In partnership with Witty Writers Guild (WWG) Publishing House and artist Kaed Paras, I’m happy to share that my first prose and poetry collection Bittersweetis a Publisher’s Choice and is out now and available for purchase!
Bittersweet is a collection of prose and poetry about love and life. More importantly, it contains pieces that were the aftermath of the author’s story of naivety― conceited but beautiful at the same time. It will take you to the highs of surreal happiness and to the lows of melancholia. It will make you see that growth is the end of all things good and bad.
Lastly, it is a testimony that bitter and sweet comes hand-in-hand in life. There is no other way around, but to fully embrace it with a genuine smile in the face and in the heart.-MV Sorima
All the pieces inside the book were the product of my younger self’s journey of exploring the thing that everyone calls as “love” and that other bigger entity that they call “life.” So I can say that this book is basically me, handing a naive girl’s experience of awakening and understanding in the form of bittersweet prose and poetry (that I hope are aesthetically, artistically, and linguistically valuable.)
I hope that I will be able to resonate to anyone who gets to have my book. I hope this will be an instrument to make the reader reminisce his/her own naive chapter in life. See that chapter as something conceited, but at the same time beautiful as it induced learning and eventually growth which serve as a powerful foundation of one’s present.
