Summer Rain: Generations of Poems

Summer rain digital cover

A little collaboration I’ve been working on is finally completed.  For years I’ve been wanting to do something a little different from fiction, and here it is… a collection of poetry.

Summer Rain contains generations of poems from the family of author, Rick Pipito. Over 185 writings including works by Charlene Pipito, Roberta Pipito, Tony Pipito, Lana Pipito, Anna May Prokop, and Rick Pipito. There’s something for everyone in these pages, from dark thoughts to things that will brighten your day and make you smile. Some of the works won various awards over the years.

Day 12 #authorlifemonth – Inspiration

As an author I get inspiration from a lot of my own personal experiences, but it also comes primarily from the people I need to impress.  My wife is a very critical person.  She’s had to be, and it is a great asset as it has taken her to amazing places, and continues to keep her name achieving new heights.  When I write, I know I have to impress her.  Even if I don’t particularly write in a certain genre she likes, I know that if she says “it sucks,” then it does, so for me, passing my work onto an editor, must pass her screening first.  It’s what helps me improve and learn.

Of course I also have to include my son and daughter.  They are both direct inspiration for the characters I created in my 2 children’s books: A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS, and A LITTLE BOY IN THE LAND OF THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS.
