  • Mary had a Sleepy Sheep

    by Julia Dweck
    “Young Mary had a little lamb. His name was Sheppard sheep, And everywhere that Mary went That sheep was sure to sleep.” This is not your average Mother Goose nursery rhyme.

  • Broken Pieces

    by Rachel Thompson
    This 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
  • Boredom, Vice, and Poverty: ...Apprenticed to Such Calm... Poems by Michael Odom

    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.

    Some favorite lines:

  • The Rogue's Odyssey

    by Louise Findlay

    Heroes with an edge are always fascinating and when the metier is poetic, the romance tends to rise exponentially because, after all, everyone loves a rascal who’s only a heartbeat away from being on the wrong side of the tracks, but who somehow always battles on to win the day, whether that’s fleeing from dastardly henchmen, or fighting a terrifying dragon.

  • Love and Ink

    by Kiana Donae
    What 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.
