Book Launch: Meet Me on the Other Side of Wonder

For Immediate Release—Downeast, Maine. Bold Coast Books announces publishing the latest work of Author, Artist, and Poet, Loretta Boyer McClellan, on December 2, 2020. Synopsis to follow.

Join Loretta Boyer McClellan in her field of forget-me-not poems, where the butterfly abides and leads us to meet ourselves through wonder. For in wonder, we see.

In her sixth book and second volume of poetry, Meet Me on the Other Side of Wonder: Selected Poems, Loretta lyrically bridges the gap between the moment and the observation, bringing us to an ideal vantage point. Returning to her roots as a writer, with words charged to take notice, this collection of poems and prose, organized sequentially as written, establishes the author as not just a committed poet, but as a herald of transformative awareness.

This special edition offers cover art designed by the
author-artist, including her original watercolor.

Author, Artist, and Poet, Loretta Boyer McClellan, sees the art of writing as an exciting medium and source of abundant joy. Her multilayered career as a writer of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry; graphic design and communications; and as an Arts instructor, journalist, lyricist, and artist, “sized the canvas,” so to speak, for a fruitful life of expression.

For My Brother, on This Day

For My Brother, on This Day:
Mountain made thee, art of my heart.
Dug the grave with paintbrush and palette, pine boughs and perseverance.
Sure and smooth as the riverstones that lined their way.
Paint a kingdom of towering fir and spruce, of lofty angels, circling.
Of waterfalls and rivers of truth. Of caverns and caves of faith and miracles.
Layer upon layer of magnificence, in measured medium, viewed from above the dome of not half, but full in its glory. For the artist is therefore, perfect indeed, as creation is infinite.
—Loretta Boyer McClellan—

“A Tree and Her Roots”: A Poem

“Downeast Maine Maple Tree” ©2017 Loretta McClellan; all rights reserved.

A tree and her roots are giddy with glee, as they join the neighborhood party, rollicking underground, netted together in phantasmic accord. “Accept the imaginary, ” the consensus says. “It is but our duty to send this message: Be at once masterful of the witted place; treasure up her resource; ’tis not a game, but very life itself.” And the people listened. And they were at-one with the whole earth.

“As a Marriage and Family Therapist and as a person on my own personal journey, I enjoyed this memoir very much. This is an easy, but meaningful read. It is full of great resources and personal insights that can aid others in their journeys to wholeness. The author not only advocates self-compassion, but models it, as well. She clearly shows how her pain became a gateway to healing her whole being as she followed the path that opened up to her. I definitely think her work is an inspiration.” — Amazon Customer
