Lit. Update: Future Steps

It feels good to finally have my poetry book released in some form. However, the work doesn't stop there. Now I face the challenges of promoting it.

Lit. Update: S.D., Mystery, Poetry, and Publishing Options

  While I am still querying agents for my first novel, I'm also considering releasing the poetry book through another medium. My goal is still to be traditionally published, as there truly is no such thing as "self-publishing". In my spare time, I've also discovered other educational resources which I will share at a future… Continue reading Lit. Update: S.D., Mystery, Poetry, and Publishing Options

“The Celebration” – Poetry

Long and deep I ponder upon the changing fields The hidden mysteries of harvest, the cloaked secrets of gatherings We honor Those Who give and can easily take away While the ego gives in to gluttony and attempts to call it joy Ignoring wisdom openly Taught in actions and signs But at my altar stands… Continue reading “The Celebration” – Poetry
