Debut Collection Set to Release on Star Wars Day

Dear Readers and Beloved Community,

I am thrilled to share with you the exciting news about my upcoming debut poetry collection, “Sunflower Shin Splints,” set to be released on none other than Star Wars Day, May 4th, 2024. As we prepare to embark on this literary journey together, I am filled with gratitude for the support and anticipation surrounding this project.

A New Hope for Every Heart

“Sunflower Shin Splints” is not just a collection of verses; it’s a tapestry of emotions, experiences, and, most importantly, a beacon of hope. Inspired by my journey as an LGBTQ+ mother of three, a sexual assault and domestic violence survivor, these poems delve into the depths of the human soul.

In the spirit of Star Wars, this collection serves as a force for good, providing A New Hope for trauma survivors and those navigating the complexities of life. Each poem is a reminder that even in the darkest moments, there is the potential for growth, healing, and renewal. I hope these words become a source of solace and empowerment for readers from all walks of life.

May the Fourth Be with You

Choosing Star Wars Day for the release holds a special significance. I have been a huge Star Wars fan since I was a little girl and my dad took me to a special anniversary screening of A New Hope at our local cineplex. And for me, I see this book as A New Hope for this next chapter of my healing journey. 

A Celebration of Authenticity

As we approach the release date, I want to express my deepest gratitude for the unwavering support from the LGBTQ+ community, fellow activists, and all those who champion the power of storytelling. This collection is not just mine; it belongs to each reader who finds solace, inspiration, or a reflection of their own journey within its pages.

Prepare to embark on a poetic adventure on May 4th, 2024, as “Sunflower Shin Splints” blooms into the world. Together, let us celebrate the human spirit’s resilience, authenticity’s beauty, and hope’s enduring power.

May the words within these pages be a guiding force, offering a new hope to all who turn their hearts toward them.

Imperfectly yours,

Siobhan Darling
