Fantastical for Real

Fantastical for Real

Chapbook – prose poetry

Ann Garcia

Fantastical for Real invites you to escape adulthood, think outside life’s box, and join Ann Garcia on a (self) love journey via her unique brand of prose poetry. Inspired by a metaphysical connection that resulted in significant inner growth, Fantastical for Real weaves appreciation for nature into Ann’s concept of the creative’s self, the creative’s soul mate, and the potential found inside where hopes and disappointments play tug-of-war while the soul plans its triumph.


“What a lovely book!

I thoroughly connected with, and enjoyed Ann’s words of love, nature and self.

The cover is beautifully designed as well. It would look amazing on any coffee table.”

Amazon Review – Verified Purchase

“Ann Garcia’s poetry is special, it tugs at your heart. It awakens the child within us. It reaches places in us we may not wish to acknowledge as grown ups. It speaks of a connection that few of us ever get to experience. We have been given the key to an enchanted forest accessed by poetry. Led by words, down a path of dreams, with nature’s child leading the way. Being lost is part of the attraction, in this secret world we can access whenever we choose.”

Meet the Creator

Hi! I’m Ann Garcia, Ph.D., a poet/ writer/ scientist with a creative drive that busts the box and a passion for poetry and prose. I established River Blossoms Press (RB Press), my greatest creative endeavor, to experience the reward of publishing books that I create.

Because the publishing industry is a big business, many beautiful written works will never be printed simply because they aren’t expected to sell. This is where RB Press diverges from the worn path.

River Blossoms Press is a publishing house founded for artistic expression.

I have a dream of inviting other writers to submit for publication through RB Press. Whether RB Press will move beyond strict self-publishing is an uncertainty right now; it is likely to depend on how much outside interest this creative endeavor obtains. If you’d like to watch this blossom unfold, please follow the RB Press Blog and me, Ann Garcia (@solaceinraindrops), on Instagram.

Dreams are coming true. My first publication, Fantastical for Real, is now available on Amazon, Kobo, and Apple Books!

I took a handful of flowers out of a […]

On Acceptance

I have a dream that, someday, I will invite other writers to submit for publication through River Blossoms Press. As noted in a previous blog post, whether my publishing house will move beyond strict self-publishing is an uncertainty right now; it is likely to depend on how much outside interest this creative endeavor obtains. Well, […]

Cover Reveal – Fantastical for Real

When I woke this morning, I had no intention of revealing my first book cover, but Fantastical for Real doesn’t want to wait any longer! I am likely to do some minor editing of this cover, but this is pretty much it! Fantastical for Real is my debut poetry chapbook for which I’ve selected prose […]
