"The world is in need of a pep talk, and Emily Lloyd Haines is just the person to deliver the good news. Two years into carrying her wonderful book of peppily fierce poems and truth bombs peppered with Emily’s gift of perfect cursing, we still have trouble keeping it in stock. Whether you are struggling with confidence or feeling crestfallen with the state of the world, the poems in this book will make you giggle, pick up your spirit, and ready you to face the wide wonderful world."
"I became aware of Pep Talk Poetry in early 2020 and was charmed by the book. I began selling it in February and have enjoyed watching my customers pick it up and be cheered by its heartfelt, yet edgy message since then. More than one customer has bought multiple copies, as it is a perfect and thoughtful gift for anyone, in any situation in life. This book has been a delightful addition to our store and has shown itself to be a favorite of our patrons. I’m glad to have seen it find its way into the hands of people who are longing for a pep talk." Suzanna Bierwirth Owner & Operator | Goods & Heroes
