They touch on a myriad of themes that are common to all who have undertaken the journey through this particular life on this our home planet for the time being.

Jailbait by Barbara Kasey Smith - a novella
Published: March 31, 2015
Emily, a maturing teenage girl, lives in a small town in the hills of West Virginia. Her dad is a coal miner and money is scarce in their family. In fact, the entire town suffers for the same reason – a lack of money and just enough to make it from paycheck to paycheck.
Being born into a family of poverty has caused Emily to be bitter with her family. She’s so self-conscious of being poor that she actually becomes ashamed of her family and her home. She constantly daydreams of running away from home in hopes of finding a wealthy life.
One morning Emily has a terrible fight with her mother. She leaves out the door in a rage without saying goodbye. On her way to school, as she approaches the forks in the road, she decides to run away from home. This decision drastically changes Emily’s life… She finds herself a prisoner in a world of torture and sexual abuse with a constant desire to go back home, only to realize she is someone's "jailbait." Can Emily get herself out of this mess and come back home?

A Stir of Echoes by Régis Auffray - a collection of poetry
Published: December 14, 2016
Much has been stated about poetry. "Poetry is what in a poem makes you laugh, cry, prickle, be silent, makes your toe nails twinkle, makes you want to do this or that or nothing, makes you know that you are alone in the unknown world, that your bliss and suffering is forever shared and forever all your own." ~ Dylan Thomas "Poetry can be dangerous, especially beautiful poetry, because it gives the illusion of having had the experience without actually going through it." ~ Rumi "Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance." ~ Carl Sandburg "Poetry is a word-fed spring flowing from the consciousness of the poet's mind." ~ Régis Auffray With "A Stir of Echoes" it is the author's hope that the reader will be able to appreciate and perhaps to identify with the various situations, dilemmas, conflicts, miseries, euphoria, etc. that are expressed and consequently shared through his verses. The verses offer a glimpse into the author's soul and thus a way to get to know him more intimately.

Published: December 14, 2016
Régis Auffray's second collection of limericks will delight you, elicit a smile, and perhaps make your day even brighter.
While being fictional the limericks in this book were inspired by real people, experiences and events. As you immerse yourself in its pages, you might just find a limerick or two about someone you know or perhaps even about you.
Reflections by Diane deHaan - a collection of poetry
Published: November 5, 2015
This is Diane deHaan’s first poetry book. Reflections is the published collection of poems in a variety of genres. Poetry is the chiseled marble of language; it is a paint spattered canvas, but the poet uses words instead of paint. The poems in this book offer a reflection into the poet’s soul. They touch on a myriad of themes that are common to all; whether it is through laughter, love, loss, or friendship, that is inspired by the canvas of our imagination. It is the author’s desire that the reader will be able to identify with each expression from her heart, and to gain insight into their own soul from these poems through the reflections that are shared within the pages of her verses.
Her by Michael James Kaiser - a collection of poetry
Published: September 24, 2015
"Her" represents fractured fragments of Michael James Kaiser's paeans to love. Like his first anthology, "To Be Me," these introspective poems are tonal invocations to women, both real and imagined. The phrasing and flow quietly touches the reader's heart, sometimes with a whisper and a caress; sometimes with a raw ache. The feelings are fervent, true and universal. Musically it's cello, Spanish guitar, stand-up bass, and a woodwind or two. It would play in a small jazz club against an indigo backdrop with a mood that matches. Yet Michael James
Kaiser -- the man and his work -- is so uncanny that a UK-based modern country band could just as easily grab a lyrical riff or two and knock out an entire album of Kaiser's heartaches.
To Be Me by Michael James Kaiser - a collection of poetry
Published: June 22, 2015
Imagine a road trip. Harry Chapin at the wheel. Emily Dickinson rides shotgun. The old Vw van has room enough for Carl Sandburg and Studs Terkel. Jammed way back, buffeted by guitars, backpacks, and typewriters is Michael James Kaiser. He furiously takes notes all the while hearing whispers from Elizabeth Barrett in one ear and Townes Van Zandt in the other. This hodge-podge is too wistful - too ruggedly romantic - for words. Almost. Because someone took it all in. It incubates for years as tentative poetic doodles before a confidence that comes from aging pours forth in poem after poem after poem. Slams. Social media. Submissions to publishers and musicians. But then it happens. A floodgate opens and Michael James Kaiser's first published anthology of poems, To Be Me, is here.
Rhyme On You Crazy Diamond by David Anthony Daniels - a collection of poetry
Published: January 6, 2015
I love poetry and I love to write rhyming poems. My new book of rhyming poems contains four sections. The poetry in this book deals with everything from sorrow to love. I love rhyming poems because that presents a challenge. It's hard to write good rhyming poems without sounding like a Hip-Hop or rap artist. But I think I do a pretty good job of it. I hope you enjoy my book of rhyming poems.
Pieces of My Life by David Anthony Daniels - a collection of poetry
Published: December 4, 2014
Pieces of My Life is a collection of rhyming poems. It is about three of my favorite subjects to write about. Love, Sex, and Depression. Part 1 is about sex and love and part 2 is about the depression that I suffer from because I have a bi-polar disorder. If you also suffer from this horrid illness then I hope you can relate to this book. I try to add humor and sincerity to all my poems and I always write my poetry in rhyme.
Through the Mist by Régis Auffray - a collection of poetry
Published: May 7, 2015
The poems in this book offer hints through the mist of inspiration, often born of dreams, but more likely as a result of real life experiences and encounters, into the poet’s soul. They touch on a myriad of themes that are common to all who have undertaken the journey through this particular life in this place known as Earth.
It is the author’s hope that the reader will be able to identify with, to understand and perhaps to empathize with the various situations, dilemmas, conflicts, miseries, euphoria etc. that are expressed and thus shared through his verses.
Glimpses by Régis Auffray - a collection of poetry
Published: February 14, 2014
Poetry, like other forms of creative arts such as painting, music, sculpture etc. is a way for the poet to share life experiences – feelings, emotions, images – and thus express his or her personality. Most human beings (Earthians) have a desire to “be” with others and one of the ways this is done is through communication by whatever means are available. Poetry is one way of expressing one’s self.
The poems in this book offer glimpses into the poet’s soul. They touch on a myriad of themes that are common to all who have undertaken the journey through this particular life in this place known as Earth.
It is the author’s hope that the reader will be able to identify with, to understand and perhaps to empathize with the various situations, dilemmas, conflicts, miseries, euphoria etc. that are shared by means of his verses.
Glimpses is the author's first poetry collection of a non-limerick genre.
Born Again: The Limericks of Régis by Régis Auffray - a collection of limerick poetry
Published: December 27, 2012
Limericks, it has been said, represent the lowest form of poetry. They are generally silly or downright funny, perhaps enough to elicit a smile or even a laugh. They are challenging and fun to create because the writer has to manipulate the words in order to make them fit the requirements of the limerick genre.
The limericks in this book are fictional. However, most of them were inspired by real events, experiences, persons, animals, things, etc.
You may find that you think you recognize some of the individuals mentioned. You may even see yourself in one or more of the limericks presented here. Yes, some of them are satirical and perhaps even bitter. That is life I suppose.
This project is for the fun of writing without any real purpose except to indulge my silliness, my childish nature, and perhaps to make the reader smile.
Hurt by Nicola Ward - a collection of poetry
Published: March 28, 2012

Published: November 14, 2014

Through this book we hope to be the voice of this wonderful creature who’s existence has been in peril for many long years. We hope to bring awareness to his plight and our Poetry gives voice to the wolves that shared our life and to all wolves who cannot speak. May we be their Voice.
Song of the Wood by Susan Joyner-Stumpf - a collection of poetry
Published: October 15, 2013
My poems are an immediate rush of expression, an inner need to connect and to begin myself, and end the constant longing. It is a funnel through which all things eventually flow outwards, the essence that is me thrown to the masses. I write because I am this thing that must create, or so shall I be destroyed. Song of the Wood is my latest fall from the Heaven of Words, to play my instrument, my literary flute. I blow into this world my latest gesture, a kiss of meter and rhyme and metaphor, expecting nothing in return. Perhaps an echo, a sigh. What would be nice is someone to turn around and say, I needed every bit of that. My life would thus be complete.
I have been writing since the age of eight, over 40 years. It’s been a life-long journey of pleasure and pain into that great Unknown. But it’s enough. I’m one with it. I can only hope I’ve helped you find oneness too in this world of bits and pieces.
