’t know all that well and asking for such a huge favour… it’s not in my nature. So, if you would like to help me out here, be my guest. I am one of those who stands in her own ways too many times. But, whatever… this is not one of those posts.

Remember, shipping worldwide. Signed if you want to. Or simply order on amazon. It is good contemporary poetry. Give it a try.

Thank you, Cathy


Did you know? I published two paperback poetry collections this month.

Ever since, I feel as if I am getting my balance back. I did something that means a lot to me. I fulfilled my own dream instead of waiting for someone else to do it. And it feels amazing.

Although… I am a bad business woman. I don’t make money and I don’t advertise nearly enough. Instead, I ordered a bunch of copies of Unquiet Minds, and I am giving them away (for free). See? Bad business woman. I invite you to visit Amazon and buy your copy, or get in touch and we can figure something out. It is great poetry from the heart, and it looks great too. Promised.

So yes, I am way better than I was last month. Thank you for your support. I appreciate it more than you know.


Unquiet Minds…

… is available for your Kindle now. Yes, you read that right. Come on. You know you want it. There is a possibility to take a look inside the book.

Go, see for yourself.

Also, thank you to the recent Smashwords purchasers. You are heroes. You put a smile on a tired face. Thank you.


Thank you…

To the first person who “bought” Unquiet Minds on Smashwords. 🙂

I didn’t mention it before, but it is pay what you want for the ebook. If you can’t or don’t want to pay, then simply reward me with a couple of nice words. My email address is at the end of the book.
