By now, anyone who is into the poetry scene knows Amanda Lovelace by name. Her much anticipated first collection of poetry, The Princess Saves Herself In This One, which is available on Amazon and Createspace, was instantly successful, and is set to be published by Andrews McMeel - who has published books by other popular poets such as Clementine von Radics and Lang Leav - in February 2017.
The Princess Saves Herself In This One is one heck of a journey, and it's quite a tough one, especially if you've been through similar experiences. It is split into four parts - the Princess, the Damsel, the Queen, and You - which each depict different parts of the author's life.

It begins with a girl who has a strained relationship with her mother, who wants to show the world love but is only ever shown pain, and you watch her grow into a woman who knows that she is already everything she needs to be. You watch her go through things no one should have to go through: burying her mother, and growing older than her older sister. You watch her have her ups and downs, her questions of why and what if, and still she comes out stronger in the end. She comes out a fighter, and a true inspiration to anyone whose ever experienced loss or hardship.
This is a book that will stay with you long after you turn the last page - and it will certainly make you come back for more.
