My poetry and prose collection, To the Sun, Moon, and Stars is always ranking in Asian Poetry on Amazon and I honestly can’t thank everyone who has supported it enough. Thank you for showing your love and support, thank you for encouraging me to keep sharing my words.
.
My writing (most of it) comes from a place of emotional whirlwind: I’m feeling too much and I need to get it out somewhere, what kind of story can I tell from this, what I wish this person would know, etc. And they often come in a form of unsent letters, a catharsis. In this book, a lot of the proses are raw and open, so I was nervous about how it would be perceived. But I truly meant for it to stay that way: vulnerable, honest, and not as perfectly polished. Because isn’t that what our emotions are about?
.
It’s been nearly a year since I worked on this book, but there’s more to come for sure. I am so grateful for my friends, my family, people whom I spoke with online, people I shared stories with at work, people who wrote reviews, people who would comment on my posts and tell me they love my words - everyone, really. It’s because of you that this very surreal dream has happened to me, because of you that my being an Author turned into reality, when I thought it couldn’t be possible. I love you all so much. Please keep tagging me in your photos of my book so I can share them! 💖✨
.
Lots of love, Cara

A huge thank you to @paperantlers for sending me this eclectic, personal and beautiful collection of poetry and writings. For somebody who has been following their account for ages, reading all the “previews” of poetry, this is a great thing to come home to today after work. 
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

My book is in Book Culture at NYC! ✨ It feels unreal to see my book sit on a shelf ???? And in a bookstore at one of my most favorite cities in the world ????? Is this real life ?????? I can’t stop crying.

I’m so in love with Cara’s writing, and I’m so proud of her for publishing her first book. It’s so hard to pick a favorite piece when all of them are written so beautifully. I look forward to more♡
