From the Author

2012 update: My publishing company, Graceful Publications has started donating half the proceeds from sale of this book and of Leap to Hearts for Change, a small Canadian charity that's passionate about helping disadvantaged children around the world. Poetry doesn't make people millionaires, so I decided to do something worthwhile with the small amount of royalties these books received. I can't believe the small difference we've been able to make in just a few years. Since the paperback release of WTBG in 2008, through UNICEF and now Hearts for Change, we've been able to send five children to school and provide for their health and welfare, and we've helped countless others by donating pencils and books to entire schools. Thanks again for your help!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'll Be Coming Back For More July 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second poety collection of Stewart's that I have read. I enjoyed this one as much as the first and I will be grabbing her third, Carry on Dancing, soon.

I want to mention the images in the book first. They're awesome and she places them perfectly among the poems. The picture of the World Trade Center next to the poem, When Freedom Stands, caused a stir of patriotism and sadness inside me.

One thing that I enjoy about Heather's work is that is modern. She pokes fun at social networking and the addiction it causes. Five Thousand Friends is one example. Lolita touches on an aspect of the social world that I doubt few poets have touched before, if any.

Light Moments was my favorite poem of the collection. It made me think about how we celebrate the big moments, but it's the Light Moments that make a life.

Well done, Heather. Thanks again for sharing your writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks for Heather's "Leap" July 7, 2012
By Monty
Format:Kindle Edition
Heather's maturity shows, in both her writing skills and her womanhood. From her first collection, Heather grows. She's focused on both the joys and tears of wife and mother and in poet's manner, why "it's all worth it." When doubt might plague, Heather can say "yes, it's worth all of the time, tears, trouble and heartache," as she shares herself with her readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars loved it June 21, 2012
Format:Paperback
Leap was a charming, heart-warming addition to the culture of our household. It resides on the coffee table where, every so often, my daughter would pick it up and open to a random selection and smile. A really sweet and funny work from the talented Heather Grace Stewart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving Leap! June 19, 2012
Format:Paperback
'Leap... "Leap" by Heather Grace Stewart. Don't by the book because part of the proceeds go to Unicef's Gift of Education project. Buy it for the poignancy, gentle humour and melodic writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leap May 27, 2012
Format:Paperback
I love this collection of poetry by Heather Grace Stewart. The poems, which vary in length and form, touch so many emotions. I laughed at the humour in "Honey-Do List "and enjoyed the number of poems based on social networking; I was moved by the poignancy of "Light Moments" and "Valley".
The poems that resonated strongly with me were the group which looked at motherhood/childhood. Although my children are adults, I'm revisiting many of these experiences with my young grandchildren - they are such precious times and Heather Grace Stewart has captured them in her poetry.
There are so many good things to discover in this collection, - far more than I've mentioned here. I know I shall return to them time and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leap (Heather Grace Stewart) May 22, 2012
Format:Paperback
Once again I was not disappointed in this collection of poems.
Ms. Stewart, writes with a passion pen bringing about emotions in each piece.
I would say a few that I really connected with were One Hand, Forever August & So Cool Networking. I recommend to poetry lovers, and those who may be curious about poetry; both Leap & Carry On Dancing by Heather Grace Stewart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poems of Rare Beauty April 19, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Canadian poet, Heather Grace Stewart, writes lovely poems about modern life. Her poems have a rare beauty all while being sensual and wise. What I especially loved about this collection of poetry was the inclusion of her photographs. I also found many poems to love. I liked "Air" as it spoke of a beautiful comfort and "Paths" reminded me of what is important. Some of the poems speak of the realities of online life like tweeting and posting on facebook. A few poems have really beautiful endings and some of the poems represent very sensitive feelings. There is a pinch of politics, a dash of laughter and a cup of poignancy. I was pleased to read that half the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to UNICEF's Gift of Education Project. I think that is wonderful.

More About the Author

Heather Grace Stewart is a Canadian magazine writer, author and poet. Her first poem was published in her school newsletter when she was five, and she's been hooked on writing ever since.

Heather's debut novel, Strangely, Incredibly Good, will be released by Morning Rain Publishing on June 5, 2014.

Praised by Hollywood actors & producers as 'funny' 'clever' and 'innovative', Heather's screenplay THE FRIENDS I'VE NEVER MET is her best-selling Kindle book to date, reaching #28>Action & Adventure in Women's Bestselling Fiction in November 2013.

Reviewers call her work 'modern' and 'unconventional;' the writing 'tender' 'heartfelt' and 'vulnerable.' (Three Spaces, 2013) Her third poetry collection, Carry On Dancing (Winter Goose Publishing, March 2012) was reviewed as 'brave, personal and eloquent poems.' These collections charted on print and Kindle bestsellers lists in 'Poetry' and 'Canadian Poetry' in Canada, the US and the UK.

Heather is also the author of the Amazon Kindle best-selling poetry collections 'Leap' and 'Where the Butterflies Go,' two non-fiction books for youth, and a book of children's poetry, The Groovy Granny.

Born in Ottawa, she lives with her husband and daughter near Montreal.
In her free time, she loves to take photos, scrapbook, cartoon, inline skate, dance like nobody's watching, and eat Swedish Berries -- usually not at the same time.
