Who doesn’t like some backstory to the creation of a project? I decided to do just that, share some of this collection more in-depth. Let’s start with that this project marks a first for me. I’m known for my horror and dark fantasy series The Blasphemer Series and my bestselling and award-winning short story Human Ouija. Both of these works were picked up by the publishing house Burning Willow Press, LLC after their self-publications. I’ve been included in many anthologies still writing horror or darker materials.
So, with all that why go poetry if I’ve established myself as a darker author? The answer to that is so simple, it’s time. Behind-the-scenes for years I’ve worked on things that I either never finished or put on a back burner waiting for the time to come. Poetry filled notebooks and then was forgotten about, some even found places on old accounts on art websites or profiles.
Last year, a very old poem of mine found itself included in Southern Fried Autopsies Anthology. It’s a darker poem, but not as dark as I have gotten in the past or even in the present, but it felt right to include that one in that project. Poetry is very personal to me. I can write fiction all day, but non-fiction is harder for me to be willing to release in the world as I’m a private person.
I never considered myself a poet even though I’ve been called that, I just write, and that’s what I call myself…a writer or author in reference toward published works. Poetry is non-fiction for me, it’s all inspired by raw emotions, events, situations, and people I know. With this project, you will be given the closest thing to a memoir or an autobiography I can give at this point in time.
I have planned a memoir and still working on one. This memoir is very hard for me to write because of the topic it covers and a very dark period in my life, but it’s a story that needs to be shared and will be shared when…you guessed it…it’s time.
Poems in this collection will cover topics that included but are not limited to:
But with all art, I believe, though these are the topics that inspired different poems included I hope that whoever reads them take away something for themselves. They’re up for interpretation!
I did a preview, sneak peek, of a cover I was working on for this upcoming poetry release, I’m doing this year. The original idea didn’t really fit for me, so I’ve changed it. The official ebook cover can be seen here! At a later date, the paperback edition of the cover will be shared. I always release first on ebook then later on in paperback.
Below is the one that was sneak-peeked. Either one is beautiful, but the one above feels right for this specific project more so. I don’t often change a cover after sharing it, but this poetry book is very special to me and I want to do it right.
