Something More Like Love Available Now

Something More Like Love, the first chapbook by Jenn Monroe, is available now from Finishing Line Press. Something More Like Love examines love and its many facets. "Jenn Monroe's poetry finds its wellspring in divine reality in which everything moves through and out of love," writes Barbara Louise Ungar, author of Charlotte Bronte, You Ruined My Life. "We are in a mess--but you will feel better about it after reading this lovely chapbook: happier, calmer, and more joyful." Eric Pinder, author of Life At The Top and North To Katahdin, call the poems in Something More Like Love "gem-like" and "packed with passion and wit." "I've been eagerly awaiting this collection since the first time I heard Jenn Monroe perform her poetry," he said.
