  • Moonglow on Mercy Street

    by John Biscello
    These fifty poems, most of them written in 2020, comprise a kaleidoscopic palette of tones, moods and styles, in crafting living mythology from the world at large and within. Metamorphic bop, scat-alchemy, bare bones blues and gospel, love songs and odes, pagan pop, and cinematic remixes, make of Moonglow on Mercy Street a free-range concert aimed at the imagination and the senses. And, as a lyrical pilgrimage fueled by hope and wonder, it stands as a shining testament to Henry Miller's claim th... more

This is Olivia Gatwood’s New American Best Friend meets Silver RavenWolf’s To Stir a Magick Cauldron, casting and conjuring female empowerment with the talons of... more

  • To Hear His Voice: Poem and Devotional Book

    by Catherine Posey
    Life is full of challenges, troubles, heartaches, and fears—but there is no reason for us to endure bearing these burdens on our own. Not only did Jesus Christ die for our sins—so we may have everlasting life with Him—but He desires that we follow Him, so that we can hear His voice. When life gets hard, we have a Shepherd, our Saviour Jesus Christ, who gives us comfort. When we don't know which direction to turn, He guides us down the right path. When we feel weak and overwhelmed, He strengthens... more

    by Melodie Yvonne
    Not a lot of people know that I ran away from home at 16. And I never went back. Some days I don’t know how I’ve made it this far... and then I remember maybe I haven’t made it. It’s been a very long life, and I’ve lived through and done some rough things that I’d never wish on anyone. I’m lucky the people I hurt have been able to forgive me, and that through it all I’m not dead. This is a project that looks back on the time I spent living on the streets from town to town and place to place as w... more

  • Scribbles of the mind

    by Elie Azar
    This book is for all the people who found themselves unable to share their emotional burdens with the people they care about. To the people that weren’t able to give justice to their feelings, and to the fire running through their veins. To the ones that got so insecure, that the words of those around them became the bricks of the walls they built around themselves. I hope my book will make anyone who reads it feel less alone, less isolated and okay that they are unable to set free the chaos goi... more
