Happy Book Birthday, HONEYBEE!

May 1, 2018 marks the official release day of Honeybee by Trista Mateer. It's this awesome epic poem/story-in-verse of early-life heartbreak that makes you catch your breath. While some of the book addresses bisexuality and a young woman coming to terms with how she's being treated because of it, it resonates with so many. It's because it is a story of love, loss, heartbreak and all the messy, awful things that happen and that we feel when we're in love; no matter our identity. Trista has this innate ability to connect on a very real level with her readers and put into words what most of us have a hard time even understanding.

There's
amazing reviews popping up all over the internet, but we invite you to find out for yourself by reading it. It's listed at so many stores, but if the dollars aren't handy right now, that's okay because Trista shares a lot of her work on Instagram where she posts not only poems and work from this book, but from her many others, as well as her visual art.

Please help us congratulate Trista on an absolutely beautiful accomplishment by sending her a
tweet or shouting out to her on Instagram.
