Falling into Autumn



Dear Readers and Listeners! It is hard to believe we are in autumn already! As the leaves start changing colors and falling, so are many projects falling into place. To keep my creativity bubbling merrily, I take walks in nature , enjoying the crisp air, and looking for stories in the solemn swaying of the trees, as they bid their leaves adieu....


Ongoing Projects

- My short fiction anthology "The Inside Out Worlds: Visions of Strange" has been available in print and digital forms for a few months now. Anthology on Amazon  Anthology on Other Platforms. Last month, I had a book launch to celebrate, with the help of James Bryant's Spofest Open Mic platform. I read from my work, and other writers/poets shared their sci-fi or horror works as well. The live reading can be found here: Book launch

- Southern Arizona Press's Poetic Anthology, Dragonflies and Fairies is now complete and is available on this website at The book is available for free download in pdf format and there is also a link button to order the book through Amazon for $9.99 US. Check out my two poems "Child of the Moon" and "Dragon Secrets", plus all the other amazing poems in this collection.

- I have recently self-published an illustrated poetry chapbook all about the moon. Years' worth of poetry are compiled into one small book, complete with illustrations provided by AI art (MidJourney). Check it out here! Offerings to Selene. The print version will be available Oct. 8th.

- My best music compositions are available for licensing through Komb Music Publishing. That means if film directors, producers, animators, etc need music for a project, film, animation, etc and feel like my music is a good fit, they can purchase and download my music. I have mostly neoclassical pieces of all moods, but also some jazz, world pieces, and synth work. Sophie J Posey's Compositions



More good news are coming through the pipeline about my writing and music... I can't wait to share with you all. 

In the meantime, if you have any questions or want to share anything, you can connect with me on Instagram or Twitter or simply reply to this email.

As always, feel free to share the newsletter with friends who might be interested in my content. 
Take care all!

Dear Readers and Listeners!
Never dreamed there’d come a day when I’d start a newsletter, but here I am.

I’m Sophie, a more often than not frazzled French teacher, an author and a composer. I have reached the point in my career where I have published my first novel and my first few albums.
So exciting! 

I’ve come a long way from sharing poetry, little stories and piano compositions with families and friends… 

In college I started publishing stories and music in online lit magazines, and now, the plunge: self-publishing my novels and albums.

I’d like to use this newsletter to make connections and share my experiences. 

I’ll do my best to write every month about my journey and the writing/music process and trends in those communities. I’ll be sharing pictures and videos of readings of my works and discussions about a particular writing/music topic.
