by Michael R. Lane
As a teenager, Michael Lane only wrote when necessary. He had nothing against writing: he was – and is – an avid reader. He simply saw no need to write outside of satisfying his academic requirements. That was before he spent time with poetry. Poetry became his first creative writing love. They began dating in high school and she remains his longest running love affair. The idea for Mortal Thoughts — not in name but in body — began taking shape for him in November 2015... more
by Kenisha WhitleyI didn't write this book. I lived it. I breathed it. And more importantly, I said it all out loud. This book is a collection of poems and prose, a memoir, and a diary of sorts about the growing complexities of life seen through the eyes of a young woman. Each piece brings consciousness to our shared experiences while celebrating our differences. It is meant to embrace and unite. This collection is not made to be read silently but said aloud. If there's a poet in you, you will enjoy "Out Lou... more

by D. J. LeMarrThe story of Lucifer's fall from heaven is well known. His wicked nature is legendary, surviving for many years, yet as all conflicts go there are two sides. These opposing sides each with their own reasons and justifications. Knowing only part of the story is worthless. The Keys of Death and Hades is the first book in the Epic of Lucifer. It is the story as it happened through the Wyrm's eyes. What could be so precious that Lucifer would dare defy the will of God, supreme creator of all, fail a... more
by Sean KennedyThe poems have diverse styles of rhyme and blank verse. I've experienced several crises in my time on the planet; some of which have a humorous touch, but others feature the grim or regretful side. Readers may interpret them as they wish. The complexities of cricket are laid bare, and I was never any good at the game. But I was a world record holder as part of the crowd of more than ninety thousand at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 1961 when Australia played the West Indies. Finally, ther... more

by Cecil WellesThis book represents a sample of the author?s thought clarification. Somber, crazy, joyful, or eclectic in subjects, the sonnet format provides a steady bedrock of expression. Some subjects are deep, some barely scratch the surface, some try to resolve a conundrum, and some are a passing whim. All start with a single word or phrase with no end state in mind until the poem is done.
