Hi everyoneeee... Yesss this is my second book I had written and published this year. Following the steps of my wife, Taylor Swift. kekekkee... okay, last time I called her my gf now my wife. This is usually to test my personal preference and readiness whether I am ready for a committed relationship with a person. hahahhaa...
I wrote Be Brave: Uncensored Motivational Quotes in one sitting. Started to write everything from 11.30am to 5.30pm on one of the days in August, specifically on 5th Aug 2021. It was just an instance. I was actually still dragging to finish writing my book that I promised about journey to build self-esteem. Then, suddenly, my emotions was quite high on that day and without any thinking or pondering much, I wrote Be Brave: Uncensored Motivational Quotes. Quotes book is one of my to-do list but I did not expect to write it immediately like that. I thought that the self-esteem book will be the first to be completed. Anyway, it took me 6 hours to write the first draft, but took me like 2 weeks to finished writing the second draft before sending it for professional critique and editing and proofreading, which was a total of 4 months. The quotes were actually all in my mind for quite sometime since it linked to many different parts of my plans and life during that time. I think because I wanted to release the memories and experiences (good and bad) at the instance, which made me wrote everything easily.
I had sent all the first batch of my books orders last week. Today I just sent two books to my secondary school teachers, Maths and Geography who are my favorite teachers. Their classes are the ones I always look forward to go and it always motivated me to work smart and put in effort in my studies.
I will end my marketing of this book by mid of November so I can move forward to work on another projects of mine. Need to do something new just so I can progress forward every time. Please remember to support my books and follow me in social media!
Also, remember to write a book review in Amazon, Goodreads and Winter Scribbler Publishing.
This is one of the poems featured in Letters of a Thousand Speeches book by S.Sulianah
"When I told you I could write hundreds of letters filled with a
thousand speeches, what I meant was I have done it since the day
we met again seven years ago.
Your kindness, attention, protectiveness, wit and curiosity have lit
up my life. Every time you smile, it seeps into my mind, begging
to be in my memory.
The way you laughed and how you hid that beautiful shy smile
puts me to sleep at night.
I thought I had lost all this seven years ago. And then you came

Hii y'all! I would like to keep you updated after considering whether to publish it here. But anyway, I would like to announce that my second published book is now out. I am so proud of the final product. I feel like personally the contents and the way I write those words and poem somewhat improved, better than my first book, Masterpiece in Your Heart.
I learnt about some technique in writing poem from The Poetry Handbook and The Practice of Poetry. And then I test it with the song lyrics by of course my Taylor Swift to check whether technically it is feasible. I haven't finish reading these books though because I use it for reference on those parts that I needed in order to publish this new book at the soonest. Because if I don't, the vibe will not be there anymore. It is just nice with the timing of my recent broken heart.
By the way, I am also excited and proud of the trailer which I made for this book. I did it myself with the editing and compiling suitable videos that fit the story-line of this prose poetry book. The videos acting are exactly what happened in real life. I wish I could make a short film or series like this. If you are wondering what this book is about, the trailer I made as below tells it all.
If you are wondering who designed the book cover and illustrations in the book, I ran 2 contests in 99designs inviting designers from all around the world to participate in this contest. It was a great one and I didn't anticipate that one of them could make it look luxurious, over my imagination.

I think that only effort of a poet that wants to ''offer to art'' in this way, deserves respect. Poetry cannot control expression some times when it comes to feelings, specially when content of poems is about love, and ''less friendship''. Poet expresses herself in the way she can, and this great personal effort must be rewarded, whatever it is. Poet herself can actually improve content, by improving format and words used. By all means I would give 3 stars to poet.
[Review of MIYH by Katerina Katapodi]
Moving onto the real beauty of the collection, which is in the writing. The poet captures scenes and moments then explores them in poetry. It has a magical feel of transporting you into that moment, which for the theme of love is essential. There is a slow build-up to the key sentiment of the poem and then you basked in it before it gently ends. The poet is clearly at home with this style and uses it continuously throughout the collection.

Review by Louis Cecile of Poetry Book Masterpiece in Your Heart (2nd Ed.) S.Sulianah
By Louis Cecile
This poetry collection follows that popular theme amongst poets that is love. This handled with a sense of refinement and polish by the author. With a well-designed book format that is vibrant and appealing.
The length and pacing of the collection are perfect for what the poet wishes to share. Interestingly there are poems tailored onto popular songs by a well-known artist. The poems use a free verse and non-rhyming style.

The poet is clearly the narrator giving you a touch of sentimental scenes. There are slight deviations from the theme of love with a look at friendship towards the end of the collection. However, it can be argued friendship is a form of love as well.
Overall a delightful collection that is well put together and transports you to those most moving moments in life.
First Edition (Not professionally edited and designed)
Have you ever wonder what every million moments in our life means without the truth of it?
Masterpiece in Your Heart scribes the feelings of hopes and expectations. The moments the author wonders what it meant to life and how it all had live to her dreams.
Every landscape of illustrations shot from around the world symbolizes the significance of each poem.
Writing a book and publishing it has been one of her many dreams when she started to fall in love with reading and writing since in secondary school. Spending time in the library during recess and after school with her two close friends blooms this spirit of language in her.
Masterpiece in Your Heart (MIYH) which evolves around poetry is her first published book. She has been writing poems for more than ten years however none of it was shared with anyone. This series of poetry are the first step for her opening up her thoughts and feelings. She is thankful to the lovely memorable individuals who had been and still are part of her life, the inspirations to her poetry and novels.
