Advance praise for Three Words:

“Three Words is a poet’s dream to read with nods to various forms and styles of poetry. This chapbook journeys through the butterflies of new love, the uncertainty of where love takes you, and the cliffs love falls to. Juliette is so intelligent and deliberate in her word choice, every word having a specific purpose.”

—Megan O’Keeffe, author of Cracked Open and Where I Ache

“A man unattainable, a relationship undefined, a love unrequited. This beautiful collection, born from
the intimacy of words and stolen glances, immerses the reader in an honest tale of desire and secrecy
though heartfelt verse. Juliette’s sincere storytelling and engaging voice makes for an enjoyable read
and will keep you turning each page to delve further into the forbidden romance. Reflecting
back upon her past lover as “a daydream / merged with memories,” these poems confess unspoken
thoughts and hidden feelings of which those who have experienced a relationship of equal parts
excitement and uncertainty can relate, and those who haven’t will feel like they have within these

—Elfie, author of Will You Still Love Me if I Love Her? and How Will I Sound When My Voice
