So often we read books and have wonderful comments we'd wish to share with the author, other purchasers or potential buyers; yet there's no place to do so. I would love to hear your thoughts on this project, so feel free to post your feelings below!

I purchased Pink Pearls & Red Stilettos at the Book Release and have already read it twice. So many of these poems speak to my soul. Erika, I do not know you personally but your work is amazing. I pray God continues to Bless you with these pearls of wisdom as they have transformed my life. I was on the brink of breaking down and this book saved me from suicide. I am grateful to my friend from dragging me out the house and to you for letting God use you.
Thank you.

Janet,

Your comment has touched me so, you have no idea. Through tear stained eyes, I reply because this is why I write. I thank God for allowing me to be a vessel used by Him at a time when you needed it most... Keep pushing my sister, brighter days or on the horizon!
Be Blessed, Stay Encouraged & Do NOT give up!

E, my friend, my mentor let me say this: First thank you for always including me in your releases. Yesterday I was feeling some kind of way at work, and I picked up your book. I've always thought you were a great writer, BUT WITH THIS NEW BOOK, YOU'VE BECOME A BEAST IN MY EYES!!! If I told you it took me a full hour to read this masterpiece would you belive that? TFBJ was a great book also, but this one was more personal, and I could see it with every single word your wrote. There are 2 poems that just set it off for me "Priceless" & the "Alphabet Soup" OMGGG! I don't want to waste too much of your time but sister friend please continue to do what it is YOU DO. This was an EXCELLENT 2nd edition/volume to the Dressing Room. Now I'm waiting on what's next!!!

Nickie,

Thanks so much for your wonderful words. I am both honored and flattered! I am glad that you like it. Those are two of my favorite poems... I love Alphabet Soup because it stretched me as a writer. Finishing that poem let me knwo I could write almost anything poetically... There's more on the horizon my friend.... Just wait and see!

I have been a fan of yours since the Spoken Word Night on Fridays at the Red Star Gallery. It inspiring to read words simply put but have deep meaning. It is very obvious you let go of the "form and fashion" that sometimes accompanies spoken word and let your readers and hearers see the real you. This is such an inspiration for me to proceed with my dream of publishing. Yes, the fellas are reading and understanding your words :)
