#NewBook: Life & Soul by Harmony Kent @harmony_kent #Poetry

Hi Everyone! I hope this finds you all well.

I’m super excited to announce I have a new book of poetry coming out!

I was so shocked to discover it is seven years since I published Slices of Soul: Book One in the Soul Poetry Series. Time sure does fly!

As well as sharing my fab news with you all, I guess this is also a cover reveal. Here goes …

About Life & Soul

Life & Soul is the second book in the Soul Poetry Series by acclaimed author Harmony Kent.

This beautiful collection of over fifty poems will take the reader through the highs and lows of everyday life via contemporary poetry in a range of styles and themes. Within these pages, you will find reflections on the Lonely Soul, the Seeking Soul, Brief Soul, Friendly Soul, and the Loving Soul—states of mind and living and longing we each experience over the course of a life.

Life & Soul offers something for lovers of poetry from all walks of life.


Praise for Slices of Soul, Book 1 in the Soul Poetry Series:


 “I found my answer in this wonderful treasure-trove and have already read it three times.” Robert Fear

“I found in Slices of Soul something approaching aesthetic bliss, a sense of being connected in some way to other states – like tenderness, kindness, ecstasy – where art is the norm.” Colm Herron

“A stunning collection of poems that I read in one sitting! Unable to simply put this down until I had read the last. I love the clarity of the short poems, such clear images created in so few words or phrases. Many of them touched my heart and I will be giving them a 2nd and 3rd read!” Audrina Lane


Sneak Peek Look-Inside & Poem for You:

And here’s a sneak peek from the eBook version:

The poem reads: Echoes thunder Through an empty room The noise deafening In its absence   Who can hear These silent screams Or the beat Of this lonely heart   War rages And life goes on Not many can see Past my smile   Buried alive Under the raging river Fighting to Keep my chin up

I’m super buzzed at the look and feel of this poetic collection. However, I’m not sure I’m up to a big launch with tours right now, as my health and energy are up and down, and the longterm steroid therapy is taking its toll. I’m still thinking about the best way forward. However, if any of you would like to help by sharing around the blogosphere, I would be so grateful. 


Universal Pre-Order Link for the Kindle version: http://mybook.to/LifeAndSoul

The plan is for both the paperback and Kindle versions to go on live sale on June 3rd 2022, which happens to be the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee over this side of the pond!

I say ‘plan to go live’ because, all too often, I end up hitting the ‘publish’ button on the paperback by accident, instead of the ‘save as draft’, so it sometimes goes live before the Kindle Pre-Order goes to live sale. Such is life, lols 😂

Once the Kindle version is on live sale, it will also be available to borrow for free via the Kindle Unlimited subscription option.

Thanks for all your support and friendship, everyone! And I’d love to know what you think! Have a wonderful rest of your week 😁

  8. Congratulations, Harmony! It looks absolutely beautiful. I don’t know if this was done on purpose, but the cover reminds me of two people in the yin-yang position. I love it!

  10. Exciting news. I can’t wait to read the collection. Love the abstracted cover. I’m sure people see what they need to see in abstract art, but I see a man and woman in tune with nature. I enjoyed the sample poem, too, so powerful.
