NEW BOOK REVEAL!
It is my great pleasure to reveal the cover and info on my new book -
"A LIT WICK"
It's been a lifelong dream of mine to release a book of poetry and I'm very proud to say that it's finally happening. A LIT WICK is a wonderfully volatile collection of poems, lyrics and short stories that paint an interpretive portrait through pieces of my life. A metaphorical flame held to a shattered mirror. Some of it is incredibly raw, some humorous, some heartbreaking. Themes of healing, growth, anger, regret, death, trust and letting it all go.
I hope you'll join in on my journey. This has the feel of something that I'd like to continue. Poetry complimented by stories that sort of feed into each other, almost like a legend to read a map or decipher a code. Details on the when, where and how will be coming soon!
And please, a round of applause for this incredible cover by Ryan Quackenbush. We had previously worked on "The Dolls", (also available from Source Point Press under "Horror Double Feature 2"), and I'm so glad we had an opportunity to work together again. He really knocked it out of the park. There's a little more to that story, my writing method, (and to how the book came to be in general), in the introduction, so I won't spoil anything here, if only to prod you further to pick up your copy haha.
As for a teaser... please enjoy the first poem in the book:
"One Storm Leaves Cold Hearts"
One storm leaves cold hearts, but we continue in
With hard hands, sold long, and how we hindered them
Turning coils and spires up under the sun
In a haze
Some are hidden
In that center
And we rarely call it never anymore
So come for the cause and the words we sound like
Harmony, this quick, is all sculpture
Fine to look at
But act like
Its craving culture catapulted to our knees
And even then, a lit wick
More news coming soon!
Stay safe, stay tuned, and thank you, as always, for reading.
