Sample Chapters & Links – My Blog Series

Though each digital outlet usually has a preview capability, what is previewed to the reader varies tremendously.

Some outlets have pre-determined unalterable percents, and some, like Smashwords, allows the writer to set the percent, which then is passed on to where the book is distributed. But even then, the receiving retailer may have their own set limits.

What I want to be able to present to a reader, is at least 10% of the actual content.

Of the story. Or photo-memoir. Or photography. Or poetry.

This new series on my site allows me that.

Red leaves.

Brown, brittle, and crinkly

had wound down

to winter.


sat quietly amid the silence.

It let my heart rest.

It let me best


where your eyes gazed.


among the scattered logs –

fallen forgotten footsteps in the woods

struggling for some light.

It’s in the clearing

we see

as we spot


a light, a space of blue.

The water of Lake Champlain is


Mist rising smoothing the surface water

frozen over –

fish beneath scurrying in their dreamy


Your gaze

I catch in a glint of light

promises to keep me warm.

how air so dry

can feel so wet.

A fuzzy ice


along our lips.

More images of Lake Champlain and other locations in Vermont can be seen in my Vermont Gallery at Fine Art America (FAA).


Other images of course, include Paris and Austin. And there’s more Vermont pictures too (smiles).

A recent four star review on Amazon reads :

“Love’s Travels is one of the best books/poetry I’ve read recently. The rhythm of the words with the incredible photos creates a lovely picture of love shared. Mr. Lerma paints a beautiful story. I highly recommend this book. “
