Poems Of Love, From My Heart To Yours by Kerry C. Irons

Technology has created a wide variety of ways to reach audiences all over the world. It takes is a little thinking outside the box and you can market a self-published book in creative, affordable and impactful ways. Consider book tours! Tours are a great way to connect with your readers and technology has made them easier and more cost effective than ever!

Author Kerry C. Irons is taking his latest book Poems of Love, From My Heart to Yours Vol. 1 on tour — a Virtual Book Tour with Outskirts Press. This will allow Kerry to take his book into the far corners of the globe, all from the comfort of his own home! Keep an eye out for Kerry’s book as he will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Kerry was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of Poems of Love, From My Heart to Yours Vol. 1.

OP: Tell us a little bit about Poems of Love, From My Heart to Yours Vol.1. What is it about?

Kerry: My book is about two people in love who currently live on two different continents, who just happen to be my fiancée, Rukayatu and me.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Kerry: I met Rukayatu, my fiancee, online. We started to talk and eventually fell deeply in love. During one of our conversations I told her that I was a poet. So, she asked me to prove that to her. So, I did. The first poem that I wrote for her was titled “My Ruky Love.” Since that first poem, the number of poems that I have written for her is now well over three hundred. Thus, comes my first book of love poems, all written for the woman that I love. And the love story of Kerry and Rukayatu is yet unfolding.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Kerry: I browsed the internet and investigated a few publishers and decide that I would self-publish through Outskirts Press. I am very satisfied with that decision.

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

Kerry: Any and every one with a heart for love. My book is not only tells a story through poetry about two people in love who are separated by an ocean, it also delves into the subject of love on many levels and the different facets of love in general.

OP: What is special about your book?

Kerry: The one thing that makes my book special is the fact that it contains my feelings, my emotions, as well as the contents of my heart in the form of written words of poetry that I am literally sending from my heart to Rukayatu’s heart. Thus the title, Poems of Love, From My Heart to Yours. My book is also special because it is allowing the world to look inside of mine and Rukayatu’s love.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

Kerry: The main thing that differentiates my book of love poems from all the others is the fact that Kerry and Rukayatu are not fictitious characters, but instead, two people who are deeply in love with each other and their sole goal is to make the distance and the time between them vanish and one day look into each other eyes and say these three words, I love you. One other thing that I will add. Yes, my book is about the love that exists between Rukayatu and I. But love, in all senses of the word, in my heart is my passion. If I were to ever give a speech or speak at a social gathering the only subject that I would care to speak about is love. In the synopsis of my book I wrote these words “Love is the greatest power on earth, but mankind, as of yet, has failed to harness it and reap its true rewards.” To me those are not just words, in a way, they are the essence of my very being.

OP: Have you published any other books?

Kerry: No, Poems of Love, From My Heart to Yours, is my first book to be published. There will be other volumes that will continue to tell the story of Kerry’s and Rukayatu’s love. Volumes 2 and 3 will be published in the near future. They have already been written.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Kerry: Yes, many more. As a matter of fact, Rukayatu and I will be jointly writing and publishing the complete story of our love in the form of a romance novel that will give a detailed account of all the things that we have gone through in the quest to have our love.

OP: Thanks for your time, Kerry! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
