Completely revised and expanded brand-new edition of Volume I, the first book in the Whiskey poetry trilogy!
Whiskey, Words, and a Shovel, Vol. 1, is about reclaiming your power on the path to a healthy relationship. It is a testament to choosing to love yourself, even if it means heartbreak.
Originally released in 2015, this re-rerelease packs the same punch as the first version, but makes an even greater connection with the soul of the reader. Each piece has been re-seen and revamped to reflect the author’s continuing journey with his partner, Samantha King, without whom this book would not exist. Samantha is the muse, the “she” the writer speaks of; she is every woman who has felt like she wasn’t good enough, and every woman who struggles to find love.
"R.H. Sin uses poetry to share his accounts of heartbreak and unhealthy relationships. He speaks of his muse, who is every woman who has struggled to find love and felt like she wasn't worthy of it." (Dominique Etzel, Alloy)
"That [past] relationship continues to fuel his writing, which encourages women to dump lesser men, avoid jerks, and stand up for what they want." (Sheila Marikar, The New Yorker)
