by Nina HartSomewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere is a book that speaks directly to society’s “elephants in the living room” through kooky hooliganism and satire. Five-year-old Bonanza’s mother tells her to “keep digging” as she buries her dolls, and ultimately herself. The dead poet Robert Lowell reappears as a high school student. Meanwhile, at Butterfly Farm, the protagonist dishes up some unconventional environmental justice. Even the ones who kill with oil spills have a voice in this ... more

by Sandra HaightThe poems in this poetry book embody a philosophical theme that, like the tides of the ocean, life is made up of opposing forces – ebbs and flows, ups and downs, highs and lows – and that each of these complement one another to make up a whole or cycle. Through the words of these poems may you feel the contrasting movements of the different “tides of life” – the courage and fears, the optimism and pessimism, the hope and despair— which we all feel as humans.

This is a book of Sufi Poetry that is not a translation but is totally original in both artwork and poetic expression. There is an inspirational thread here that speaks in a loud modern voice to the many hearts that seek 'His Presence'.
by Rachel ThompsonThis is my most intensive work to date. Broken Pieces is a work of nonfiction essays, poetry, and prose where I open my soul and invite you in for a visit. It's vulnerable, it's raw honesty, it's no-holds barred. This is the first book I've published where I questioned if readers and reviewers would respond favorably due to the serious nature of the work. And yet, they have. Most readers know me as the funny girl, but this work (hinted at in A Walk In The Snark), shows that I can go into t... more
by Michael Odom
From a customer review on Amazon: "Michael Odom's creative mind and sense of humor work together to fashion poems that are like sitting down for a cup of coffee to discuss life (and death, and sex) with a self-deprecating starving-artist agnostic. One can imagine that even the title (although borrowed from Voltaire) is really just his way of commenting on the plight of being a poet.

by Kiana DonaeWhat happens when you bleed ink? You get poetry that paints pictures so vividly you can feel it. Love and Ink lures you in with it's innocence but when you come out at the end, you realize Love and Ink is not at all what you thought. Love and Ink isn't always black and white.
by Cristina OlsenKissing the Sky is an autobiography of the soul in poetic and visual form that begins with loss and loneliness, but soon transforms into love and an expansive freedom of the soul. From post-war London to the vast Pampas of Argentina, from Buenos Aires to the Hills of Novato, California, I weave a meditative tapestry of poetry, poetic prose, and photography celebrating the beauty of nature and its power to transform pain into joy.
by Robert AhanesA mythically inspired observation of love and its effect on the human psyche, Goddess in the Silence creates quite the case for the feelings evoked by the powers of internal passion. Ranging from euphoric fantasies in “Siren’s Spellbound,” to a demonic hatred of a haunting past love, in “The Hellhound,” the works of author Robert Ahanes's second collection pay homage to the Greek goddesses who have inspired some of history's greatest love stories. Ahanes utilizes his unique romantic expression i... more
