Each of us is like a box of chocolates. I see many individual's boxes are slightly ajar, presenting only pieces they deem most worthy. Webster's Dictionary defines vanity as "excessive appreciation of one's own worth or virtue". While vanity allows us to expose only our most desirable characteristics to others, I believe those with nearly closed boxes usually are the least appreciative of their true worth. True vanity comes when we can expose proudly ALL pieces, even those hidden in dark corners. Look inside, beyond the cover of false vanity, as I present my truths in raw, emotionally driven words, finding complete self-acceptance of all my pieces as I finally gain true vanity � an excessive appreciation of my own worth. Herein are ALL my pieces in an open box� exposed truths within emotionally driven words created by my heart, soul and mind. With the acceptance and ability to tell of all my pieces � pain, loss, love, fate, hope and to proudly express my sexual thoughts, without the worry of society's backlash � a final excessive appreciation of my own worth and virtue. I am now truly vain.
My box is open. Sample me, as you desire.

American Actor Al Pachino once asked a question about Vanity when he gave Keanu Reeves hell in the blockbuster movie "The Devil's Advocate." But to stuff this amazingly beautiful woman in a cluttered box with other female writers would be an injustice to the question of VANITY itself. Make way for a Queen, a woman of poems, a woman of prose...a woman of substance. If you could melt silk into the fabric of our lives Audrey would be a huge ostrich colored winter coat that protects your skin from frostbite. Her writing is a much-needed flute glass of Moet after a hard day of bills, overtime hours and nagging friends. From matters of the heart to the depths of the human soul Audrey Michelle defines what I would call EXCELLENCE. She's much like me, she is PASSION, she is an ENIGMA, she is AUDREY MICHELLE. Her fire goes unmatched, her take-no-crap attitude reflects like sun rays to mirrors in her poetic words. I have been inspired by her talent. It was because of this woman that I switched up my hardcore writing into the beautiful strokes that opened the door for a major New York Times Bestselling author (who was on Oprah) to sign me to a contract. Audrey Michelle, may your words touch millions, and remember...when we both blow up our books will continue to shape the world...and open the door for up and coming authors who claw through the ranks.

The author has the gift of being able to put words together to draw us into her emotional world...highs and lows, disappointments and joyful moments. You'll share her pain and rejoice in her triumphs!
This book is extraordinary. The poet's feelings and moods are portrayed without inhibitions. Many can identify with her feelings and see their own lives and experiences through hers. This book is highly recommended.
