Asheville, NC is a beautiful place. For those of you who have never seen pictures or have been there, it’s nestled in the mountains, and probably best known for that house that is America’s largest home.
What else is there about Asheville, that creates such a draw? It usually enjoys all seasons, and is cool all year long with exceptions being winter and summer. It’s scenic. Is there anywhere in Asheville without a perfect view? It’s got a vibrant downtown and Arts scene. There are eateries galore with microbreweries and stores aplenty.
There’s outdoor sports, museums, art events, and historical spots you won’t want to miss. You can do something different every trip!
Asheville aka AshVegas is a place you may want to never leave!

“The Adventures of Stick People on Cars” published by Alien Buddha Press
“It turns out LB Sedlacek is one of the most prolific writers of our time. I hardly had time to finish breakfast before two more poetry collections slipped into my omelet. In her latest, The Adventures of Stick People on Cars, you’ll be surprised how much flesh a stick figure can have. These poems, physically thin on the page, are wide with sentiment and even experiment. Take the marriage of what could be separate poems in the blended lines of “Magnificent Bully” as two seemingly separate stories collide together in an almost ekphrastic euphoria. In The adventures of Stick people…, you’ll miss LB’s dad right along with her. You’ll turn every page before your first cup of coffee becomes nostalgia. Watch out for bears.” Rick Lupert, author of Hunka Hunka Howdee! and God Wrestler: A Poem for Every Torah Portion
New poetry book – “I am happy to announce this morning that “The Adventures of Stick People on Cars” a poetry chapbook from LB Sedlacek is now available. 85 highly amusing pages of poetry. Cover art from Red Focks”
POETRY IN LA, 2: LA VS LA
Return to more poems about LA, Lenoir Area, in this second book featuring poetry from the Facebook page, @poetryinla. This time poems cover our local arts scene such as our murals and the famous Dirt Circle (“Across the Grain” sculpture by Thomas Sayre.) Poems go back in time to what our area was originally known as “Tuckers Barn” and to days of local raw honey and homemade molasses, the old Blue Bell plant and Lenoir High School. Current outdoor sculptures as well a local popular fresco get a nod in this second book, a sequel to “Poetry in LA – Only in LA (LA Poems)” published last year, 2017. There’s also a follow up to the poem “Hibriten Mountain” from the first book with the new poem “Mill Mountain to Hibriten Mountain.” If you enjoyed the first book “Only in LA,” you’ll want to read the follow up book with the new poems, too!

This is a chapbook with travel poems from a recent trip to the North Carolina coast, Ocean Isle, Sunset Beach, Bald Head Island, and to the popular South Carolina beaches, Myrtle, North Myrtle, Cherry Grove. It’s adventure I seek whenever I take a trip. Some of the adventures are mainstream and well some are not! The best part of planning is not to make a plan! That’s how you have the best adventures! It’s great for me to just be by or near the ocean, the water and the sounds of the waves are so soothing. Please join in this new poetical ocean adventure with me!
