Someday

10 Feb

SOMEDAY  is a poem I wrote for my novel “Into the Vines.”

by Kim Troike

 

Maybe you’ve dreamed of visiting the city of light and love. Growing up, I can say it is the place I wanted to go to, especially when I was in my teens.

Someday I will get there. Though, I’m not worried as it will fall into place.

Thanks for visiting, and let me know if you if you get a chance to read my novel. I hope it makes you feel enlightened towards others in this universe.

 

 

 

Someday

 
Someday when I’m in Paris,

Touring the Avenues along the Seine;

My eyes will venture to the sky,

Noting Gothic Notre Dame and Eiffel Tower line.

My francs exchanged for euros to pay for Louvre Art;

Rich history and beauty fill chambers in my heart.

But first a café and selected sinful fruit tart . . .

 

“Qui, Qui. S’il vous plait,” I say.

“D’accord.” She hands me the baked sweet.

“Merci,” I add.

“De rein,” she replies.

“Donnez-moi, s’il vous plait un verre de vin.”

“Qui.” She smiles.

“Merci, ou est the Louvre?” I ask.

“La tout droit.” She points.

 
Translation of Quotes

 

“Yes, yes please,” I say.

“Okay.” She hands me the delicious sweet.

“Thank you.”

“You’re welcome.”

“Please give me a glass of wine. I changed my mind.”

“Yes.” She smiles.

“Thank you. Where is the Louvre?” I ask.

“There, straight ahead.” She points.

Into the Vines

This is the cover reveal for my novel “Into the Vines.”

 

I think it turned out perfect. It is up on Amazon for print and later will be available per e-book or kindle.

 

Have a look … Into the Vines on Amazon here.

 

 

The book synopsis is on the back cover and here is what it says:

Into the Vines is a novel of discovery, personal triumph and heroism. French Bleu, a vintage-jazz nightclub in Paris offers a reprieve to its inhabitants from death, illness and captivity. Olivier is a pilot who rescues stranded and desperate souls from famine and war torn areas of Africa, while Daniela, a young nurse, seeks that which is amiss in her own life. Brie, a strong woman, must find a destiny which awaits her own ambition. She celebrates a milestone birthday after encountering an illness, bringing grace and experience in her search for something more.

Daniela dreamed. “I want to be as confident as Brie on a sunny day in Savannah in the summertime” From the vineyard cooking school in the garden-like Loire Valley, where these three lives meet, to the streets of Paris, where fate brings blessings from angst and longing. This story revels in realism.

This sanctuary seemingly held an inspirational deity as they witnessed a spiritual unity on the Ceremonial Cliffs. Hawa dreams of flying a plane someday, while Francis possesses natural talents of the musical kind. Together they keep a secret for fear of retribution. “I heard LOVE lasts forever and my mom says there are all kinds of love. So maybe you should find another kind of love, since your first love lasted forever” said Francis.

Thank you for stopping by today. Of course, I’m very proud of myself and actually, it’s quite unbelievable! I think I’ve got this writing thing somewhat developed, and therefore may try to write another self-published novel for summer. You see, I’m quite goal oriented and probably have my mother or father or grandmother’s to thank for that. Maybe, it’s just being one of five and recording everything in my brain that later tries to retell it making new outcomes. I think it’s plain old creativity you are born with. Who knows?

Self-promotion is difficult but a must do for us Indie Authors. Period. I will post on Tuesdays something relevant to my novel on one of my blogs, which will make it to Twitter and Tumblr. Then, I’ll be hanging around on Fridays for fun! Please comment as I’d love to hear from readers, authors and others. 😉

My Novel

River SeineI will be promoting my novel “Into the Vines” beginning today January 21st through May 1st. It will be released any day now on Amazon and other venues for consumers. I have sent it to 12 book bloggers to obtain reviews and I look forward to their input. Also, I’ve entered three contests around the globe, so wish me luck with that. I’ll be doing related posts on this site about items or issues in the book. For now here is a picture of the beautiful River Seine in Paris, where some of my book’s activity takes place.
