The Inside of Out

Jena Strong's second book, The Inside of Out,  is a continuation of her first book, Dont Miss this, in which she shared her personal journey of coming out, motherhood, the end of her marriage, and at last, coming home to herself. It also stands solidly on its own, a complete story in its own right.

The book vacillates between poetry and prose in Jena's inimitable voice, each piece painting a picture so vivid and clear, you will feel as though you are living the events alongside her. The broad spectrum of human experience, so unique to each individual, binds us by the common thread of emotion. Whether or not you have ever been in love with a woman, are personally impacted by gay marriage and politics, or have ever had children, the emotional landscape of Jena's story will feel familiar.

When you look beneath the surface, we are all so much more alike than different. Jena is a gifted storyteller whose words have the ability to make a wide variety of readers focus on our human sameness, without sacrificing the grit and struggle inherent in being different.

Order your copy today. Drop her a note after you have read the book and let her know what hit home for you. I know she would love to hear from you.
