Week 38 Chapbook Chart 2019 – Rebecca Milton

How to Forgive Yourself in Fifteen Years is Rebecca Milton’s first poetry collection. Its twenty-one poems chronicle her journey towards recovery from a mental breakdown. The collection is an examination of the symptoms of chronic depression and anxiety disorder, tackling topics from relationships to suicide and self-harm.

Rebecca Milton spends so much of her time daydreaming that it’s a wonder she has managed to publish anything at all. She is a writer from southeast England whose debut novel was released in August 2017. Mundane Magic is an introspective look at a mage trying desperately to be a good man, and a young woman who abruptly finds that magic exists, she and her best friend both possess it, and that her form of magic is the only thing that can stop a murderer. You can find her blog at www.rebecca-milton.com
